    Not knowing what your system specs are...

    Have you started up using the system disc? You should be able to recover using it.

    Press c as the computer starts up with the system disk in it; it will boot with that disc. From the installer menu pick Disk Utility, then your system HD disk information, then first aid and run it. See if it will boot to the HD after doing that.
