    Your machine cannot find an operating system. You either need to get the restore disks, or if you cannot find them, contact Apple and get a new set. Alternatively, you could just go and buy a copy of OS X and iLife if you like and get the same effect.

    ^^ Seconded.

    ^^ Also seconded. But there's probably a reason it can't find the operating system. May be a dead hard drive... (hope you backed your data up, OP)
