    This looks like a Windows error message. Somehow your iMac has been instructed to boot as a Windows system, and it cannot find the necessary boot files (which you have since deleted). To reset PRAM (aka NVRAM) follow these instructions: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3603

    You may be able to boot into Recovery Mode (typically Option R). From there, you may be able to set the correct Mac boot location (Prefs Startup).
