If you have a Windows disc, on another computer create an ISO image of this disc using IMGBurn, burn the Image to USB Flash drive with Rufus, both in my signature.
Boot off of the newly created Flash drive and choose Repair Your Computer. Now press Shift+F10 to go directly to the Command Prompt.
At command prompt (x: sources) type this exactly as written:
bcdedit |find “osdevice” (Must inc and the |), the | before Find is the Upper case \ key) press enter. This will tell you what drive letter the OS is on.It may not be on the C: drive.
Once you know what drive Windows is on, type the drive letter and press enter, now you can run the bootrec /fixboot, fixmbr or rebuildbcd commands.

When Windows installs, it installs a Hidden small partition of about 500MB or so that has no driver letter, called System, This holds the Boot information.
When you boot to the RE Command Prompt, this drive many times gets assigned a drive letter of C: making the Windows drive D:
You can confirm this in the Command Prompt by DIR both the C: and D: partitions. If neither have the Windows directory in them, then the OS has become corrupted and will need to be reinstalled.

X: is the temporary RAM drive that is accessed from the Windows install media.
As stated, if your hidden System drive was assigned a drive letter when booting to the RE, then it would push the Windows drive to the next drive letter etc.
I would backup any files you want off of that computer and save them to a USB HDD, then I would try the recovery.
What is the make and model# of your computer? You would access Recovery by pressing a certain key at Bootup, many models it's F11 to restore computer to factory defaults. Your Make and Model will vary.
