So you no longer have windows on the hard drive and you dont have the disc?

I'm afraid the only possible way of getting it back if you have lost the disc (except for finding it), unless you have a backup as an image file somewhere, is to buy Windows 98 again...or something newer like XP

are you sure you deleted it all. Something would have popped up and told you that it was deleting or reformating..something. Have you tried restarting??
