Computer beeps twice on start up and cant find operating sys

I have a old lenovo j115 desktop that used to beep 8 times on start up and the monitor would stay black and thats all that would happen. After I replaced the watch battery on the motherboard it now starts but I get two beeps and it goes to a screen like the picture in the link http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/3223/20120622172929508.jpg
So I pressed F2 and then it did this
I'm using the hard drive it came with and that was the result. Maybe I wired it wrong? However when i used a older hard drive from a Windows XP computer it did the same thing but it replaced the no operating system found to NTLDR is missing. I am willing to use the older windows XP hard drive instead of the windows vista one that cant even find the operating system. However I don't even know what NTLDR is. Any help is appreciated.
