Since that moment I can't re-boot the PC, It doesn't work and never appear the 
screen to select the OS (Operative System) dos or linux.

When I try to re-install linux 9 detects that exist the linux 9 version, I try 
to make a rebootable diskette but appear this Warning:

"Aviso: No se ha instalado ningun paquete del kernel en su sistema. La 
configuracion del gestor de arranque no cambiara"

The possible tanslation can be:
"No kernel package was installed into your system. The manager agent's 
configuration didn't change."

And can't re-boot my PC.

Finally a could re-make the MBR with fdisk /mbr utility of windows and I see
