smiley face and not finishing boot up???

Specs: Windows Vista
we downloaded the latest windows update and my desktop got stuck in a twenty hour reboot loop, so on the last time it restarted i hit f9 to run a recovery and the it wouldn't start up at all.... then my bone headed husband put in the vista disk to force it to boot (i guess) but it wont read it. it also says BOTH hdd are disabled. and at the final stage in the boot up screen it has a small square smiley face with a blinking cursor next to it... is it a virus???
