It's a bit late for that, since you have no running operating system nor functioning system drive. I would suggest you replace your C drive, install the operating system then plan on installing Oracle again, and I'm afraid you'll be losing your current database unless you have in your possession a recent export of it. You've lost all of your registry settings applicable to your current Oracle installation and I don't know how you'll get them back. Possibly someone can assist you, at great cost, in recovering enough information from your failed drive to re-instate your current registry and avoid reinstalling Oracle. This, however, will require someone with knowledge and the proper tools to extract data from a 'dead' hard disk.

Possibly someone else knows of a different 'solution'.
