Any chance you have Disk Warrior or Drive Genius? Both are very good Disk Repair utilities and may be be to fix that.

You may still need to install OS X again, so finding someone or someplace (Libraries sometimes have OS's to loan out) that has a retail version of OS X like your to re-install.

But first need the drive either repaired or backed up and re-formatted.
