I run windows XP Pro x64.
I just changed an old DVD-rom with a new one and after i was done this problem come up.
When i try to start windows normally, from the C:\ drive, I get the "Error Loading OS" message and the boot stops.
However when I boot from the installation disk, it boot just fine and everyting works normally.
I can see all of my drive in the boot sequence and I checked for conflicts in my device manager.
I checked for memory and startup viruses and I run CCleaner to fix a possibly corrupted registry, I also did a system restore to no avail, everytime I change the boot sequence to have the C:\ drive boot first, I get the same message.
Also, should I decide to re-install windows, will I loose all of my shortcuts and such for the installed programs?
