I have no idea what went wrong, flash player started failing on me like it usually does after about 3 weeks of my computer constantly being on, it stops playing sound and the video stops after a few seconds, so I restarted like I always do, it didn't restart so I held the power button, that didn't work so I pulled the battery, now when I turn it on in normal mode it takes forever to boot, then goes to what looks like a terminal screen but you can't enter commands.
I restarted went into recovery mode and it does its scrolling text thing, then it says Done. Done. then flashes a 9-line error with stuff about IO and random crap.
Memory test was fine and im checking my OS disk for errors now.
any insight as to what happened/how I can fix it?
EDIT, also, when I get to the screen to choose which OS to boot to, I went into command line, couldn't figure anything out, then typed exit
at the top was my HDD, which had "No valid Operating System Installed" and then the boot order below that.

If I'm posting, I probably have something horribly wrong with my computer, there's no obvious explanation for it, that's just the way it is.
