Make sure you have all floppys and cdroms removed from your computer and try booting up again.,

You might want to try booting in to safe mode( by pressing the F8 key on boot) to see if it wil allow you to do that, if so then you can go in and fix it from there..

Well the first thing to take a look at is to make sure that the 1st boot device is set to hdd0, if it is set as such you might have to do a windows repair.

1.boot from cd
2.press 'r' for recovery console, press 1 and enter when prompted for wich windows installation you want to log onto.
3.type the administrator if any otherwise press enter
4. in the console type the following
chkdsk /p 'enter'
fixboot 'enter' 'y' and 'enter' when asked to write new boot sector
fixmbr 'enter' 'y' when asked to write new boot partition
5. restart and see if same problem persists
