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
