Good Morning Gurus,
I was trying to make a usb boot disk yesterday from this link
http://maketecheasier.com/boot-and-install-windows-7-from-usb-flash-drive/2009/01/23/

Then, i shut my PC down at night and boot it back up this morning, and now it doesn't boot to windows xp anymore. It kept on going to loading DRMK V8.0, and into this dos GUI which has scan memory , scan devices and exit. How an i fix this? please advise...

Thanks,
AmazingTrans

This may sound stupid, but have you unplugged your USB drive from the computer? If you don't, the machine will keep booting from it.

If you do have your USB device unplugged, then reboot tapping the F8 key and select "Safe Mode". Then go to start > run, type msconfig (enter) and select system restore > restore to an earlier date and choose a date just prior to your issue happening.

Seems to be a Dell system problem, http://en.community.dell.com/dell-groups/new-to-community/f/3511/t/19326272.aspx .

Sorry but I don't have any experience with Dell systems.

Solved!
I fixed it by
1) Booting my PC windows using Hiren's BootCD options. When i got in there, I had to go to administrative tools -> Computer Management -> Disk management -> select your drive where windows is installed -> right click and select as drive active.

Hope that helps people out there
