I recently deleted some type of driver or driver software when I thought that I was updating my dell drivers. I ended up deleting something that recognized my "CD/DVD/CDRW" drive. I then removed the entire "CD/DVD/CDRW" drive completely and then it started to work but with issues.

Now I not only need to use my "CD" drive but I also need to use my computer but it won't let me pass that screen for anything and gives me the "No Bootable Devices. Strike F1 to retry reboot" message.

I am completely willing to delete everything on the computer and start completely over. I don't have the "XP" original disc, but I do have a windows 2000 disc that I am willing to download even though it came with XP.
