I have a friend's mini laptop here that I believe is infected. It was working properly and then suddenly would not boot up, instead giving the following error message: 'Windows Failed to start,' and asking if user wants to repair or start windows normally. When the option 'start windows normally' is selected, it then gives the following error message, 'Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key.' Tried Safe Mode but get the same result.
Your help is greatly appreciated,

CPU Intel Atom 1.6Ghz
