device. Last time it would loop on start, but I system restored and it was just fine. I'm thinking that I could boot from a Windows XP CD and fix the boot settings, but the thing is, I don't have a windows XP disc, nor do I have a working optical drive, because for some reason my system will not recognize the Samsung drive that I installed recently. Any solutions? And if I have to go get an XP disc, what exactly would I do with it when I got it?
