I just find it really, really weird because the implication of being able to get a Windows boot menu is that the system thinks everything is fine and Windows doesn't, but the error message itself implies that the actual boot process is failing, meaning it shouldn't even get to a Windows boot menu.

I wonder if something as simple as getting a "DOS" prompt running and typing 'fdisk /mbr' wouldn't fix this? It could be a matter of a recent update or new software installation messing with things it shouldn't have.

An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.

Working...
