You would have to make certain you have the Windows Key handy in the event you need to reinstall it. Sound like you may have a corrupt file, thus not allowing for you to boot windows. As your friend what was the issue with is to you can troubleshoot it properly.

Then you need an installation media, like a Windows XP, 7, 8 DVD with a legal key.
