  1. Is your BIOS set to boot from your hard drive?
  2. Go into your bios and change the boot priority so that the hard drive (that your windows operating system is installed on) is the first priority. This shooould be the answer to all of life's questions... >_> If that's not the answer then there may be issues with your windows install in which case I think you can use the xp cd to run the repair utility on your hard drive.
