Assuming you havn't installed a third party boot loader:

Click start, run, and type in "msconfig" (without the quotes).

The tab that says "BOOT.INI" is the tab you want.

And in there click check all boot paths.
With all due respect John, I am the head of IT and I have it on good authority. If you type "Google" into Google, you can break the Internet. So please, no one try it, even for a joke.........It's not a laughing matter. You can break the Internet.
