    "No command for booting operating system." I've gotten this error at least a dozen times before, but usually, restarting fixes it. This time, however, after six hours and twenty-five or so restarts, I'm still getting this error. I don't have a floppy drive, so I can't make a Windows boot disk (they really need to make it so you can create those on CD; who the **** has a floppy drive anymore?).

    How do I fix this?

    First, check your drive order didn't get changed in the computer's BIOS. One of my computers changes the order every time I plug in a new bootable device and boot from it. Check and make sure the hard drive that you want to boot is first in the hard drive list or shown directly after the cd/dvd drive in the regular boot list, depending on how your BIOS is setup.

    If you have your DD cd, have you tried booting from it and reactivating OSS?

    My boot order is the same, and I don't have a copy of DD. Someone installed it for me.

    Never mind. One of my roommates found a copy of XP, so I was able to use the Recovery Console to repair my MBR.
