Hello again. The last time I had a computer problem this forum was amazing so I have returned from more help. I was able to rescue my computer from my daughters psychotic boyfriend but when I tried to boot it up, I got this message. "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device" I have an older system probably 2002 or 2003 and it has windows XP professional on it. I can boot from another windows xp home edition cd since the psychotic girl beater kept the cds and messed with the computer. I was able to try fixmbr from the recovery console and tried fixboot, but neither have changed the message. Not sure what else to try here or whether it is hopeless. Thank you all so much.
