My computer won't load my Windows, because some how my PCI Bus Driver got corrupted or deleted or is just being stupid. So is it possible for me to create a MS-DOS boot disk that could install the driver i need, or is it possible, to create a boot CD that has all the drivers on it needed to load my OS so i can get into my Windows, and fix the problem manually?

Yo, i so wish that would work, but the driver missing is the one that controls my motherboards connections, so i can't access windows through any means.
