sonofamonkey...apparently without the ERD this ain't gonna jive...the windows install seems to be too badly corrupted...two options

take the drive out and hook it up as a slave in the machine you're posting from, copy off all your data (music, pictures, documents)...format the drive and start from scratch..

OR

do a parallel install and remove the corrupted one...
