I assume you did this in bios/setup correct? Please explain

If you are running a raid setup this could be a major problem if not try clearing the cmos by removing the motherboard battery for 10 minutes with the computer unpluged. Then startup, enter bios and load the defaults. Save when you exit and hopefully it will boot to windows

Thanks. I went into the bios and reset to "fail safe" and that got me to boot. I couldn't remember how I got the drives set up in the first place and thats what I was looking for.

Your welcome, you may want to load the optimized defaults, this will give the computer optimine performance, if it fails for some reason you now no how to revert back. If everthing is in good working order the optimized defaults are your best bet
