Ok, this is the first time I've ever done this so here goes.

I have a 2 year old Dell laptop with Vista. It's worked fine until today. I started it up and got a screen from Windows Boot Manager saying the Windows failed to start. It says to put in the Windows Install Disk and reboot. Underneath that it says

File: Boot\BCD
Status: Oxc000000f
Info: And error occurred while attempting to the read the boot configuration data.

I put the installation disk in but when I do it just comes back to this same notice again and again when I reboot.

Any help would be appreciated.

In your computer's BIOS/CMOS Setup, reset it to try and boot from the CD/DVD drive before the hard drive. For example:
