We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows

When I pop my cd into the cd-rom drive, and let my computer boot from cd-rom, when I press "R," I don't get the prompt that let's me select which partion or OS install you want to work with, usually "1" or whatever is listed for C:\Windows. So what must I do? Just reinstall Windows and lose all my files??! Any advice is appreciated.
