Mashing F8 would still just show blinking cursor. Just got a UBCD burned and installed the GAG bootloader on my roomies comp, so at least it will boot to Windows now. I should be good from here, I'll probably use EasyBCD to get him all fixed up now that I can get into Windows.
Still kinda wondering what could have caused it, since he came back and said his computer just showed blank cursor on screen. I suspect that it was rebooting after installing Win7 SP1 and something went a little wrong. Any thoughts?
