Repeated 01's appear when I boot up!

    I had Mandrake Linux on another hard drive on my computer, and what would happen when I booted up was there was a linux screen, and it gave me the option to boot into windows OR linux. It's odd, because my master hard drive had XP on it, and the slave had Linux, but it always went to that boot screen.

    Anyways, this morning I decided to completely wipe the hard drive with Linux on it. I used "Kill Disk" on it, and wiped it off. When I rebooted, it gets to the Boot from CD screen, and all of the sudden, about 20 lines of "01" show up. I've tried changing around the jumper in the back, and I get the same results. I'm assuming it's because Linux placed something in the boot up log for XP telling it to go to that screen, and when it loaded up and Linux wasn't there...it gives me the 01's. Is there ANY way to check this? I have to get back into windows, because I've been working on a map for some time for a game I play, and I can't lose it, again!

    SUMMARY: XP gives me "01 01 01" repeated on the Boot from CD screen when I boot up. Need a way to get back into windows, or tweak the boot process. I can get into the recovery console, but not sure what to do from there.
