    David,
    I'm doing it via cell phone, which is extremely, extremely annoying.

    Cliff, even had I had a recovery drive, I don't know if it would be usable. Mashing escape whilst it turned on only brought up a small text-thing saying "ESC... Pause Startup"
    Still waiting to see if the end results are the same.

    Can you get into bios to and change the boot order? If not remove your hard drive and then try to get into bios. or if you know how reset it.

    Try this, power down, unplug the power pack, remove the battery, then press and hold the power button for say 5 seconds or more. Now plug the power pack back in, battery too if you want. Then power up and quickly press the key required to access the BIOS. Make and model of laptop please? How big is the hard drive? "boot image did not authenticate" makes me wonder if its maybe using boot to wim image?

    That's OK I mean it,. it is good advice. One brings his PC or TV to the shop and "OH! it's working now, but it wasn't at home"
