    Boot problem


    Hi,
    I had a bad sector on my HDD and they gave me a new one.
    I copied the the old one on the new one but I seem to have some boot problems.

    Click image for larger version

    This is the screen that I get.
    Since my laptop doesn't have a CD drive my original windows for reinstall and stuff is located on a separate locked partition. I copied that too, I copied the entire drive.
    However when I click F8 for startup settings the screen just flashes and does nothing.
    F9 loads my OS.
    How do I change the option to load it automatically?
    I don't know what it's a attempting to load currently...
    PLS help.
