sounds like your hardware doesnt support ata 66
go into the bios and if you have a selectable setting for your cd roms and or harddrive drop it down to either ata 33 or choose auto.
You also might have a dos loader in your autoexec.bat or config.sys which is calling a flawed or non existant program-
If you have a boot floppy disk boot to dos and try del autoexec.bat <enter>
This will delete the file-windows will boot without it.
Or rename autoexec.bat autoexec1.bat <enter>
This will save the file but it won't load on boot-Wrong file name
Then edit out the offending commands with notepad and resave.
