OS: windows 7 64bit


I have a pc running windows 7 64bit
ASUS P8P67 PRO, Socket-1155 motherboard
intel i7 2600k
my boot ssd is a Corsair SSD Force Series F115, 115GB

So i let the pc stay turned on during the night because i wanted to stream media from it it my laptop. When i got up in the morning my computer was displaying blue-screen and asking me to restart, I saw some "drive something initializing" at the bottom, but figured it was stuck and been going on all night or whatever, and it clearly asked me to restart the system, so I did.

When I try to boot now i get this, I'll just copy the whole ting. where the numbers are I'll just write blabla

Intel(r) Boot Agent GE v1.3.65
copyright etc

Client mac addr: blabla GUID blabla
CLIENT IP blabla MASK blala DHCP IP: blabla
PXE-E76: Bad or missing multicast discovery address

PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.

Reboot and select proper Boot device
or insert Boot Media in selectet Boot device and press a key.

Any help that might shed some light on this matter is greatly appreciated!

I tried pulling out my ethernet cable and reboot again and got this (unsure if it has anything to do with me trying this.)

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting intel boot agent

Reboot and select proper Boot device
or insert Boot Media in selectet Boot device and press a key.

When i start my computer it shows me a list over drives installed,
I now only see my 1tb hdd, not my SSD. Not looking good :p
