If you loose all your BIOS info, it could very well be the battery!
Updated my system specs on this forum. HDD is a WD Caviar Black 750GB SATA.
I can understand how the MBR might become corrupt if the system crashes but why will booting up with certain dvd's in the drive cause the MBR to be wiped out?
This works like clock work.. If I reboot my PC with the GTA4 dvd in the drive it will only boot to XP, I do not even have the option of booting to 7. If I take the dvd out it still will not give me the option of 7, not until I repair the MBR. It will work flawlessly until I boot with "certain" dvd's in the the drive.
I would think as long as the dvd is not bootable it should not cause an issue.
