Hanna 1, I didn't try system repair. The disk wouldn't boot period so I didn't have the option.
gregrocker, you have succinctly described everything I tried before posting here. I changed the boot order to various configurations, reset the bios, tried(successfully) a linux live CD, and made sure that the Windows disk was working.
Ultimately I just caved and borrowed a family members computer so I could make a bootable USB. I have searched pretty extensively and no one seems to have had a problem that was quite like mine.
Thanks for the welcome and quick responses,
