I think it lost the CD driver.
I built a RV-6 and flew it for over 5 years and sold it so I could retire in 2001. The plane is now in upstate New York. It is white & green strips with a shamrock on it's tail.
You might try this: boot your machine and hit the right key(s) to get into the BIOS (usually "DEL" or "F2" or something like that, check your system docs to make sure). Find where you can set the "Boot Sequence" and make sure that the box will try to boot from the CD/DVD drive *before* it tries the hard drive. When you next reboot with the Windows disk in the CD/DVD you should be OK.
PS: I'll keep an eye out for an RV-6 with the shamrock. I live in northern Westchester.
