Different BIOS boot interactions? Perhaps the laptop got it figured out and the PC didn't

Thought so. Yeah, Linux reloaded your MBR with its own boot loader. You can run the win XP recovery CD and restore the MBR using a recovery console command, or you can install a boot manager program like BootItNG (www.terabyteunlimited.com). I love BootIT, lets you change your partition table on the fly
