    I tried to restart into windows as I normally do, holding Option on restart...well now all I get is the white screen where it stops/freezes and a press of the power button shuts down instantly. I have tried repairing permissions from Disk Utility and PRAM reset both do nothing. Installed rEFIt and I can choose where to boot but in rEFIt it shows Windows on 3rd partition and then Legacy OS on HD...both of which lead to my ONLY windows installation.

    Boot drive is a 120gb owc mercury extreme pro ssd.

    It seems when it is connected via ethernet to my netgear router it wont let me option choose, connected via ethernet directly to the wall in the dorm it lets me choose just fine...
