Thank you, ScottyC.
I followed your instructions to "Refresh your PC" and the "Operating system not found" message is no longer appearing. Although Refresh your PC does keep most of your files intact, be advised that it will remove some of your applications. Below is the list of applications that were removed from my PC that I had to reinstall:
Adobe Flash Player, Blackberry Desktop Software, Brother and Cannon Print drivers, CampanionLink, Microsoft SkyDrive, Microsoft Office 13, Firefox & Quicktime.
So, although I had to spend about 90 minutes reloading all of these applications, I am grateful that this message is no longer appearing. However, since the workaround seems to be just entering Ctrl-Alt-Del after the "Operating system not found" message appears, I might recommend doing that until you have the time to reload your applications.
Thank you very much, ScottyC.
