I'd try re-installing your boot loader, or installing another one (Chameleon, Boot Think, or maybe even GRUB 2).

FWIW, the problem is caused by different assumptions by Windows and OS X about the hardware clock (which is distinct from a software clock that the OS maintains once it's booted). Both systems use...

Then I'm afraid I don't know what's wrong. You could try running it from the Terminal, though; that might produce some helpful text-mode message about why it's failing.
