Hi,

Try this 1

1)Place the windows xp cd and boot from it.

2) When you find a window with "Window Recovery Console " press R

3) Select the drive number where Windows XP is installed. Mostly it will be "1".

Just enter 1 ---> press enter --->type administrator password.

4) Then enter these commands

fixmbr and press enter.

When it asks you that "Are you sure you want to write a new MBR" press y to

confirm it.

5) Then type this command

fixboot and press enter.

When it asks for confirmation press y.
