Hello,

Try this 1

1) Place the Windows XP CD in the drive and restart your PC.

2) Go to BIOS and set the first boot device as CD\DVD drive.

3) When a message appears "Press any key to boot from CD ..." just press any

key.

4) When the setup screen appears, Press the "R" key to go to "Recovery

Console".

5) After entering into the "Recovery Console" you will notice a prompt

"Which Windows installation would you like to log onto" --> Press 1 and then

press Enter.

[Note : Above the prompt you can notice the number your have to enter.

Example : 1 : C\Windows --> So we have to press 1 and then Enter]

6) Enter your administrator password --> Now the prompt appears as

C:\Windows>

Now enter the below command

cd .. ---> Press Enter. Now your prompt changes to C:\>

7) Here I assume your CD\DVD drive letter as G. Now enter the below command

g: --> Press Enter. Now your prompt changes to G:\>

Now enter the below command

cd i386 --> Press Enter. Now your prompt changes to G:\I386>

8) Now enter the below commands

copy ntldr c: ---> Press Enter. 1 file(s) copied. will appear.

copy ntdetect.com c: --> Press Enter. 1 file(s) copied. will appear.

Now restart your PC by entering the command exit and pressing the Enter key.

After restart set your first boot device as "Hard disk" in the BIOS.

Good Luck
