Greetings,

Try to restore the MBR following these steps:

First, download EasyBCD to the link below:
https://ccm.net/download/download-5394-easybcd

Install and run it

On the left side of EasyBCD, click on the Add New Entry button.

In the top section under Operating Systems, click on the Windows tab.

To the right of Type, select Windows NT/2k/XP/2k3 from the drop down menu.

To the right of Name, you can leave the default Microsoft Windows XP as the name to be displayed in the Windows Boot Manager, or you can type whatever name you would like to have instead.

Click on the Add Entry button.

On the left side of EasyBCD, click on the Bootloader Setup button, select (dot) the Install the Windows XP bootloader to the MBR option, and click on the Write MBR button.

Restart the computer

Good Luck!

Hello thank you for prompt reply, well i downloaded the easybcd program burned it on cd but when i insert on the laptop doesnt happens nothing should it be burned as iso image? Or is there a guide to use easybcd i mean to create the cd because i have searched google couldnt find anythign about this, the only information i got was a forum saying to use easybcd as iso the windows mbr must be intact. i have internet only in my mobile so if theres something else to download its dificult for me.
