If you get an error that NTLDR is not found during bootup,

If you have FAT32 partitions, it is much simpler than with NTFS.


Just boot with a Win98 floppy and copy the NTLDR or NTDETECT.COM files
from the i386 directory to the root of the C:\ drive.



For NTFS:



1. Insert and boot from your WindowsXP CD.

2. At the first R=Repair option, press the R key

3. Press the number that corresponds to the correct location for the installation of Windows you want to repair.
Typically this will be #1

4. Enter in the administrator password when requested

5. Enter in the following commands (X: is replaced by the actual drive letter that is assigned to the CD ROM drive.


COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C\:

COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:\

6. Take out the CD ROM and type exit
