I had this other week, i just reinstalled windows cos i managed to screw up my hdd.
Have you removed a hdd from ur pc recently? If so then thats your problem. you might have removed the hdd with the boot files in it so you need to put these files onto the hdd on your hdd in your pc now.

I'll say the rest when i know this is your problem. cos if its not then it will be a waste of time lol.

Not if its the same as what happened to mine. It wouldnt even give me the choice of repairing. I looked at this website that showed you how to do it but mine was too screwed lol.

The link i posted is easier to follow but either will do. basically go to install windows and press "r" when it says what partition you want to install the OS on.

put in ur Win XP cd and fgo to repair, first you may need a new Boot.INI file, Download a Linux Live CD from somewhere access \DEV\HDA1\WIN and scroll down to boot.ini and post what is in the file here, that way we can spot the error and help u out
