Default Boot Problem

I recently tried dual booting 64 bit and 32 bit after i made the partion for the 32 bit i made it as primary one (so it kept booting and saying NTLDR missing) so i deleted it and made it one big partition now im getting and error saying "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key" does anyone know how i can fix this?

Did you install XP, you only get that ntldr is missing because it's corrupted or there is no OS.

To fix your 64bit XP partiton:
Set the 64bit XP partition active. If that doesn't work boot with the cd and go into recovery console and use fixmbr and fixboot.
