fixed it, just had to run the recovery console from XP boot CD then do the FIXMBR command, kind of a pain with the SATA drivers i had to find and install for it to even recognize my SATA drive....stupid windows

I reinstall it once/twice a year, I use a lot of soft, and I haven't much time reinstalling it, so I use a lot of sequrity programs, and I have no troubels with spyware\viruses or anything else. So It not so much reasons to reinstall windows frequently.
