Default help!!!!!! hal.dll and ntldr missing

I have an old dell dimension 8100 that ran like crap. Today I took the hd out, put it in another computer and formated it. when i put the hd back in the dell hoping to install xp pro, it gave me a message, "ntldr missing press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart". I cant do anything at this point.

You'll have to replace the ntldr file on your current harddrive. Insert your OS cd and copy it from the i386 folder.
