Boot using the WinXP cd and use the recovery console (hitting R when it asks).
IF you get the dos based screen and you get something like:
Please choose which Windows you want to use:1.... Or something like that. If you do, then type 1 and hit enter, it will ask for your administrator password which I hope you know .
Then at the command prompt enter: chkdsk /r
The /r switch tells chkdsk to scan the entire drive and recover any bad sectors. Depending on the size of your drive this could take a REALLY long time. Once that is all said and done. Reboot the computer and you should not get the error. It's up for grabs how long this fix will last.

If you get a new drive...you still can have the option to use the old drive as a "slave" drive...thus giving you more storage space without having to boot up.
Also, wanted to restate what I had written earlier...I had forgot one step...
Make sure that the drive with the boot problem is the master.
Insert your XP disk and boot from the disk
Select recovery console
follow the prompts until you are in DOS
at the above prompts type FIXMBR
This will fix the Mater Boot Record for Windows it will ask you if you are sure and follow the prompts
once complete type CHKDSK /r
that is CHKDSK space /r
this will check the disk and repair any bad sectors
once complete type exit .....then the system will reboot.

Now, Lets discuss some good firewalls. I am running a gaming server that requires high internet speeds. The firewall can affect my speeds . it must also be free/Bug Free.
