There are a few ways to fix this...

Try formatting with a genuine Windows disk with a low level format..sometimes works

Or try repairing windows..here's how

Insert and boot from your WindowsXP CD.
At the first R=Repair option, press the R key
Press the number that corresponds to the correct location for the installation of Windows you want to repair.
Typically this will be #1
Enter in the administrator password when requested
Enter in the following commands (X: is replaced by the actual drive letter that is assigned to the CD ROM drive.
COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C\:
COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:\
Take out the CD ROM and type exit


Another way is to put your hard drive into and external drive and copy the file from the cd that way.


This also happens when you have left a usb flash drive plugged in.
