Please explain the issue you are having. When is this error showing up.
Have you tried booting into safe mode or Last known Good Configuration
What happened just prior to thi issue starting?
Was there any new hardware or software installed?
Any updates downloaded and installed?
anything downloaded online just prior to issue starting?
Also check the boot sequence and make sure you HD is first boot device and not the network card.

are you wanting this to be fixed ?
if so, what operating system do you have (xp - home or professional) ?
do you have the original windows cd ?
can you start the machine ?

click the advanced tab,
click 'settings' in the startup and recovery box
then 'edit' in the next window,
notepad will open with some text in, can you copy and paste the text here, so we can have a look at it,
(the notepad file that opens is your boot.ini - it will look similar to this)
[boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

Here I'm trying to help with a Roxio Creator error and now this with the Boot.ini and I see another now opened to answer for this one on boot.ini problem

click start then search,
in the box 'All or part of the file name:' type boot.ini
click 'more advanced options'
make sure its 'all files and folders' in the drop down box
tick (if needed) 'search system folders', 'search hidden files and folders' and 'search subfolders'
then click search
in the right window you should see boot.ini in 'my computer'
right click and open with notepad
copy and paste the contents here
(the picture will be slightly different than yours, as my boot.ini is on a different partition, i did a search on just xp to show how your search field should look)
if its not there then get xp to create a new boot.ini
