"Master Boot Record Ereor" and "Press a".

I press a and then the conputer will try to boot up
but cuts off and goes back to black screen with the
"Master Boot Record Ereor" and "Press a".

It does this over & over??

My XP with Windows 7?

Do you mean you have a Dual Boot setup with XP and Windows 7? Did it ever work or is this happening after installing XP or Win 7? Which was installed first?

Do you have a Windows 7 install DVD? If not you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here: Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River.
Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

For techies or folks who work on computers: Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility.
This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.
