if you have the original CD for Windows XP, follow the method below:

for Windows XP users

-Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
-When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
-Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
-Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
-You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
-Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter "E". This letter may be different on your computer.

copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\


-Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

This error message may also appear when your drive (files needed for booting) are heavily fragmented, its good to regularly run a defragmenter on the HD. If you cant keep a check on it manually, set some automatic software that will keep track of it daily and defragment when needed.
