-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.

Dear samiko
Last Night I did it.
But after that I saw a message.
"Boot.ini file is missing.
<windows root>\system32\hal.dll
re-install the copy of above mention file."

I didn't know about this problem.

So that I re-install my windows xp.

It was a horrible night for me.

anyway dear samiko, thanks for everything.
I think I have learn something.

Thanks again.

you could have asked before re-installing Windows as the boot.ini file can be created easily.

Dear mm_akash,

after you put in the admin password and then you see the d:\windows> or whatever it shows you. you need to do the repair. type this "chkdsk /r" and there is a space between the k and the /r that will start a repair on the partition. any other problems leme know.
