Doesnt seem to work.

I know i have to copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM to the hard drive, but i got so many letters here its hard to know which is which :S

Is there a way like to install windows XP again, so it over writes the setup files but not my personal documents?#

Cheers

I have sorted the problem.

I installed XP on a seperate HDD, installed some recovery software, and recovered the files, then formatted the main HDD and now its working fine.

Thank you all
