    boot to Windows XP recovery console by pressring R in bootable Windows XP CD... logon to Windows installation ur ur admin password... then in recovery console... use the command ... fixboot
    for more commands use HELP command it wil show all available commands....
    Or if u hv access to ny Windows XP PC then in Help and Support Center u can find more abt recover console...
