ThHe error usually occurs because the C drive has been compressed. As far as I am aware XP uses NTLDR rather than Boot Manager which is Vista related.
It may be worth trying the NTLDR fix from click here If this works and allows XP to boot,remove the tick from 'Compress this drive to save space' from the properties of the C drive
