Can you boot with the WinXP CD and try a repair installation which will sort out the boot sector?

What a donkey i am,i did not realise you could do an upgrade installation over the top of xp(repair).In stead i thought it was the dos repair it offers you before the upgrade option.
Something new i've learnt.
Thankyou Diodorus Siculus
