After searching through topics with similar titles here, I have followed some of the advice.
The problem I am having, is that after pressing F8 at the EULA, I dont get the option to press "R". It just wants to reinstall a new installation.
The reason I'm trying to reinstall XP, is that I run a dual boot system with 98SE on my C: drive and XP Pro on a seperate D: drive.
I reinstalled 98SE a few days ago, and as a result, lost the dual boot manager that normally comes up after the POST. I've delved into how to correct this, but it all seems kind of complex, having to mess around with the boot.ini etc, and reinstalling would seem to be the painless option.
I tried "fixboot", and thought I had sorted it, but upon rebooting, it informed me that "NTLDR" was missing.
It's not a great problem, if need be I will just have to reinstall a fresh XP, and loose some of my data, I've moved a lot of things I need to keep, to my E: drive, but I'd like to minimise any hassles and keep whats already on D:.
