Go into the bios and select first boot device to be your hard drive.

NTLDR Missing
If you have FAT32 partitions, it is much simpler than with NTFS. Just boot with a Win98 floppy and copy the NTLDR or NTDETECT.COM files from the i386 directory to the root of the C:\ drive.

Insert and boot from your Windows XP CD. At the first R=Repair option, press the R key Press the number that corresponds to the correct location for the installation of Windows you want to repair. Typically this will be #1 Enter in the administrator password when requested Enter in the following commands (X: is replaced by the actual drive letter that is assigned to the CD ROM drive) COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C\: COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:\ Take out the CD ROM and type exit

thanks for the help offered unfortunetly i couldn,t get any of them to work.what had happened was i done an upgrade from home to pro about 10days ago and to say i had a few problems would be an understatement.anyway what i did in the end was reinstall home (tried to reinstall pro a few times but no difference)then i done the upgrade and so far for the first time since the upgrade all seems well.i will keep my fingers legs and eyes crossed that things will be fine.thanks again for trying to help.
