    try restalling windows over your current installation. apparently you have some how screwed up your current boot.ini.

    Edit your Boot.ini and see what it looks like. Mine looks like this:

    [boot loader]
    timeout=3
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

    I have WindowsXP installed on the C:\ partition of the first harddisk.
