    To correct the problem, the user must boot the computer with a Windows 95 or 98 Startup diskette or another bootable diskette with sys.com on it. Then, at the "A:\>" prompt, type "sys c:" and press "enter." A "System Transferred" prompt should appear and then the user must reboot the computer without the diskette.

    I had the same problem, when i had xp installed on two separate partitions and decided to get rid of one of the partitions. To fix: format and reinstall :p thats what i did. Or just do what benny said :D

    I had the same problem also; looks like it's a common one.
    I fixed it with a quick format and a reinstall.
