    I had my box dual booted with WIn2k Sp2 and WinXp when xp came out because I did not know if I would like it. well of course I loved it and have used it ever since, pretty much never booting into 2k. well without thinking I went ahead and pretty much whiped the partition that had 2k on it. today restarted and got error that it could not find NTLDR. I am thinking if I can edit the boot.ini(if indeed that is the file) I could get it running but am not sure.
    Any suggestions out there? someone said to try the Fixboot option on the cd.. I want to avoid a reinstall of xp as much as possible.

    Probably no help but NTLDR, is located in folder I386, on the XP disk.

    This may help not sure but

    boot winxp from the cd, start the recovery console and type fixboot
