at boot up this is what is displayed

Searching floppy boot record: not found
Searching IDE-0 boot record: ok

then below it, it says:
NTLDR is missing
press any key to restart

so i looked at the microsoft site, and it said to use a 98 bootup disk up to copy sys.com to C:

now when i boot it up it shows the Windows 98 screen and then sits there and does nothing with only access to dos. also when i press F8, its not the XP menu anymore, but Windows 98.
ah man i screwed up this time

i have some stuff on my hard drive that i need, im currently using a 2.1 gb hard drive now (lol) and theres little space left, so can't transfer any files over. please help
thanks

well u could do it the long way if you have another hard drive. you can copy all your necessary files over to the extra hdd using the dos prompt.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
