Try inserting the below or adding it to your existing one.

Goto 'my computer' > 'properties' > 'advanced' > 'startup and recovery' > 'edit (boot.ini)'

Or just get it in eXPlorer


[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
D:\="Windows Operating System on D:"
