xp bootloader **** it up



hello everybody

i did something really stupid. i'll give you the full story

yesterday i started with reinstalling my pc , xp off course :)

then today i had an idea. why not making a ghost
so i made a ghost of my drive d were xp is on but if forget that the drive were i was putting it on is drive c.

so most of the people who are reading this will be rolling over the floor :)
cause i have overwritten my bootloader. pretty stupid huh

but at the moment i can start pc with bootdiskette in xp
with those three files on it boot.ini ntdetect.com ntldr

know i want to restor my bootloader i have already formatted c again

and started to try the recovery console
i could already add my xp in the boot ini , but how can i get my bootloader back to what it was
i just want my pc to start up in xp without having to put a diskete like i am doing right now

hope somebody can help me

thnx and hope to have this shitty problem fixed as soon as possible




thnx but i found a solution

i have started an xp install on an other partition, then canncelled it.

started up with my boot diskette , modified my boot ini

and it worked again

because when i started the new installation windows had rewritten my bootloader.
then i just modified the boot.ini to my other partition and then removed the temporary files of the new install wich i did not needed.
