Would it be a good idea to give directions to achieve this if the OP doesn't have a retail CD only a recovery one and is not able to use the Recovery Console.
I would suggest following douglas martin's suggestions for using the Recovery Console, but at step 6 enter the following 2 commands:
Press Enter after typing each one - and when it asks if you're sure, answer Y for yes (and press Enter again)
fixmbr will fix the Master Boot Record on your hard drive. That's the section that points the operating system to the boot sector. fixboot will repair the partition table for the boot sector of your hard drive, allowing it to find files needed for booting and is the most common reason for NTLDR errors.
Another possibility is a corrupt boot.ini file. You can rebuild this by using the following command in the Recovery Console:
When typing this you'll be presented with theopportunity to rename your Windows installation - label it something distinctive so you can recognize it as the rebuilt version (I usually use "XP BootCfg" (without the quotes).
