It would be easier...if you tell us the exact steps you took to make it.

Or provide a link that summarizes the steps you took.

i fist made a win xp pro cd off of bittorent i then burned those files to a dvd so i would have a start up cd. my computer was turning on then shutting off ass soon as it booted. so then i went in and repartitioned the hard drive so theres nothing on it. i went into the bios and changed it to run from cd. when i did that it never ran the windows cd and insted it came up as a NTLDR error if im correct. i dont know if i can redownload a windows xp program on my other computer and burn it some how to make it a startup cd
