Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Then type the following commands:

cd c:\
attrib -c ntldr
exit

"Click" is perhaps a poor choice of word. You will need to set your computer to boot from the CD. Often, a message is displayed telling you to press a certain key to choose your boot device.

Can you tell us the make and model of your computer? We may be able to tell you precisely what key(s) to press to do this (as it's not the same for different models and manufacturers)

I think you need to press F10 to get to the boot menu and then choose to boot from the CD.

Lets try a different disk. You can create your own Recovery Console disk with this file:

http://www.thecomputerparamedic.com/files/rc.iso

You must burn this file to a CD as an ISO. Post back if you need more information on how to do this.

Download and install the freeware version of DeepBurner.

http://www.deepburner.com/

When you first start the program select "Burn ISO Image". Select the Image File as the RC.iso. Insert a blank CD and click Burn.

You click the button marked "..." on the right hand side under Image file.
