    I asked you if it is a hard drive that is permanently attached to your computer or it is a removable media (removable USB hard drive for example)

    Ok . Let's assume it is your permanently attached HD.
    Take your Windows XP CD and boot from it .
    When you begin the installational process , it will detect your current installation . Press the R button to start Repair . Actually , this will load Windows Recovery Console .

    Use fixmbr and fixboot DOS commands to repair the boot sectors. More information about the commands and Windows Recovery Console here.

    When you are ready , use the exit command to quit the Windows Recovery console .

    Hope that helps!
