Boot your PC with the Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM tray and follow the install process, when you asked to repair, select "no repair" and "Leave partition as is".
When the process finishes, go to "my computer" properties, click on the tab "Advanced", then on "Boot and recovery" button and unmark "show OS list"
