SOURCE: start up mode

It may be a corrupt MBR, or possibly the boot partition. If you have an XP disk, try to get into the recovery console.

  1. Restart your computer with the Windows XP Setup disk in the CDROM drive.
  2. If you are prompted to press a key to start the computer from CDROM, do so quickly. Otherwise it may try to boot from the hard drive.
  3. After a few minutes, you'll see a prompt to press the R key to start the Recovery Console.
  4. When Recovery Console starts, it will prompt you to enter a number corresponding to the Windows XP installation that you need to repair. In most cases, you'll enter "1" (which will be the only choice). If you press ENTER without typing a number, Recovery Console will quit and restart your computer.
  5. Enter your Administrator password (if you have one) If you don't enter the correct password, you cannot continue.
  6. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type fixmbr and then verify that you want to proceed.
If that doesn't work, try the above procedure again, but substitute "fixmbr" with "fixboot". Good luck!

The Last Known Good Configuration feature restores registry information and driver settings that were in effect the last time the computer started successfully.
