Question about PC Desktops
You're in a real dilemma without an XP CD (it doesn't have to be yours). What you need to do is to repair the installation. I'm assuming you intentionally compressed your hard drive.
What you need to do is to boot to the CD and then, when prompted, press "R" to recover you build. It will take you to a shelled DOS prompt. From there run CHKDSK on your boot drive and it should see the compressed NTLDR and fix it.
