If at all possible, make a backup.. This problem normally happens if the C drive is accidentally (or intentionally to save space) compressed..

Boot to an XP CD
Select "R" to repair
You will be a black CMD screen
type: 'fixmbr' and then press enter (without 's)
type: 'fixboot' and then press enter (without 's)
remove the XP CD and type in exit to reboot
