    That means your boot sector is corrupted, your HD may be heading south, badIDE cable maybe, could be a virus, maybe just a bad install. Does the HD make any weird "clicking noises"?

    boot with the winXP CD and enter the recovery console (press R at first screen), select your installation (probably 1) and enter your admin password. When you get a command prompt, enter the following:[code:1:a9c93a682f]c:\WINDOWS>[b]fixmbr[/b][/code:1:a9c93a682f] (you may have to do this more than once)
    it sound like you've got a boot virus, and if that^ works then I strongly suggest you run a full (updated) virus scan as soon as you boot into windows.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    you can also try the following command line (worked for me :)) :
    chkdsk /r

    if there is no ticking noise, reseat the cables and if options above fail: reinstall windows
    Tomorrow today will be yesterday.
