ntldr missing, but it is not

Posted: 01-31-2009, 01:29 AM
dual boot system with windows xp media edition and vista
system was partitioned with partition magic 8 prior to vista install
I download sound drivers which crashed vista and only had xp working
I managed to crash the xp side,,,sigh
I ended up reinstalling the vista side .
I would like to be ab le to access xp again without a reinstall
I have read that I need ntldr and ntdetect.com on a boot ini disk.
I can see the windows xp files and they seem to be there already.
Windows recovery did not work as it would not accept a blank administrator
password
I have tried googling for help, but have not had anything work so far.

Any and all suggestions welcome. If I don't understand how to proceed with
replies, I will respond with questions.

Thanks
