Try doing a search for it on google. Just did one myself. Not sure which link might apply for your situation but you might find something.
Use your Windows XP/2000 CD depending what OS you have and boot into the recovery console.
Once there type fixmbr <ENTER>
Type exit to reboot, see if that does it.

win2k , thanks ill try it and let your know .... how does something like this usually happen ? i resently formatted a backup hd to ntfs on my comp , would that be it ?

nothings wotking i formatted and decided to go fresh and i get bsod'ed in setup !!! "session5 failed"
Sounds like a hardware issue. Could be your hard drive is dying. Try a different HD if you have one.

i fixed the bsod error , it was caused by a crappy cdrom :D , i formatted the raid and started fresh , i think the problem migh be a too high fsb ; is 37mhz really too fast for the pci bus ???

there is a sytem file in your root drive called NTDLR (you have to unhide system files to see it) If Windows can't find it or read it it won't boot. Just some info on it :)

I am running two IBM Deathstars in Raid 0 (gambling is fun...hehe). Anyway, last summer I had an issue where one day I turned on the computer and I heard the nice click/grind of a Deathstar in its final throes... It would start to boot WinXP and then reboot. Managed to find out the NTOSKRNL.exe was corrupted. Went over to a friend's house, burned his NTOSKRNL.exe file to a cd, came back to my house, went into recovery console and deleted the file then told it to copy the file from the cd to the original destination. Next boot, voila, problem fixed, still running strong 6 months later. I win this round....I'm willing to bet IBM wins the next :(

I worked on a computer for sombody last week that was trying to upgrade to XP that had the same problem.
I also found it was a problem with the Cdrom.
Well actually he had set his master/slave jumpers backwards in relationship to the connector on the cable. After I corrected that I still had a similar problem. So I installed a spare Cdrom and everything loaded nicely.
