How Do I Make A Windows Xp Partiton Bootable? in Operating Systems Posted June 5, 2004 OHHH YESSSSS!!!!!!!! I FIXED IT!!!!! Went into the XP Repair console thing from the XP Pro CD and did a dir on I:, NTLDR or NTDETECT.COM did not appear to be there so the first time i tried to copy them from the CD it must not have worked, so I copied them over again, did a 'fixboot' and 'fixmbr' just to be sure and when I rebooted, BINGO, straight into XP Pro! Thanks for your advice guys!!
