When I copy and paste from the forum I get this:
"C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit -set {ntldr} device partition=C:
The specified command line is not valid.
Run "bcdedit /?" for command line assistance."

Any ideas?
I had this same problem. I had to create an entry in the bootloader first before setting the options. To create the new entry, use bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d "Microsoft Windows XP". I was then able to run the commands in the order specified, though the last command to set the description was redundant as I had set it when creating the new entry.
