Default boot problems

to boot xp there are three major files in your system
you must had a boot disket, (not sure what you do if you do not have A Drive)
the files are, boot.ini and NTLDR you have to put them on a bootable Disk in bios change to boot from A and after you have the computer running copy those three files to your root directory'
you can get these files of internet I think
ps works sometimes not all
