    With Windows XP recovery console try fixmbr , it repairs the master boot record of the boot disk. The fixmbr command is only available when you are using the Recovery Console.

    You can get the proper syntax here : Fixmbr

    For Windows XP , you need to follow the following steps:
    1. First set your BIOS to boot from CD or DVD drive
    2. Put your Windows XP installation disc into your CD or DVD drive
    3. Boot up your computer and start from CD
    4. With your Windows CD. When asked, choose “repair” and launch fixmbr. This command replaces GRUB with Windows bootloader.
    5. eboot again and you have done.
