I'm actually pretty efficient with computers. Below is what's in my boot.ini The issue is my install in the "\windows" is corrupt. When I boot up my system with the WinXP CD and try to to a repair install, only the "\XPPRO" install is showing up for me as an option to repair.
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
