Windows XP boot Problem

Postby addyreg » Fri Apr 01, 2011 10:17 am

I deleted the partition with Suse linux(using Windows XP Disk ManagmentUI) and grub is also deleted. I actually wanted to install vmware. after I deleted the partition, I restarted my system. Now its not at all booting . instead I see the message, "DISK BOOT FAILURE - INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER".
I tried fixmbr, fixboot, bootcfg /rebuild on recovery console. no use. It always shows the below screen,
and always tries to boot from CD/DVD. I googled a lot. no clear solution.

Please help as I donot want to re-install XP
