NTLDR is hosed...
To resolve this issue, replace the NTLDR file by using the Windows Recovery Console:
1. Restart your computer by using either the Windows CD-ROM or Windows Setup floppy disks.
2. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to repair the Windows installation.
3. Press C to repair the Windows installation by using the Recovery Console.
4. Type the number of the Windows installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
5. Type the administrator password, and then press ENTER.
NOTE: The Recovery Console uses the administrator password that you provided when you installed Windows. Changes that you made to the administrator password after you installed Windows do not apply to the Recovery Console.

7. Type cd .., and then press ENTER.
8. Type ren ntldr ntldr.old, and then press ENTER.
