3. Select the Windows installation that you want, and then type the administrator password when prompted.
4. Type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER.
5. When the Windows installation is located, the following instructions are displayed:

After Windows XP has successfully loaded, the Boot.ini can be modified to remove the incorrect entry.
