    i've got two hard drives, both with windows XP installed on them. C: is the primary partition, D: is secondary.

    I was mainly using the D: windows, so i formatted the C drive.

    when i rebooted, i got the message that NTLDR could not be found.

    I reinstalled windows on C:... and now can't choose to use windows from the D:

    anyone have any idea how to either move ntldr to the D:, or how to be able to choose between the two partitions again?

    sounds like uve wiped ur mbr. it was probably located on C then points to hd1, partition a, etc.

    just run the recovery mode and type fixmbr.
