    you dont need to reinstall windows.first try to repair the boot sector.Put your windows xp disc in drive.set to boot from disc.after it loads you will get a choice to install,repair or repair when the black screen with a c promtp type help and list of option will come up select the one for fixing boot up.not sure of the wording.I just had a problem like that after partioning the drive.XP would not boot so I fixed it in repair console.If that does not work foor you just boot from the dics again and reinstall XP from there.Hope this helps.
