This is the message when I want to boot from grub into Windows XP.

What did I do?:

Unplugged my Ubuntu drive.

Reinstalled WinXP on my Windows Drive. > Windows runs normal

Plug in my Ubuntu drive again and reinstate grub again.

Ubunutu runs from grub - Windows gives me above error.

Any ideas...this is really a problem.
Even when I unplug my Ubuntu drive again I cannot boot into WinXP.

please help
