I'm not sure what you mean. But Windows installation disks have all required software to start and proceed with installation or any other activity.

If you told the installer to use the entire hard drive, Windows will be erased. If you told it to resize the partitions on the disk, Windows should still be bootable from the GRUB boot menu. If the installer was interrupted before GRUB could be installed, Windows is probably still intact, but lacks any boot loader to launch it. Reinstall Linux to fix the problem.

I had the exact same problem with my own computer. Apparently, Windows 7 doesn't work that well with Windows XP's boot loader (when dual booting). I solved the problem (well...sort of) by booting into my Windows 7 partition, Installing EasyBCD (http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1) and adding Windows XP to the boot loader again. The only thing is that when ever I boot into Xp (which is rare now) and then shut down, the Windows 7 boot loader is erased an I have to recover the computer with the Install DVD.The Windows Boot Loader begin erased may or may not happen to you, but it mayBest of luck with it,~Dex1010

By partitioning space for Linux and installing it there, and usually let Linux install its own bootloader. Don't worry, virtually every Linux distribution's bootloader can find Windows fine, but Windows' boot loader won't go the other way.

If you're talking about modloader, Find modloader's download button, and download it. Wait for the download to finish, and you have downloaded it. As for installing it, that's a completely different topic. Usually following the instructions on the page will help.

NTLDR is the "Nt Loader". Since Windows XP is built on the Windows NT kernel, the NT Loader is necessary for Windows to boot.The easiest way to repair this is to boot from your Windows XP CD, then take the SECOND "R" option. The first "R" will be "Attempt to repair windows using the recovery console" That is not the one that you want. Continue as if you were going to reinstall windows. Then, the XP setup will say "Searching your hard drive for previous Windows installations", and should find C:\Windows\. Select "R" to Repair at that point.Note: You will need to do all of your windows updates again once you have done a repair of windows.

I cannot tell you which SHOULD come first. In my case, I installed XP first, and Vista second - because following Vista with an XP installation destroys the boot loader. XP will not detect Vista or offer a dualboot option. Similarly, following this dual boot with a Linux installation will install a 'lilo' or 'grub'. Grub is becoming the most popular boot loader, and installing it last will ensure that you can boot all of the current operating systems. Grub is extremely user friendly, and can be modified simply by editing the text file.

You are required to use a boot loader to run two or more Operating Systems. You have to use it to get a screen with a list of available options to boot into different Operating Systems. Some good examples are- Windows Loader, Grub or Grub4DOS.

The boot loader of any operating system is usually written in assembly, and it is true in the case of Windows as well. The rest of the Windows O.S is written in C++ using Win32 API.
