I've reinstalled the NBR too.
You took out the primary drive. Windows is dumb like this. It installs the nesscary boot files to only ONE of the drives most of the time, meaning NTDLR was on a different hard drive. Unplug the other hard drives and from the windows XP recovery console run FIXBOOT. Should fix the problem.
If you are dual booting windows on a modern computer, I just recommend using the "select boot device" that you can usually access by pressing esc, f11 or f12 on booting.
