Look in disk management for a small partition thats the active partition. Give this partition a letter and try to start EasyBCD again.
sorry for the late reply, managed to boot in windows 7 using the recovery disc, tried to add xp and let it auto configure.
windows 7 working and cant boot to xp with missing NTLDR error

Is ntldr present on C: (you'll need to enable viewing of hidden and protected OS files in folder options)?
