You can use FDISK to remove the bootloader

FDISK /mbr

If you use fdisk /mbr and if the windows partition is set active, the you can be sure that it is going to boot Smilie

i assume you mean you wish windows to remain?
re-run the widnows install disk, and retain your existing files.
a preparatory Back-Up is highly recommended.
windows 'should' pre-empt all data and overwrite the MBR.

Start fdisk from your ms-dos boot disk and you'll see. It's very simple...
