That made me laugh.
As for the question, I think Bruno was saying that he got that error when trying to boot Windoze... if that is the case, then the reason is because when you installed Mandrake LILO took over the MBR. And now that you removed the HD with Mandrake on it... there is no LILO :P. You need to restore the windows boot manager. With XP, its pretty easy: Just boot from the Windows XP CD and somewhere there is a "Repair Installation" option. After it goes through that it should be good as new.
