But there is another reason for that failure which is a BIOS setting. Since I missed if this machine has a SATA HDD and no make or model I can't offer much. Try revealing more and keep in mind there must be a million posts on that error alone. Makes you wonder how Microsoft got a pass from so many.
can anyone out there help me I've had two laptops lose the ntldr file just by turning them on. Using windows xp the laptop I'm working now is not even mine, I installed the windows xp it worked fine I installed a Wi-Fi adapter so I download the drivers, I restarted it and I got a NTLDR file is missing. what interesting is that it won't recognized the cd not even using a external dvd/cd drive.
please help. thanks
