2. Install a new drive, install XP there, add your old drive as slave and get your files out.
when the computer is started, it gives the message: ntfs.sys is either missing or corrupted. I has search the forum and have read the doc. Q822800 as suggested. I put in the Windows XP cd, it begin to load but it only load to the blue screen (with no option,just say window setup). I even download the bootable floppy file from Microsoft and try it.... the computer is not reading the diskette (the bios booting order start with the floppy drive)..... I have a lot of files on the hard drive.... can anyone tell me what else to try?
It is a home build system with 2 harddrives: 80GB and 120GB, using Windows XP Professional
P.S. When system starts up, it shows all drives!
