Booting fails because ntldr is missing on Win 2k machine. Booting from Acronis or Ghost cannot find any HDDs to image. Booting from Win 2K disk to repair cannot find a "C" drive. I have just managed to boot normally and am frantically doing a back up (of both my hdds "C" & "D" before I loose them again......whats going on ? Why are my drives coming and going? Anybody got any ideas please? Once these backups are complete I can do a full re install but I am just curious.......Cheers.
