Because i have a external CD drive i had to install WINXP from DOS.After formatting with FAT32 and partitioning the HDD,copied the I386 to C:\ and run smartdrv then setup(winnt.exe),WINXP copied all the files to the systemroot and asked to remove the floppy((everything seems fine)). after the boot up i got this message NTLDR is missing>>. I have tried recovery console but no chance for repair. plz help
i wanted to mention this it might clear some points. i have moved the HDD as it is to an other computer and booted it and workes well,i got the setup screen in which i can choose the setup or repair!!!!!!!i find it weird. is there any relation between BIOS and NTLDR?? thanks
the boot.ini,ntldr,ntdetect.com files are all in the systemroot.the boot.ini is the same as above and still cant find it. what is doing my head it is the fact that how could same HDD works on one computer and doesnt work on other.
