Total boot fail - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
okay.
we replaced the ram with my OCZ and it booted to the Monitor.
we got a message on screeen " NTLDR is missing press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"
tried rebooting, restarting but no change.
what is NTLDR ?

out of curiosity i put the other Ram in my main rig, and it booted fine, i am actually using it now.

Try this out.

If there is nothing important on your HDD, you can reformat and repartition it then reinstall Windows too.

absolutelt no joy, we can get into bios, but it seems that we are stuck there.
tried a few different os disks, but still no joy.
do we need a floppy boot disk?
can we make one from the system that's running?
would it work?

if you have a FDD try it. that way you should be able to run fdisk. If you want to, we could chat on it (see profile. M_S_N prefered). Good luck.

I would put the windows CD in and do a repair first rather than full reformat that should replace any missing files

HDD is formatted, nothing boots up, so we can't install anything to anything.
all we get is the boot sequence page, and the safe mode option page, then it goes around in a loop.

all sorted, thanks to Scorpion_WR, reps for you m8.
it turned out that the ram wouldn't have it at 1st (?), but that was a red herring.
the slave HDD assumed a master role at one point, and nearly installed window on my main HDD, so we thought and panicked,lol, but the main Hdd was unplugged,lol.
anyway, after lots of to-ing and fro-ing, I got the boot sequence sorted out, the HDD auto detect correctly figured, the HDD on the correct ribbon block (black) and the only bootable copy of XP (out of a pile).
all in all it took about 9hrs to get it done. i actually finished at about 06:30 am.
thanks to Scorpion_wr for staying with me on MSN for a few hours to guide me through fdisk etc, cheers m8.
