Asus P5W-DH Bios 1506 HELP! =(

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well I was about to go and download the 1503 Bios to check it out and see how its working and then I noticted that Bios 1506 was out today so I reflashed to that. To my dismay the computer loaded up and had a NTLDR Missing error on the boot and I can't boot into windows. I reflashed back to 1407 and still have the same error. I used the EZ Flash in the bios to reflash my computer. I tried adjusting the settings in the bios to load the computer but it's still not booting up, last resort would be to reflash the entire operating system. I'm using Media Center for anybody information.

Error is Missing NTLDR
Ctrl-Alt-Del to Restart

I also looked online using a friends computer to try and trouble shoot the error myself I followed a few steps in the windows XP boot disk hitting "R" to type in repair commands and re-copy files.

These were some of the instructions I followed attempting to fix this missing NTLDR.

Windows XP users

1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter "E". This letter may be different on your computer.

copy e:\\i386\
tldr c:\\
copy e:\\i386\
tdetect.com c:\\

7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.


Once again I was stumped and still can't figure out what to do. I'm currently running chkdsk /r on my computer trying to attempt the Windows Recovery Console.

Any ideas to what the problem could be? Computer was running perfectly fine before. Word of advise, don't jump on Bios 1506 just yet

1506 is in BETA, go back to the later version.

I've heard of people not being able to boot on the beta bios.

How come on Asus' website they don't have it labeled as a BETA version . I've already reflashed my whole computer cause of it... I reflashed to the later version, still wouldnt boot and then just reflashed the whole computer under 1506 and it seems to be working so far... it was unreversible the error that came up from 1407 to 1506.. pain in the ass.
