Yea positive. The Ribbon cable worked in a different computer. The BIOS is recognizing everything i attach. It also for some reason is detecting a floppy drive although i dont have one hooked up. I dont even have a cable going to the floppy port on the board

When I try to boot from Windows XP Pro cd it dosent even give the option to boot from CD. It just completely skips reading the CD and gives me the NTLDR is missing error. I have checked BIOS many times and I have CD-Rom 1st in the boot priority

the NTLDR error means that windows can not be found. If you are getting this error, that means it is trying to boot off a drive without windows installed on it.

Maybe try resetting your cmos, since everything else seems to work. Maybe there is something wrong with your cd drive. Are you sure it is being detected?
