Ok ive a DFI 790FX M2RS..good mobo but it has a problem. I always get a "NTDLR File Missing" error. Ive used multiple hard drives and windows installed but after windows finishes installing and it boots for the first time its fine, but any restart after that i get the error. Also its out of RMA now so what options do i have, could this problem be fixed with a simple solution like a bios update or something?? Thanks.

1st, double check that your BIOS is has the boot priority of the drives setup correctly. i've had it where mine will set another drive as the default boot up drive after i setup my RAID controller.

second... try NOT overclocking the system and see if any problems arise.

NTDLR File Missingis a boot file. did u add any ne hds after the reformat?
try running a repiar install or repiar manually.
Try this:

Boot with your XP CD in the cd drive. Select 'To repair..' by pressing 'R'.
When in the Recovery Console type the following:

"copy X:\\i386\
tldr C:\\" - without the quotes.

Where X is the letter of your CD drive and C is the letter of your system
drive. Take the XP CD out of the cd drive and reboot into XP normally.

No its at stock and bios has the drive as 1st boot priority

Check out THIS tutorial on how to fix it.

Thank you VERY much for that, even if it doesnt fix this problem, it will definitely come in handy later on!

Nope, have not added any hard drives or anything, also its a vista install.

Excuse my ignorance, but it doesn't boot at all? If not, just pop in the Vista disc and repair your OS and reboot. It's worth a shot, eh?

Is this Vista 64-Bit we're talking about here?

Enable ACPI XSDT Table in your BIOS under the Power Setting tabs. That enables you to use 64-Bit Operating systems.

Good luck.
