    Ran into a little problem

    Installed new HD. Booted from CD and installed XP pro.

    Bunch of proggies were missing and ATI drivers were being a pain.

    I reformated using NTFS format with another computer.

    Resinstalled the drive and booted computer up. Says "NTLDR is missing"

    And that's all it doing right now. Reboots don't help. :o

    anyone know what I should do now? :dunno:

    tia!

    You managed to format your boot drive using NTFS and with it, the boot loader. So you've done something wrong but I don't know what you are trying to do. What I suggest you do is simply reinstall XP from scratch, clean install.

    Yea, I'd reinstall... I've gotten the NTLDR error before, but that was because I deleted it and since I have Linux I just re-copied it onto the drive from the CD.
