I am at the end of my rope with my computer. Between work, buying a new place, trying to get a mortgage, and this.. I think I am going to have a heart attack. ( and I am turning 26 today ) I'll try to keep this brief and to the point. Configuration: Asus A7V-266E most recent bios revision (1011 I believe) 512 megs PC2700 DDR 333mhz AMD XP1900+ ATI Radeon 8500 64MB 80 GIG WD 7200rpm IDE hard disk ( Storage drive ) Adaptec stand alone RAID controller card - Two WD 40gig 7200 RPM IDE hard drives in a RAID 0 configuration CDRW drive Windows XP professional Ok. So I had installed windows ontop of windows 2 or 3 times. Windows started becoming fruity on me. Freezing ALL the time. I bought a new HD so that I wouldnt loose all the files I wanted to keep. Installed that. No problem. Began copying files over. Windows freezes. and dies. kaput. no booting. Re-installed windows on top of windows again. Didnt want to loose my data. worked fine. Copied all files over to new storage drive without issue. With that done I wanted to re-format the RAID array and install windows on a clean slate. went through my 6 setup disks. formatted the raid Array. completed initial setup and copying of files from CD. Computer reboots Upon completeion of BIOS load... "Missing file NTLDR" press any key to reboot. great. Boot sector is fux0r3d. Go into Raid array config. delete array. re-create array, select boot drive, blah blah.. done. try again. this time after intial setup and reboot, BIOS finishes. Screen goes blank with the exception of one line. " Press any key to reboot" press a key, it reboots, and repeats the cycle. I went into the setup again, and chose repair instead of install. I tried fixing the MBR. ( command FIXMBR ) Same results. The only thing I have not tried yet was another command FIXBOOT. which I guess is my last resort. After that I will have to install windows onto my storage drive. which I really don't want to do. I'm at work now, so I can't try anything yet. But seriously. If someone can tell me what to do here I will pay them. whatever is fair. 20 bucks? make me an offer. I am just at the end of my rope here and I can't deal with another problem.
