ok guys heres the deal. i have an HP 8565c with the Award BIOS. its running Win2k. i have the bios update for the system, problem is i cant flash it. i the directions HP gives says to create a system disk floppy, and copy the BIOS update onto that disk. boot the comp with the system disk and flash the BIOS. problem is the only way I KNOW of the create a system disk in WIN2k is to use the back-up utility to create one. well i did all this and when the comp tried to boot, i got the nasty message NTLDR is missing. this is a brand new HDD, with a VERY fresh install of WIN2k. can someone help me out???
