Can anyone help me please. I have a desktop pc with 3 hard drives (c-drive and two backups) and recently noticed that a 'Windows' folder appeared on one of the secondary drives when I re-installed Windows XP Pro (different Windows files are present on each drive, no duplicates appear to be in place). When I temporarily disconnect this secondary hard drive, leaving only the C-drive in operation, Windows starts up, but fails to complete, and I am only able to complete a new Windows opening session again by re-connecting this secondary drive, so I'm guessing that somehow my copy of Windows is now spread over two hard drives. I've tried to re-install Windows again after changing the BIOS settings to enable the CD ROM drive to be the first priority device (followed by the hard drive), but although the 'Boot from CD' and 'press any key to boot from CD' messages appear during Start up, the keyboard is unresponsive during this process (it works ok when Windows has fully opened up and I open Word, Excel etc) and Windows opens up as usual without my having to hit any keys. Consequently I am unable to re-install Windows outside of the Windows program as the Install CD is ignored during Start up (the ROM drives whirls away during the Start up process though). Finally, I reformatted my third drive, disconnected the other two and tried to install XP on this drive, but get an 'ntldr file missing' error message so am unable to install XP on this blank hard drive.
