  1. Had a computer with WMillenium and W2000.
    Tried to formatt it but had problems because cd driver isn´t recognized, so wasn't able to start from CD (setup Bios only allows floppy and hard disk).
    So now windows doesn't start - error 'file NTLDR is missing'
    Tried to make a boot disk with files NTLDR+NTDETECT+boot.ini but now it appears message 'file NTDETECT is missing'
    What to do???

    still can't

    I've downloaded boot disk from the site you've mentioned for W2000
    It appeared error: disk error I/O (or something like this)
    I then tried with a boot disk for WMillennium, and it reads the disk, but still doesn't boot. It stays on A:/ wainting for a command.

    And why doesn't it boot from CD -why doesn't it appear on BIOS - can I fix this instead?
