hi team - sorry for the classic first-time-post-pleading-for-help action, but i need some help! after months of slowly increasing bloat and many BSOD crashes, i decided to re-install windows xp clean. So i formatted my second hd, inserted the windows dvd and opted for a clean install. unfortunately after formatting 99% of my main hd, alas, my computer crashhes again and i'm back to my old friend the BSOD. So I reboot. Now all I get is an 'NTLDR is missing' error message. With the boot DVD in the drive. I have fiddled with the BIOS and made sure that it's set to boot from the DVD drive. No joy. The only progress i've made is to make a floppy boot disk, which it does detect, and gets me past the error. However once in i can't cd to any other drives than A: - which is weird, because when i start up primary and master slave drives all seem to be detected. Anyway, some help would be massively appreciated. I'm afraid good karma'll be your only reward though!
