after installing the new HD i booted computer up and get the NTLDR is missing press cntrl+alt+delete to reboot and get same message
i followed direction
geeksquad wants 80 bucks to tell me the fix.
MicroSoft support gives links to remedies that assume the computer has internet access and can download files
manufacturer has same remedies as microsoft
im no computer technical guru
but this is like learning brain surgery at home
is it too much to assume a laymen like myself has to have a masters degree in computer engineering to just put in a new hard drive without losing hair or sleep over ?
so...on to what i have attempted to fix this issue
several websites and message boards say to make a copy of some specific files to a XP start up floppy disc from a windows OS cd rom supplied by the manufacturer....ok correct me if im wrong...but other then the system restore disc supplied....most computers DO NOT come with an OS cd-rom..
so directions say put jumper in the cable default location....looked at jumper location and IT IS in the cable default location...
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this NTLDR error ? ?
and does fat32 or NTFS have a specific way to partition a new hd for ntfs or fat32 and if so what does my computer have ntfs or fat 32 ? oh and by the way HD says its formatted.....
Please help....this shouldnt be that hard...and please do not reply with a link to another website with a remedy i guarentee ive already seen it and they are just as vague and assumin as microsoft is !
