I just bought a new motherboard (biostar p4m800) and powersupply for my comp and hooked everything up. I have an intel celeron 2.8 processor and a lg dvd-rw and cd-rom. Now when it goes to start its asking to boot from a cd but when i but the cd in that came with the mobo it just gives me a faliure. How do i fix this and what is going on?

While I do a little research, go ahead and make sure you have all cables plugged in correctly and efficiently. And what OS disc are you trying to boot from?

So when your computer boots, are you even prompted to boot from the CD before receiving this NTLDR Missing error?

I'm sorry to leave you hanging, but I have to take some support calls and won't be able to get back with you until a little bit later on. If anyone else is looking on here, please feel free to chime in.
