My problem started after I was trying to reboot my computer and then something that I've never seen just popped up
:) :)
ntldr missing
press ctrl+alt+del to restart

I was doing some research online and used the windows xp install disc "r" recovery idea
that didn't work

I try to do a reinstall of window xp; that didn't work, it stated that I have no drive in the box

Also, I try going into "safe mode" but that idea didn't work either.

If anybody got an idea of whats wrong with my computer let me know.

Put windows cd in your drive and type this command
COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C:
COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:
here X is whatever your CD-Rom drive is and C signifies your windows drive

Do tell me how did it go.

That was the first thing that I try to do, and I had no luck with it.

"COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C:
COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:
here X is whatever your CD-Rom drive is and C signifies your windows drive"

It gave me "can no find files in floppy or CD drive" phase.

Well can post the exact error message if it is possible. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
I think there might be something wrong with the path of the rom.

Well i checked this link out . I don't know if this would be useful to you as you might have tried this as well.
Just tell me one thing, Is your Win XP cd a bootable one. If so it's fine otherwise go to the cmos setup by pressing del when your pc boots and select your first boot device as your CD-Rom drive.

Thanks for the help, I don't believe I've read this article before but, I just finish reading it and it looks promising.

I'll let you know if it works or not, thanks again.
