I am running two SATA drives in Windows XP Pro, and recently when I boot I get NTLDR is missing, press CNTL+ALT+DELETE to restart.
I was hoping I could just boot with my Windows XP CD, Press R for Repair at the first screen, then copy the NTLDR file over. However, when I try to copy the file, it tells me "Access Is Denied" Does this have anything to do with not logging on as Administrator when the C:Prompt comes up? I vaguely remember having to log on as Admin with no password on my older pc.
Anyway, is there a way to get Access to copy these files over? If I am not able to, what are my other options? I can't boot up in any mode, it goes to this black screen everytime.
One other thing, when I type copy c:\i386\ntldr it says "Access is Denied" as well, but wouldn't that mean the file is already located in this directory and Windows isn't finding it?
Thank you for any and all help!
