My girlfriend has a compaq presario 5000 with the following specs:
Win XP Pro
AMD Duron 800MHz
384MB RAM (PC100)
She resently got a virus cos her subsrciption run out. Before I could do anything about it for her, the system won't boot at all. So I took out her HD and and mouted it as a slave on my system and backed up her files onto mine and formatted her drive. Then I proceeded to install Win XP Pro for her on my system. But now the system does recognize her HD I've tried different HD and IDE cables but the BIOS couldn't recognize her HD. With some other HDs I get an "NTLDR missing, cannot find NTLDR". I suspect a CIH virus might have altered the BIOS but either ways I'll really appreciate any help I get. Please ask if more info is needed.
