I was workin on the PC once and the computer suddenly stopped responding. The blue screen then appeared. This happened various times and after a while I decided to install a new copy of Windows XP on the hard drive (it's partitioned into a C:\ and a D:\).
I went to the menu, deleted the c:\ partition and started to install a new copy of XP. I started deleting the files, then formatting, and the install screen came up asking for the serial number, etc. This is where the blue screen appeared again. I checked the paramters for this on the Internet and it said that there was something wrong with the hardware.
After this happened I restarted the computer and the following message appeared-
- Boot from ATAPI: Enter CD
CD BOOT:DISK FAILURE: ntldr not found.
Can someone please help me with this?
