I'm using Grub as a boot loader. My PC is a dual boot between Fedora Core 3 and Windows XP Professional. Windows is slave.
Anyway, Grub claims it doesn't know what format the drive is in, and keeps going, then says NTLDR not found. Last time I upgraded my Motherboard, I got a GPF, and was told to just use my recovery CD. Everything worked out pretty cleanly. My Recovery CD is for a DELL. My computer isn't a DELL anymore. That CD won't even load anymore. It stops after 'detecting device settings' and just black screens.
So, after about a week of fighting with it, I decide to go back to the old motherboard. It wasn't in a sense of giving up, I just really wanted to play San Andreas again. I hook everything back up, outside the case. This is where I am now. I got the SAME ERROR.
What I get out of this is that I've got a problem with the hard drive, or a problem with the hard drive cable. Am I really off? Anyone have any ideas? It's probably something really obvious.
Any help is appreciated.
