    Dave,

    Good day!

    I tried your 2nd suggestion and it works for me. I just transferred the new cd rom and connected it to the IDE next to hard drive. After booting cdrom boot already appeared. But i got a new problem the cmos check sum failed and even the memory test failed, and the battery failed. When i press enter to install the SET UP it went to blue screen telling that the PC was corrupted. it needs to shut down. after the reboot same problem occurred. When i disabled the catching and shadowing in the BIOS setup the cd installer now runs and right now am waiting for the completion of the installation process. The pc just runs so slow because the memory available is only 256 MB.

    Thank you for the wise suggestions.

    Sincerely yours,

    Jonags ( jonags3@mail.com)

Jonags,

NTLDR is the NT Loader basically the instructions the bios needs to start your Operating system.
If it is not finding the NTLDR it could be due to a couple of things.

First thing I'd do is to check that the install disc is a full install disc for the OS and not an Upgrade disc.

If it IS a full OS disc then we need to enter the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> during boot up. Once in the BIOS there should be an option for "Boot order" we need to set it so that your optical drive (CD/DVD) is listed as the 1st entry in the boot order. press <F10> to save and exit. Put the CD/DVD in your drive and boot up your computer.

this should get you started with your installation.
If it does not, you likely have a faulty optical drive.
Please post your results so we can further assist you.

Thanks
Dave

Installed a ASUS A8N5X motherboard and it go through bios and stops and then it tells me that NTLDR is missing . How do I fix this Thank you.


How to solve NTLDR is missing in windows XP issue
Using Windows recovery console. The Windows 2000 and Windows XP CDs supplied by Microsoft has a tool called the Recovery Console which can be used to repair errors that prevent Windows XP from starting using the command line. OEM versions of Windows XP, including computers that were supplied with Windows XP preinstalled, may not have this utility. This problem may occur if the basic input/output system (BIOS) on your computer is outdated, or if one or more of the following Windows boot files are missing or damaged: Ntldr
Ntdetect.com
Boot.ini
Check your drives for floppy,USB storage devices,CDs and any other bootable media.Because sometmes these things makes problems.Then go to BIOS and do the BIOS settings to boot from the source where the OS is installed. 1: Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer. 2: When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
3: Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
4: Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key(most of the cases it will be "1" only) and pressing enter.
5: You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. 6: From the command prompt, copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the i386 folder of the CD to the root folder of the hard drive. In the example commands given below, C: is the hard drive and D: is the CD-ROM drive. You will need to change the drive letters if appropriate:
COPY D:I386NTLDR C:
COPY D:I386NTDETECT.COM C:

Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

Ibm x series 226 attempt to install os and says no harddrive


Make sure that the motherboard and/or disk controller recognize the drives during POST.

Then check and see if IBM has a server installation CD-ROM that you can use boot the server and automatically load the correct drivers to prep for the OS install. I have downloaded installation CD ISO files from HP and Dell that walked me right through the OS install.

Another important consideration is that servers frequently use disk controllers that are not included in the operating system's driver files.
For example, when installing Windows OS on a RAID controller you must press F6 immediately after the installation CD-ROM starts up.
Later in the installation you will be prompted to insert a 1.44 diskette with the driver for your RAID controller.

The only challenge is to find the correct version of the driver and get it on a diskette.

I hope this helps.

Unable to reinstall windows xp


try it again with the bootable floppy disk... if you have the option use fdisk /mbr and then format the computer and reinstall using the cd you have. the fdisk /mbr command will get rid of any virus residing in your master boot record.

Ntldr error on ibm intellistation z pro w/ xp pro


During the XP install, you will be given the chance to set up partitions on the drive. Blow them all out. Completely. Then recreate the partition and let XP install. I expect this will solve the nt loader issue. If, however, it does not, then use the recovery approach below to get the required loader files onto your boot partition.

  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "d." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy d:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

  7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

Boot problem the memory are in good condition even the video card


It is important to install the original drivers form the cd or form the website of the motherboard.

But i think you were trying to say that the os is not booting.
Check the following:

All IDE drivers on each cabels are jumpered correctly.
ex: harddisk is master and optical drive is slave.
If they are both master or slave it could do some IO conflict.
Your hard drive (that you are about to install the operatning sytem on) does not contain bad sectors.
If this occours you can see blue screens too.

check that the processor's fan holder isn't damaged , the problem can be coused by an incorrectly installed fan on the socket, usually done by overheating.

Hope this helps.
Oh and don't forget:
This motherboard only supports Celeron processors form 400 mhz and Pentium 4 from 533 mhz, it means Celeron D and pentium D can not be used.

Maximum installable memory with correct operation : 1gb do not mix the ram ferqencies. so don't use 266mhz ram with 400 mhz and so aon...
