Get an external USB enclosure like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817121006
Then use a drive copying utility to copy the drive contents over. You should be able to find this utility at the drive maker's site. And you'll be able to use the enclosure to access the old drive later.

WHAT IS .NTLDR .WIN XP HOME


NTLDR is the file that loads the OS. (It expands to NT Loader - all versions of Windows from WIN NT (Win2K) through XP used this file.) The message could indicate the ntdetect.com is damaged.

First make sure that you do not have a non-boot disc in the floppy or CD drive. Similarly, if your computer can boot from a USB device, unplug flash drives or other USB drives. Make sure that your boot device order is accurate (your C: drive should be first) in the BIOS. (Accessing the BIOS depends on your computer, often you need to repeatedly press F1, Esc, Del, or F10 after turning on the computer. There should be a screen that shows you the correct key.) While you are in the BIOS, make sure that your hard drive is recognized by the machine. If your hard drive isn't recognized, try replacing the data cable with a new cable and switching power connection cable with another from the power supply.

If the hard drive is present, the first solution is to get a bootable CD and copy the files back to your C: drive. You can use a Windows XP install or upgrade disk. For this type of source. Boot to the CD (press any key) and then enter the Repair option (R). Choose your Windows installation and enter your administrator password. Then copy i386ntldr and i386ntdetect.com from the CD (D: or E: drive) to the C: drive. (for example: type "copy d:i386ntldr c:" without the quotes )

The boot information (MBR) could be damaged. In that case, the you'll need the Windows CD to run fixboot and fixmbr from the Recovery Console.

If the above doesn't work, you should try a new hard drive and copy the files to it. Make sure that you format the drive to create a bootable disc. (Use a bootable diskette, if needed.)

I hope this helps.

Dell xps wont boot from dvd just cd


Sounds like you have only a CD drive. To boot DVDs you need to have a DVD drive installed. The computer probably came with a CD drive because Win XP came on a CD.

Windows xp boot disk


Note: The Microsoft Windows XP CD is a bootable CD and in many cases you should not need a bootable floppy diskette. Booting from the Windows XP CD will allow you to not only install/re-install Windows XP but will also allow you to troubleshoot it.

Create MS-DOS bootable diskette

When formatting a floppy diskette, users have the option of creating a MS-DOS startup disk, follow the below steps to do this.

1. Place diskette in the computer.

2. Open My Computer, right-click the A: drive and click Format.

3. In the Format window, check Create an MS-DOS startup disk.

4. Click Start

Create Windows XP Setup diskettes

Microsoft is beginning to phase out bootable floppy diskettes in favor of bootable CD discs and has not included a method of easily creating a bootable floppy diskette in Windows XP or from the CD. However, Microsoft has downloads available for users who still need to create bootable diskettes to install (not upgrade) Windows XP. These downloads can be found through KB310994.


hope this helps

HP 520 Notebook. Shuts down before installing new OS.


I agree a clean install is always the better, fresh start J
OK it sounds like missing drivers, what you have to do is create a new installation CD that will load the drivers for your laptop as it boots. I haven’t try this method with windows 7, but I know it works well with Windows XP. Try and create a new Windows XP CD with the drivers see: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/35/
The start a new installation with this Windows XP CD and reformat you computer, after that you can do a new upgrade to windows 7

The bootable XP cd you have will work - You need to first reinstall the Operating System(XP), then download and install drivers for the devices(Such as touchpad, wireless, etc.)
The device drivers are all available from Acer's support site; If the Network Card driver isn't installed after the windows XP installation, you will need to use a different computer to download the drivers, and transfer them to your laptop using some sort of removable media - USB Flash drive, portable hard drive, memory card, etc.

.drv unknown file


Do you have Diable or some other blizzard game installed. It appears to be related to that.

Always a good idea to scan anyway, do a thorough virus scan, and malwars scan with your favorite scanner (malwarebytes antimalware, superantispyware, Spybot S&D)
