I think the hard drive has no operating system on it or the MBR :Master Boot Record" is corrupt.
Try downloading "Hirens Boot CD" and burn to cd and boot from it.
It has a lot of useful Utilities on it for restoring MBR and formatting and partitioning

    You nned to enable "Boot from Cd in the BIOS.
    When booting computer down the bottom of screen will be what key to press to enter BIOS usually
    the delete key or one of these
    CTRL+ESC or F2
    when in BIOS find the page to change boot options and set to CD/DVD
    then try the boot **** again
    Save as you exit BIOS

    The only other thing I can think of Without being there is
    Are all your hard drive and CD/DVD cables connected correctly
    The stripe on cables go toward the 4 pin power plug and the stripe goes next to the Number 1 pin on the M/board socket
    The Hard drive should be set to master and the CD/DVD if on same cable should be set to slave
    Sorry if this does not fix it I cannot think of anything else

NTLDR couldn't open drive multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1) how to open NTLDR drive multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1) ????


you'd have to boot to the system disk, get to the recovery console, and run a chkdsk /r- but even then there's a definite likelyhood that your hard drive has been completely hosed. (the error you're getting is "I don't have a system file- what do I do now!")

I am getting a disk 1/0 error and am not confident at all with computers. How can I fix this so my son can use the computer? My PC is about 6 years old and I only ever used it 9-10 times


Hello,


A..Access the BIOS setup by pressing the key designated for your BIOS at Startup? It can be Del/F1/F2 or whatever and will be shown on Boot Screen before Windows is loaded.
B. Do you have a Win98 Boot Diskette proven to work well in a PC?
If so:
1.With the Win98 Boot Diskette in the Floppy Drive, Restart the PC.
2. Press the BIOS key [Eg:Del] enter BIOS setup
Check for correct YYYY/MM/DD and Time for your Time Zone and proceed to take a good look at the entries of your IDE devices and Floppy Drive with special attention to your Hard Drive(s) in IDE section. If they are all properly identified and normal, you can EXIT the BIOS. [ It does not mattere "Save changes" or "don't save changes" as you have not made any changes.]
3. Wait for Boot Disk to be accessed and Windows Startup Menu to appear with the Options:
1.Start Computer with CD-ROM support.
2.Start Computer without CD-ROM support
3. Help File
4. Select the option,1.Start Computer with CD-ROM support. and ENTER
5. Watch the screen for CD-ROM driver installed successfully" and "Diagnostic Tools " installed and CD-ROM drive letter designation and finally appearance of A:\Prompt
6. At, A:\ Prompt type FDISK and press ENTER.
7. Accespt Y at the bottom of "Large Disk Support" message.
8. At FDISK menu select #4. Display...."
9. Check if the HDD is shown as C: A FAT32 and size.
I am suspecting a problem somewhere here; so if you don't have an Active C: drive press ESC >ESC and remove boot Disk CTRL +ALT+ DELETE to reboot and post back
If you have an Active C: drive, press ESC >ESC to A:\Prompt and type in C: and then at C:\> prompt, type DIR and [ENTER] look for Windows Directories. Here is another Problem area. If you cannot Find any Dir or get an Error, make sure your typing and spacing are OK [ No space after Drive letter for the Command] and if so, ALT+CTRL+DEL or Power Off.

If the problem is same do next .

Alternative Start Mode

1. Re-boot PC, as it starts tap F8 several times until the windows boot window appears.
2. Scroll to "Start with last known good configuration.)
3. Press "Enter"

Or
1. Re-boot PC, as it starts tap F8 several times until the windows boot window appears.
2. Scroll to "Safe Mode" (With networking, if you want to access the internet)
3. Press "Enter"

System Restore

1. Go "Start"
2. "All programs"
3. "Accessories"
4. "System tools"
5. "System Restore"
6. ensure "Restore to an earlier time" is checked and click "Next"

NTLDR is Missing.

Related errors:

Below are the full error messages that may be seen when the computer is booting.

NTLDR is Missing
Press any key to restart

Boot: Couldn't find NTLDR
Please insert another disk

NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl Alt Del to Restart
Cause:
Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32.
New hard disk drive being added.
Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.

Solutions:

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source




CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive.

Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.

Press any key to boot from the CD

Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.


Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS

Verify that your computer hard disk drive is properly setup in the BIOS / CMOS setup. Improper settings can cause this error. Additional information on how to enter the BIOS / CMOS setup can be found in document CH000192.

Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file

Windows 2000 users
Windows XP users

Windows 2000 users

If your computer is using Microsoft Windows 2000 and you are encountering the NTLDR error. Create the below boot.ini file on the floppy diskette drive.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

Copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files from another computer using the same operating system. Both of these files are located in the root directory of the primary hard disk drive. For example, C:\NTLDR and C:\NTDETECT.COM should be the locations of these files on many computers.

Please keep in mind that these files are hidden system files, if you need additional help with viewing hidden files in Windows please see document CH000516.

Once these files have been copied to a floppy diskette reboot the computer and copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files to the root directory of the primary hard disk drive. Below is an example of what commonly should be performed from the A:\> drive.

copy ntldr c:
copy ntdetect.com c:

After the above two files have been copied, remove the floppy diskette and reboot the computer.

Windows XP users
Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
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 "e." This letter may be different on your computer.

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

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

Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file

Edit the boot.ini on the root directory of the hard disk drive and verify that it is pointing to the correct location of your Windows operating system and that the partitions are properly defined. Additional information about the boot.ini can be found on document CH000492.

Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32

If you are getting this error message while you are attempting to upgrade to Windows 2000 or Windows XP from Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows ME running FAT32 please try the below recommendations.
Boot the computer with a Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows ME bootable diskette.
At the A:\> prompt type:

sys c:

After pressing enter you should receive the "System Transferred" message. Once this has been completed remove the floppy diskette and reboot the computer.

New hard disk drive being added

If you are attempting to add a new hard disk drive to the computer make sure that drive is a blank drive. Adding a new hard disk drive to a computer that already has Windows installed on it may cause the NTLDR error to occur.

If you are unsure if the new drive is blank or not try booting from a bootable diskette and format the new hard disk drive.

Corrupt boot sector / master boot record

It's possible your computer's hard disk drive may have a corrupt boot sector and/or master boot record. These can be repaired through the Microsoft Windows Recovery console by running the fixboot and fixmbr commands.

Additional information and help in getting into the Microsoft Windows Recovery console can be found on document CH000627.

Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP

If you have tried each of the above recommendations that apply to your situation and you continue to experience this issue it is possible you may have a seriously corrupted version of Microsoft Windows. Therefore we would recommend you reinstall Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

If you are encountering this issue during your setup you may wish to completely erase your computer hard disk drive and all of its existing data and then install Microsoft Windows 2000 / Windows XP. Additional information about erasing the computer and starting over can be found on document CH000186.

Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable

This issue has been known to be caused by a loose or fault IDE/EIDE cable. If the above recommendation does not resolve your issue and your computer hard disk drive is using an IDE or EIDE interface. Verify the computer hard disk drive cable is firmly connected by disconnected and reconnecting the cable.

If the issue continues it is also a possibility that the computer has a faulty cable, try replacing the hard disk drive cable with another cable and/or a new cable.

Hope this helps ,

There is only one OS, but during booting it shows three


Delete the OS Command line inside the MSConfig indow by clicking start - run -type msconfig then press enter. On the MS config window click on the boot.ini tab then you will see the command line inside the text box. Leave the first command line from [Boot Loader] till the end of the command line of your Default Operating system.

Example:
(Leave this lines)
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
(Till here!)
(Delete this line)
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Viz XP Example line Professional" /fastdetect (up to here)

any other command line that says Viz XP -- you may delete it. Click apply button then Restart the computer afterwards and this should fix the issue.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.

Cheers~

Cant we install multiple OS if i install multiple OS only the new OS will be booted the recent OS will be gone


that is because you are installing over the old one or simply upgrading the old OS, if you want a "multiboot" system each OS has to have its own directory on the drive, IE windows vista installed to c:\winvista and windows XP installed to c:\winxp your c:\boot.ini file which is where boot information is stored should update itself automatically, i do not suggest messing around in this file if you do not know exactly what you are doing as you could render the system unbootable

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?


If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Cheers!

I accidently set my boot menu to zero value on both choices now I cant boot back up


You don't say which setting you have 'assigned a zero value to', but the default settings are as follows:

Default operating system - Fortunately you couldn't have deleted anything here. Just make sure it is set to the OS of your choice (Chances are there will only be the one).

Time to display list... and time to display recovery... - Both should be 30 seconds (for XP and Vista). By default, both are ticked in XP, only time to display list is ticked in Vista.

If you hit the edit button (XP only) your boot file should look something like this (upper/lower case is not important, neither is the exact order):

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

Under the system failure section, tick everything.

Default for XP is small memory dump (64 KB), for Vista kernal memory dump.

Dump directory -

XP default is: %SystemRoot%\Minidump
Vista default is: %SystemRoot%\MWMORY.DMP

Do you REALLY promise you'll never do it again??? :-)

Boot hang after formatting of hard drive


no there isnt, you need to take it and put it in another computer as a slave drive. But you might have damaged your hard drive, you can try Hiren's boot cd from here www.phazeddl.com but personally i think you might have messd up the drive.

to install as a slave
1.) find a working computer
2.) put hd in as slave (do not remove old hd)
3.) boot
4.) it will show up in my computer
5.) format and unmount drive

it the computer fails to boot ensure you got the drive connected propperly and jumpers are correct

it thats all good then your drive is damaged

Won't boot without a windows disk...


Just taking a guess here. Did you do a fresh install of winXP? This type of problem is usually caused because the boot.ini is out of order OR your BIOS settings are not correct. Get into windows however you have to. Once in windows you'll find the boot.ini on the root of C:\ Please copy this file to a floppy disk just in case you make a boo-boo.
You need to check this file. Double left click the file & it will open in notepade. There are five lines and they must read like below, do not make a single line turn into 6 lines.
It should look just like this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect


The only differance between you & me might be the "name",
I use Windows XP Professional, yours might read Windows XP Home Edition.
Change what you need "only" and save the file. Double check. Than remove the CD from your PC and shut down. Wait a minute and start it up.

Invalid boot.ini


One of these two methods should fix your problem......... -------------------------- go to run and type in MSCONFIG. Then click on the "Boot.ini" tab. First, make sure if using XP Pro that the following is listed: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect - this is the boot.ini information from XP, straight from the Microsoft Web Site. All the information below [operating systems] should be on one line! If you have a blank boot.ini file, copy and paste this information - if all information is already there, then don't change anything. Next, click the button that says "check all boot paths". You should get back a message stating that everything is good (the computer checks to make sure the boot.ini file is compatible with Microsoft Operating Systems). Next, assuming your computer likes the boot.ini file that is in there (and it should), then click the button that says "set as default". By doing this, you have now created a new (modified) boot.ini file that is a carbon copy of the original. Click apply. You will be prompted to restart. Before doing so, go back to MSCONFIG and in the general tab you will see that "use modified boot.ini" should now be checked. During reboot, you should not get the invalid boot.ini message (at least I didn't). What you will get is a message (after reachign the desktop) stating that you are not using the defaults or something like that and do you wish to go back into MSCONFIG to restore the default settings. Since your new boot.ini file is exactly the same as your original, click no and check the box to hide that irritating message. ------------------------ Or you can try this method.... right click on my computer go to properties then click the advanced tab then cilck settings under start up and recovery under system startup then click edit and paste [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect --------------------------------- Peter
