Ep-8k9a mobo disk access problems

I have an old ep-8k9a mobo which may or may not be good. It used to work, was replaced and sat around for awhile, and I decided to try to use it. It needed a new battery, so I replaced it. It seems to have problems reading/writing hard and floppy disk drives, but seems to read CDs ok. Stress "seems to" since I can't verify that it actually reads CDs accurately. Any suggestions as to where to start?

Mo bo has nada to do with reading, writing, disks. That is the domain of the floppy drive and/or optical unit. You replace the latter drives.

Still stuck...

If you are referring to the NTLDR issue, you can achieve the same by booting from the XP CD and entering the Recovery Console, as outlined in methods 2 and 3 :o)

Hi again mate

The files are not available for download, no. However, even pirate copies (which I don't normally support ;o)) will have these files on them (either in the ISO or on the CD - whichever you used). NTbootdd.sys is a machine specific file, and is a copy of your drives device driver, so downloading it would do no good.;en-us;305595

Window problem

Hi pin,
Goto this link & follow the list of instructions. There is more than one way to fix for the "can not find ntldr" message. Take you time. One will work.

Good Luck!

Ah, that is a nasty problem. Sounds like the BIOS got corrupted. You have several options:
1. Get another bios chip from the mobo manufacturer.
2. Get another motherboard and use it to program your bad chip. See here how
3. Dump the old mobo and buy a new one.

I would go with option 3. The other options are just a big headache.
