Hi.

That means that either the media where you want to copy the files is faulty or write-protected(eg. when using an USB stick), or that one of the files is corrupted.

Try copying different files one by one. Let me know if the problem happens with all files.

Also let me know from where to where you are copying the files (eg.from USB stick onto My documents on C: drive).

Thanks.

    If you had Vista installed in your laptop, that may be the reason. XP install disk and XP boot CD often do not recognize SATA hard drives. Try changing BIOS settings from SATA to IDE compatible drive controller before installing XP. See:Windows XP setup ...

This usually means that you have HDD bad sector or some kind of HDD read/write error.Boot up in DOS mode and use HDD Regenerator to check and repair your hard disk drive.This can be easily done with Hiren's Boot CD. You can download it from here. After downloading, burn ISO on a disk and try booting from CD-Drive.

NTLDR IS MISSING for HP 530


  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 "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.

Windows xp pro will not boot with new hard drive


Its hard to tell just like this without having the computer in hand to check and test the jumpers and connection and all, but quick like this i think it might be a trojan virus that corrupted the boot sectors of the old hard drive, and when you copied the stuff from the old to the new, the virus followed and infected the boot sectors of the new one too. Try to reformat completely using the original windows install disk, and not the system restore/reinstall disk and reinstall windows after the format with the original windows disk again. If I was right, it should boot up OK with a fresh format and reinstall with the real windows CD, then install a virus scan and a spyware scan and scan and clean the old drive completely 2 or 3 times to be sure theres nothing bad left on it, then try to copy the whole disc, but skip the Windows repertory, the Program Files one too and the Documents and settings one also, cause those 3 are the ones most prone to corrupting a fresh install even if there is not any viruses in them. If it does not boot up OK after formating and reinstalling Windows though and says it's unbootable, then either there is a config error in the BIOS of the laptop, or the IDE controller that drives the disk is defective. If it's the BIOS settings, it's gonna be easy enough just changing the settings and won't cost you too much, and if its the IDE controller... then that's another story cause it's integrated in the motherboard like any other computer, so basically another computer will cost less than a new motherboard for a laptop. So if that is the case and the IDE controller is shot, you can still try to use an external USB drive to run the computer but not all computers support booting from the USB though, so before buying a brand new external drive, check the BIOS first to see if it does support USB booting.

Files in my kingston pendrive does not open up


Hi manoj_clc,

The "other PC" needs to have the same application installed that created the files. It sounds likely that is the problem for the other PC. If the files are failing to open using the PC that originally copied the files, then try formatting the USB drive (formatting deletes all data). Before you copy the file again, make sure the same file opens from your computer prior to copying it. Now copy the file to it the USB drive again.
