Question about Samsung (SP0822N) 80 GB Hard Drive
> formatted my HD
This deleted 99% of the files on the disk-drive.
> Primary IDE Master: NONE
> Primary IDE Slave: SP0822N
Good. Your motherboard has detected ONE disk-drive.
Do you have just one connected disk-drive on your PRIMARY channel, or do you have two connected disk-drives (via the 2 connectors on the one ribbon-cable on the PRIMARY channel) ?
If you have two drives connected via one ribbon-cable, you MUST set the 'master/slave/cable-select' jumpers on BOTH disk-drives, to identify which of the two will be the 'master' and which will be the 'slave'.
Also, check that the 'second' disk-drive is getting electrical power.
> NTLDR MISSING
Like I said, you deleted 99% of the files, including the 'NTLDR' file.
Your computer is trying to "boot" from the 1% of the files that still exist on the disk-drive, but cannot find the now-deleted file.
Perfectly normal, given that you have formatted the disk.
