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. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;305595

I have a KBT Neo-V MS-7032 V 1.0 motherboard that has problems booting from newer CD/DVDs. Some older CDs will boot such as the XP Pro installation disk. However, my Acronis backup restore disk and my...


Hi

Whether a CD will boot or not really decided by th emotherboard, it is decided by the basic control program called BIOS. BIOS works in a simple way by, if set to boot from a CD or DVD, checks whether the disk is bootable and, if so, boots from it.

First ensure that the discs you are using are all bootable.

Bootable Backup Restore and Partition Manager disks only work if data partitions already exist on the hard drive.

Bootable operating system discs can boot whether there is any data or partitions on the hard drive or not.

Partition Manager software can be used inside windows, to create, delete, resize and copy existing partitions. In other words, install and run the program from your Windows desktop.

Look here for guidance on creating bootable CDs

What is NTLDR error sir?


NTLDR (abbreviation of NT Loader) is the boot loader for all releases of Microsoft's Windows NT operating system up to and including Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. NTLDR is typically run from the primary hard disk drive, but it can also run from portable storage devices such as a CD-ROM, USB flash drive, or floppy disk. NTLDR can also load a non NT-based operating system given the appropriate boot sector in a file.
NTLDR requires, at the minimum, the following two files to be on the system volume:
  • NTLDR, which contains the main Boot loader itself
  • boot.ini, which contains configuration options for a boot menu.

This error means that NTLDR is missing somehow from your computer,hard disk problem,virus.etc
You can go to that page and follow the instructions exacty as he says and your problem will gone:)

Boot error always


Hello sir, hi your boot error can be caused by the following:
  1. Your IDE hard disk is not the first boot, and wrong available boot on the bios. Check your BIOS setup for proper boot device.
  2. Your IDE hard disk has bad serctors, since its P4, I estimate your drive to be 8 years or more. You may need to format the hard drive again and reinstall your OS (windows XP).
  3. IF your HD cannot be formated, or no amount of windows installation can be done on the disk, its time to replace it.
  4. Your IDE cannot be detected by the motherboard. check your BIOS configuration for proper hard disk setup.
  5. Your IDE hard drive and your CD drive are both master or both slave, set the hard disk to master and the CD drive to slave. The settings can be seen on the case of the HD and CD drive.
  6. Your IDE ribbon cable is bad.
  7. Your 4 pin molex power cable to the HD is loose.
If I miss out something, please let me know. thanks.

Sata on k7vt4a-pro. wont boot into windows with any dvd drive in sata plug.does motherboard support sata dvd drives


Hi,

not usually No.
You need to setup the Pc with an IDE drive First. Then load The Sata drivers, usually on the setup CD. ( obtained with motherboard )
Alternative, is to create a SATA/Raid boot Disk et,c.

Os install won't let me


Okay, this is elementary, but I've forgotten some pretty basic things before.

1. You've cleared the RTC?

2. Made sure you have the latest bios copy in it?

3. Gone into set up and set the computer to boot from the DVD before the hard drive? (If it's set to still boot from the hard drive first, it won't boot up)

4. Made sure the drives are properly defined?

By the way, does NT 4.0 run on Fat 32 or NTSC?

You don't happen to have a master/slave problem the way your drives are set up do you? Just trying to think of anything that might foul the install.

I think it sounds more like a hard drive problem with the way it is set up rather than the motherboard. I hope that is the case. Let me know how it goes.

Problems during formating


You have to chose the driver for your operating system and create a floly disk with it.
To create a floppy disk boot with your motherboard CD and chose the option to create floppy disk (WINXP)

If you are using windows Vista you can directly chose drivers form CD.

Abit th7raid motherboard-160GB HD cannot recognize-needs flashing-out of my depth!


Hi coonster,

Abit TH7 Raid driver.

Windows inability to see all of your hard disk drive is not a motherboard issue.
It’s a windows issue. ( I suggest you use the hard disk drive software from the manufacture’s web site). Most allow you to download software that allows you to create a bootable floppy disk. Boot to this disk & setup the drive in a dos like window.
Once completed you can now boot to the windows CD. Do not allow windows to format
the drive.
That is what the manufactures disk will do for you. Install windows & please update it fully. Windows should see all of the 160GB after updating.
If you feel you need to update the bios, feel free to do so.
Follow Abit’s instructions on how to update the bios from this link;
http://fae.abit.com.tw/eng/download/bios/index_old.htm#486

If you have never downloaded a bios file or drivers from this site it can be a bit confusing. You’ll need to high-light the entire link below, than right click once to open the pop-up window. Than left click copy. Open internet explorer. Right click once in the address window & left click past. Than press the enter key on your keyboard. The site has a timer on the left side of the page. You’ll have to wait for it to reach zero.
Than a yellow bar will open across the top of the page that says, (To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options...). Right click once on the yellow bar & left click download file. Create a folder on your desktop & name the folder " Drivers". Download the file named " infinst_enu.zip" into the driver folder. Us any uncompressing program & uncompress the file keeping the files within the driver folder. The action of uncompressing the *.zip file will create another folder named " Disk1".

http://www.nodevice.com/driver/download.html

To download the Abit TH7 Raid bios is done like the instructions above. For this bios file you’ll need to do the same with the link below;
Abit TH7 Raid bios file name " th736.exe ".

http://www.updrivers.com/getbios/Motherboard/Abit/TH7-Raid-BIOS/6187.html

Please retype verification code: "enter code listed on site".
Press enter.
Again create a folder on your desktop & name it Abit bios.

You will not find any drivers, bios or manuals directly from Abit. They no longer support this motherboard.

Good luck!
Mike

Installing an old hardrive to a new computer


depending on the BIOS type, there must be a method to disable IDE-0 from booting. If no method found, try booting from floppy disc and then run setup.exe from CD. Try to find this in the BIOS settings, then enable it again after you have fixed the Windows.
