Hi!
first thing this is not my writting

A / / go into the BIOS and check / set the BIOS boot order as this sequence:
1 / / on the floppy drive, if there
2 / / on the CD, needed to boot from the Windows installation CD before the hard disk.
3 / / on the SATA (I do not say "F", which is meaningless)
4 / / then possibly on FDI (eg C:)
A priori no issue of priority between IDE and SATA, I have a PC motherboard with multiple IDE and SATA, there was no problem for either the SATA primary drive (C:)

B / / Let the IDE disk physically in place, but disconnect the power supply and IDE cable. Just to simplify the manipulation ..
Connect the SATA connector on the SATA.
Of course, at this stage, no need to try booting the PC on the SATA disk.

C / / boot from the Windows CD, which will detect the windows already installed on this SATA drive. Confirm that it is important to update this Windows or crush.
If difficulty (if Windows is reluctant, saying that it is the same version), first delete the partition, before requesting the installation on that partition.
For formatting, specify when requested full format not quick, it's cleaner.
SATA will become the new C: drive, and will have everything you need to start properly under Windows.

If XP is at SP2 or SP3, it should not be any difficulty in recognizing the SATA. Otherwise, it is possible to have to declare in the Bios, under IDE, SATA compatibility mode, because the native Sata Bios originally was poorly recognized by XP. But it had worked for installing Windows on the ex F., a priori no problems! ...

D / / reconnect the IDE drive and reboot.
BIOS must correctly recognize the two drives and the IDE called probably E: or F:
From Windows, delete the partition, repartition and reformat the IDE drive for use later as a disk backup.
You can use it as an independent disk, or, if you love the stunts, the "up" on the (new) C: drive, and considered the "extension" of C: as a file. You will have the impression of having a single disc. But this by no means necessary, just to play ..

good luck

I have an Acer Aspire 3630 and when I turn it on, it comes up with a message saying "NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart". Does anyone have any idea of how to fix this, I do not have any CDs etc


It has to do with your operating system. The NT loader file is missing that's why it won't boot. You can download NTLDR or the best way is to reformat you laptop.

Can't start up message is "NTLDR is missing" I


You can try calling Dell to see if they will send you a re-installation CD. If it's out of warranty they will charge you for it. Either way you will need to have the OS (operating system software) CD to re-install Windows XP or Vista.

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source

Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.

Note: This error has also been known to occur when a memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it. If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras, ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer.

If you are attempting to boot from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files or is corrupt.

If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the 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.

Note: If you are not receiving the above message and your BIOS boot options are set properly it's also possible that your CD-ROM drive may not be booting from the CD-ROM properly. Verify the jumpers are set properly on the CD-ROM drive.

When i strt my dell latitude d600, powering on there appears" NTLDR is missing", message and below that another message is" Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to restart", but when do so after...


NTLDR is the abbreviation for New Technology Loader. That is a boot sequence for loading Windows 2000,XP, Win 7 etc. It is telling you that the boot file ntldr is missing or corrupt and gives you another chance at loading another system, that is if you have dual booting, however,when you restart the same thing happens. There are many detail specifics about this subject on the internet, so enter the phrase "ntldr is missing" into google and read all about it and how to fix it.
