I would appreciate any advice you could give me after i've gotten myself into a pickle...
I was having lots of problems with my son's pc, tried to re-install Windows XP but it wouldn't let me. So then I took the hard drive out and gave it to a friend who had a sata external hard drive caddy and asked him to format the drive. I thought (mistakenly) that this would allow me to install my genuine copy of windows onto the drive and start afresh.
I haven't changed any settings...I marked the cables so I know I've put them back correctly...I've changed the boot sequence to boot from the cd.
After switching on and pressing any key to boot from CD I have a message which states that the NTLDR is missing and press ctrl+alt+del to restart
I don't know how many partitions there are..
