Hey my mate was trying to reformat his hd but mucked up. When he started his computer it was coming up with some sort of STOP:0000x00000 type msg and unmountable boot volume. I tried the chkdsk /r and /f things and formatted the disk. When i started win xp setup from the cd everything seemed fine. XP installs and the desktop comes up but if you take the cd out and restart then a msg comes up with missing operating system. Can anyone help me?Cheers

The boot sequence is set to cd,hd, floppy. That was the sequence before so i want to keep it at that. When the xp cd is not in the drive then an error msg comes up about the ntldr file. Any ideas?

Try to get a good copy of NTLDR off of the CD and replace the potentially bad NTLDR file. I have Windows XP Home Edition and my NTLDR file is in the C:\I386 folder.
