Hi, I was planning to reinstall XP a couple days back and was deleting a couple of partitions I didn't think I needed. Upon restarting, I got the error "NTLDR is missing" which I had kind of anticipated might happen, so I put in my XP CD to reinstall. But it seems I now can't boot from CD at all for some reason... I just get the same error, or if I disable my hard drive in the BIOS setup, I just get "operating sytem not found". I've tried putting the CD drive first in the boot order, I've tried manually selecting to boot from it, I've tried taking my hard drive out, I've even tried resetting my BIOS, all to no avail. Can someone tell me what's happened here?
