I installed xp pro onto a drive I put as a slave and it worked fine then I put the drive as a master into my other computer and it when it loads it says NTLDR missing. I installed xp with the other pc cause the other didn't recognize my dvd drive.

If you installed XP onto a drive in one compiyer, then swapped out the drive into another computer to be the boot drive, you must expect problems unless both computers have absolutely identical hardware, CPU's and motherboards.

This is due to the new PC being force fed all the hardware drivers that pertain to the PC that the installation was done on when it boots up.

Its seldom ever a success with XP, and leads to short term and long term problems, if indeed you can ever get it to boot.
