    I have installed a slave harddrive and upon bootup, the message:

    Press any key to restart.

    When I press any key, the message pops up again.

    :confused:

    Download this to your desktop then insert a blank formatted floppy in the drive. Next double click on the downloaded file and then reboot your system with the bootdisk. Be sure it is set to boot from A drive first in the bios. When you get the system up and running you will have to replace the ntldr file on your system with hte one from the floppy.
