Hi All,
hope you can help here, this is a bit off a long story so hear goes,

My friend is having problems bootoing into windows xp, he gets the ntldr missing or corrupt message.

If he goes into the bios and sets boot priority to cdrom, he,s prompted to insert boot disk after boot up, he does this and presses enter at the point where he's asked to press anykey to boot from cd he does nothing,
the pc then goers to a screan showing 2 versions of xp and askes him what one to boot to again he leaves the default one and presses enter, windows now boots.

I tried a repair install of windows for him aswell as a fresh install but we couldn't delete and recreate partitions as he had stuff on the other partition he needed to keep(c & d), but i did format the c before installing fresh copy of xp on it, but the problem still exists.

when i done the repair install the pc would not boot after install, just kept rebooting.

after fresh install the computer starts but still has original problem, when sp2 is installed on it and rebooted it just freezes.

any ideas!!!!!!!!

thanks in advance.:confused:
