NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart.. This is the message i get when trying to install xp.

Well the problem here guys is that i forgot my admin pw to my bios so i can tell the computer to boot from the cd-rom. This is a laptop issue and ive heard that there is a button to bipass this problem on all laptops. I dont know how true it is but was hoping someone could shed some light. My laptop also did not come with a floppy drive so i cant try to use a 98 boot disk to install xp either . Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.. Thank you in advance.

BTW i erased the entire partition so i have nothing without being able to get into the bios. My laptop is a prostar and its model number is D87P.

They are talking about a reset buttom, or jumper (on the MB) - you will probably have to open the case of the laptop - sorry...
Pull the cmos battery from the MB for 15 minutes. That will return everything to factory specs and erase the BIOs password.
