    I am trying to load NT on a computer. It worked fine. Added SP6 and rebooted fine. Added sound card driver, vid. drivers, and network card drivers. Rebooted and I get this error. It then goes and tries to boot from CDROM and then says press N to boot from network. It then says "Boot failure Insert boot disk in A: press any key when ready" Of course, I didn't make a repair disk either. I am on location and need a fix ASAP. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    fdisked to nothing then added a 2 gb fat16 and reformated and reinstalled. It did the same thing. Then, I fdisk /mbr and reformated and re-installed and it's working now.

    Strange.
