Original Problem Posted by: Austen on 10/17/2002
With a NEW 80GB hard disk, BIOS upgrade and new copy of Windows XP everything installed and ran fine.
UNTIL... I put in my last new piece of hardware... a Geforce 4 from Creative labs.
On booting I got "NTLDR missing". (ON INSERTING A GRAPHICS CARD???!!!).
Put back my old card and everything works fine.
Put my old hard disk in with win98 and the the NEW graphics card works fine.
I've tried re-installing XP with the geforce4 in but it gives "NTLDR missing" on rebooting DURING the installation.
Booting from the XP CD and using recover doesn't make any difference.
I made a boot disk which works ok with my old graphics card, put in the new one and i get HAL.DLL is missing or corrupt.
Can anyone help me to solve this?
