couldn't find ntldr
I've been busy gathering some hardwre for a computer and when I try to install windows XP (on a blank HD) I get the an annoying error:
"Couldn't find NTLDR"
After this, the computer tries to boot from the HD which results in a bunch of 1s and 0s (HD is empty, or should be at least)
When I try to install ubuntu (5.04 - Hoary Hedgehog I believe) I get another error: "disk error 01, ax=4280, drive ef"
Composition of my system:
CPU: P4 fsb 533, 2.66GHz
MOBO: asrock p4v88
RAM: elixir 256MB 400 MHz, runs at 333MHz
PSU: 400W, which should be more than enough
Using the same install CD and the same HD I can get the install running on an other computer
I've tried several other drives... with no succes
I'm now off to get my brother's CPU: 1700, fsb 400, maybe to find my CPU has failed...
I'm completely in the dark here so any help is welcome
-sorry, my thread was in Dutch : )-

I would suspect either faulty HD, memory or doubling "s" in motherboards name.
First try Memtest
Then test HD
