1. Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
2 .Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
3. Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
4 .Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
5. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32.
6. New hard disk drive being added.
7.Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
8. Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
9. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.

its basically a generic message saying it can't find a boot device. you might have to change the HD boot priority in the bios, for it to boot off a different HD.

windows NT LoaDeR.

It is the program that loads (or starts the loading) the operation system itself.

In the bios, is the order of which storage device to start from set correctly?

Your system might be trying to startup using the wrong drive.

but how can we remote desktop if your system won't boot

If you can, back up the boot.ini file, and then edit the original to remove any references to the XP install. You might need to change the location of the MCE install in the boot.ini too.

Yeah, I'll have to check the BIOS for this..As it is, I finally solved the question of the "Mystrey FloppY" (since I have no fdd installed) by finding "legacy diskette--> disable" in a dark, remote BIOS corner....<laugh>



oh you mean the first page of every bios.............
