I have got a new system. ABIT aw9d motherboard (sata and only 1 ide (for dvdrom)). Intel e6400 core 2 duo, 2gb corsair ram and an ati x1950pro video card.

I cannot install windows, as when I try to boot from cd and press any key to boot, it waits then tells me ntloader.sys cannot be found. The HDD has been checked over in a shop and is fine, and i've tried 3 different OS discs (am trying to install xp pro). It has been suggested that the power to my usb is gone, as I did have that issue when building the system that caused it not to boot at all. Then it did work installing but with older ram with 1 broken module. So naturally I got new stuff, and iv got the problems. But I get no errors to indicate it is the ram. Just the NTLoader.sys is missing. I can get into bios on my usb mouse and k/board.

Should I try ps2 keyboard and mouse for installation? Would a new OS ie Vista solve this problem or is it still NT based?

Any help would be much appreciated, as I am struggling to get by on an amd xp3200 system with fx5200 lol. I really need the system up and running, missed out on a competition because of it ^^ Thanks guys.

Sorry for being so late in responding.

Have you tried entering the BIOS of the motherboard to see if the boot sequence has been set to run as:

1. floppy drive
2. cd/dvd drive
3. hard drive 0

If this isn't the current setup, then you need to change it, so the CD take preference over the HDD when you try installing XP again.

Stay away from Vista on this machine, it's not made to work with older systems, and as far as I'm concerned it's utter ****.
