Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.

If you are attempting to boot from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files and/or is corrupt.

If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive. Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.

Press any key to boot from the CD

When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.

I have everything set right in the BIO's  and I know what I'm doing with the SATA Raptor HD  I've set it up before,  It has something to do with the Motherboard change,  That screws up all the OEM settings  I was wondering if there was a way to load the O/S onto the Raptor HD  now that all the setting's for the OEM have been deleted, I thought there was a way in DOS to repair the install,  Thanks For the Help tho
