I hope I am in the correct spot. I am replacing my hard drive in my desktop pc because my old one died. My set up that I have are, primary and secondary drive. My primary drive died.
I insert the new hd, made sure all connections were back in correctly. Checked my jumper settings and I am getting one of two messages; disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter help and NTDLR is missing press control alt delete.
When I get error disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter help, the bios setting is set at 1. cd-rom, 2. cd-rom and 3 hard drive. When I get error message NTDLR is missing error message I have the bios set at 1. cd-rom, 2 cd-rom 3. cd-rom. I returned the HD that I had and got another one from a different co and I am getting the same error so I know it is not the HD. During this whole time I do not have secondary set up because 1. I have items that are on there.
I also have a 3.5 disc on my pc but I do not use it. I made sure all usb items were removed (except my keyboard and mouse). In the CMOS, my cd-rom and primary drive are located.
I am not too sure what my other options are, besides throwing my desktop pc out of a tall building and then having drinks!!!
Any help is appreciated.
