Hi to my great family at Bleeping computer !
I bought a cheap laptop to add to a network in my home. It is a Thinkpad 600. When I bought it, it had Windows 98 on it and it ran fine. But, me being a little experimental is the real problem ! I took a Windows XP install disc, which belonged to a desktop, and began to put XP on the laptop. I deleted the Windows 98 partition and then proceeded to install XP. There started popping up warnings that certain files couldn't be loaded and after the second warning, I stopped the install.....oooooops !
Now I have a big problem! When I turn the laptop on, all I get is " NTLDR is missing" " Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". When I restart, it does the same thing .
I made a boot disc, onto a cd, because this laptop doesn't have a floppy drive. The boot disc doesn't do anything either. I went into BIOS and made the cd drive boot first, then the hard drive. That doesn't help either. The drive is spinning like it is trying to read the disc but no results.
Any and all help to get this laptop working again will be vefry much appreciated !
It has 160mb of RAM, if that helps any.
