I got a bad virus on my thinkpad t60, so i pulled the drive,copied up some of my data, formatted the partition, and restored an arconis image from september, copied my data back on, slapped the drive back in, power on.
Just a blinking cursor comes up, likely indicating no boot device is found.
CMOS boot order is correct.
Used gparted to check boot flag on this partition, was set, I reset it just incase.
Drive is good, curiously bios hdd diag stayed at 0%.
Have had similar problems with thinkpads before...
Do not want to do a fresh install.
One last thing I tried a different ntldr, from a freshly installed pc.
HELP, if you can.
P.S. I do kinda know what i'm doing, i'm in 3rd year CS program, with extensive IT exp. First time i've posted a problem here or anywhere, does it work?
