Ok, I got a new harddrive today and I thought I attached it correctly and everything but when I try to install XP on it the HD is not found. I also get the message "NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart". It's a brand new harddrive.

What brand and size of Hard Drive is this? Did you go into the bios and detect it?

Microsoft has a troubleshooting page that may help:
