Help: I installed a second HDD and was not recognised in Bios and in Device Manager. I rechecked the system and found that the ribbon cable was loose. Reconnected and rechecked bios and the device manager and hdd was detected ok. I shut down the PC and restarted once again but wooo the message on bottom left of screen was 'Ntldr is missing error'.
Any idea how to fix it as the PC won't boot.

Unplug the new hard drive and try to boot.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

If what dpunisher asks you to do does not work try this web page:


I have used this many times. Once you are online, you can edit your NTLDR and Boot.ini.

Good luck.
