A customer brings me a computer telling me that it had a virus and a family member cleaned it for them and now the computer won't boot.
When I turned the computer on it said Ntldr missing
ok simple enough, I tried to copy Ntldr from the recovery console but it failed. and I could not access any file or directory on C:
so from this point I tried to reinstall windows. I deleted the C: and then partitioned and formated the drive and once setup started to copy the files I started getting errors, random files could not be copied and then a BSOD.
I have tried 3 different install cd's. I replaced the cd drive. I striped the computer to barebones. and I'm still getting the errors.
I am currently running Memtest on it. It's on test 3 with no errors yet.
I am going to run chkdsk next and I'm thinking about trying yet another (4th) install cd.
does anyone have any ideas I might try if I still cant install windows.
