So I got all of the desired documents from one laptop to another (I'm formatting one), I put in a Windows XP Home w/ SP 2 Distributed by Dell (my x64 Professional version didnt work with the processor), deleted the first partition (it was infected with tons of viruses and spyware along with myriad missing program files and was destroyed beyond repair and wouldnt let me right click the C:, so I just deleted the partition) I installed Windows on the new partition I made, it got to 100% and then said error formatting check the drive blah blah, I tried again on the same partition, it worked fine, but gave me errors with installing some files. Then about 1/3 of the way through, a blue screen came up with some error messages. Now when I turn the laptop on (set to boot from CD) it says:
"Press any key to boot from CD.....
NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart."
And it never gets past that screen. What in the name of Christ happened and how can I possibly fix it? Thanks.
Oh, and it will allow me to enter PhoenixBIOS to make any changes there just for reference. Past that It gives me the message I said previously.
