Desktop computer runs fine with a 28G C drive and the WD ead 10 in D position as a storage drive.
(sysyem: 512 (ultra)Ram , OS is XP Home, 3.2 Ghtx Celleron processor.) Both H disks have XP windows loaded on
I decided to upgrade the RAM to 2G with 2 sticks of 1024 Wintec 400 3200 DDR.
The computer found all the memory and actually booted up the first time to a full desktop and ran for approx 5 mins.
Then it suddenly shut down and tried a restart. It again found all the hardware as before ( both drives and 2.3g of ram) but upon starting windows, it gives us an error message: missing NTLDR. I put in the XP os cd and tried a “fixboot” and successfully created another boot record but then recived a warning message regarding a non-standard MBR when I went to run the “FixMBR” utility under the Repair options on the windows repair consule. I didnt want to risk losing any data on the WD disk, so I typed in a N when it asked me if I wanted to continue. I wonder if my problem is that I have the os system xp on the WD10ead hd.??? Any suggestions?? not much of an IT guy here… just a self learner…appreciate any help anyone can give
