Windows 2000 setup problems
Posted on 2004-10-29
I am trying to install Windows 2000 on a totally clean system. I setup my bios to boot from cd. It prompts me first to press any key to boot from the cd. I boot from the installation disk and begin the setup. It examines my drive, etc. The first time I ran it I had the install delete the old partition on the drive and then create a new FAT 32 partition consisting of the entire 20 gig drive. All of this works fine. However, after copying the initial files for setup, the install automatocally restarts the computer. When it restarts, I do not press a key to boot from the cd and I get the error message NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart. I have done this several times and I always get the same message. Any thoughts?
