I have a Dell running xp home.
When I booted it I got a ntldr missing error. So I decided to do a windows repair. The repair went well until it got to installing network. It just stops not hangs but stops. The ads keep changing. I have removed all pci cards replaced the video driver and disabled all onboard peripherals. None of this helped. I installed a new drive and loaded windows from scratch and if loaded fine. Just for the heck of it I copied the doc & settings, program files and windows folder from the old disk to the new one. I have the same problem with the new one.
Is there a way to stop it from restarting the installition? I am open to suggestions. I would like to repair the old windows so I don't have to reinstall all the programs.
