    ntldr is mising (XP PRO)

    Please help. I am trying to reformat my other computer's HD and The WD CD wiped it clean. When I insert the XP CD it goes so far in setup and then says " NTLDR is missing" hit CTL Alt Del.. and the same thing happens. I know I'm missing a file but how/from where do I install to continue setup?
    Thanks...

    Are you using an original CD that came with the PC? Are you accidentally trying to do a repair install instead of a clean install?

    Also: make sure that your Installation CD is clean and has no scratches. Make sure that your CD drive is clean and works properly.
    If your Installation CD is physically damaged, try to contact Microsoft (if you are using retail CD) or your computer vendor (if you are using OEM CD).
    If you think your CD drive is failing, try to replace it.
