    Sata HD 160gb had problems resently & must have deleted the boot info or something.

    After reformating it with Maxblast when I insert the win XP CD it says:-

    File \i386\ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded.

    ERROR 7

    Setup cannot continue.

    Any help to restore HD with XP will be appreciated ..........nick

    Thanx,

    I got it going BUT!, that happened when I disabled that Sata HD in Bios & tried to install another Pata Maxtor, which proved corrupted anyway.

    Should that cause the SATA to loose its data?. ........nick

    Re: SOLVED HD sata problems

    I cleaned the ram sticks & have been able to properly reformat my two old HDs & install XP.

    I shatter to think of all the troubles I went to the last 6-8 months with failures. ........nick
