Booted with XP CD, deleted partition, created new partition, formatted with ntfs, and XP setup copied setup files and rebooted... Now it's coming up with this error
Code: [ Select ]
Couldn't open multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)
NTDLR: Couldn't open multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)
  1. Couldn't open multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)
  2. NTDLR: Couldn't open multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)


Can anyone tell me how to fix this.

Boot to the XP disk and when it comes to the point where you can select 'R' to go to the recovery console hit 'R' and go to the Recovery Console. You must know the Admin password. Do the following:

fixmbr
fixboot

That should correct your problem.

If you haven't given any you don't need to know any.

Well, I find nothing to say so again if you have used both "fixmbr" and "fixboot".

You may need to edit boot.ini.

Doing a search on this someone suggested pulling the CMOS battery out for a minute and then putting it back in. Fixed his problem.

No, you will probably have to reset any values in your BIOS that you changed from default and reset the system time.
