Your problem is not that serious, in fact you can try to repair you windows OS by booting the windows XP installation CD-ROm, then choose repair windows instead of re-fomating & installing This will work definitively.
this is not the case my gateway laptop, NTLDR missing after trying to repair many times now
just keeps saying the following message,
Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer,
make sure any hard drive disks are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk related hardware configuration is correct.
This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.

Set up cannot continue. press F3

i ahve also tried running the Gateway Systems Recovery DVD Disk (original disk)
cant get any where, but when i take out and put a hard drive in from another laptop that works ok??

shall i just bin this Hard drive and buy a new one?

any help greatly appreicated
