I am having a similar experience to that of Joseymatt above. To cut a long story short my friends PC was severely infected, running no anti-virus what so ever! After trying many many different avenues we decided to wipe the HD and start afresh. I hooked up the HD (Maxtor DiamondMax 10) as a slave to my uninfected PC and promptly reformatted it (right click, format). I think this is where the problems began? My PC is running Vista and the problem PC was runing XP? - After formatting the HD and reinstalling it back in the pc when I try to boot from the XP installation CD it comes up with 'BOOTMGR is missing'
I have just downloaded the boot CD as suggested by 'raphoenix' but still get the same error message?
All I want is to have a clean HD that I can reinstall XP any suggestions would be most welcome.
Thanks in advance
