NTLDR is missing error after Slack 10.1 install on brand new HD
I am one of the lucky folks who is being shown the "NTLDR is missing, Press cntrl alt del to restart" error. The odd thing is I am getting this message after installing a brand new hard drive and installing only Slackware 10.1 on it. No RAID or anything fancy.
Computer specs are:
DFI Lanparty MB
AMD Athlon 64 3000 2.0gz
1 200GB ATA/100 Maxtor hard drive
1GB DDR 400 RAM
Memorex CD/DVD combo burner
A real simple system. I did have this error before on my old dual boot system. I figured using a brand new hard drive would get rid of the error, but it did not. LILO was not able to install to the MBR when I tried to install it. I can only boot into Slack using a boot disk.
Does anyone have any advice or idea how to fix this problem (and what caused it)? I have researched online, but I only seem to find evidence of a Windows OS causing this error. In this case that is not possible.
