Default Re: Install Windows in Western Digital HDD????

I have installed windows on many Maxtor and WD drives. The procedure is the same for both. Boot from the xp cd and follow the install instructions.

WD SUCKS!
Don't criticize something just because you don't know how to use it. Anyway, you don't need any DOS programs. Why would you install DOS anyway? All newer versions of XP have done away with it. Just insert the XP installation disc and wait for it to boot. Simple as pie.

I am sorry.. out of anger and frustration I say that WD sucks..

Okay I finally got it working somewhere now. I am using the right dos bootup program to make partition to the HDD.

Now when I turn the computer on it says "NTLDR is missing." What does that mean???? And how can I solve this?
