CP 5.0 1005r "NTLDR is missing"

CP 5.0 1005r "NTLDR is missing"

CP 5.0 1005r "NTLDR is missing"

(OP)
Hey guys,

So I have 2 of these CP 1005r servers here on my bench and 1 of them came in without HDD's. So I placed 2 brand new HDD's in it, fired it up, inserted the CP 5.0 install disk for the 1005r, completed the install, and now every time it boots I get the "NTLDR is missing" error message. I tried following some suggestions online, but the CP 5.0 install disk is a little different than the normal Win 2003 Server disk, there is no Recovery Console...

So I got a 2nd CP 1005r server in a couple days ago and it had HDD's in it. I fired it up, started a fresh install of CP 5.0, and had the same result. "NTLDR is missing". Anyone have an awesome working solution to this issue?

Thanks in advance!

When I place a Windows XP disk in the CDRom and boot the server, it boots up no problem at all, doesn't give any error messages at all. Boots right into the Server 2003.

When I take the XP disk out and boot the server it gives me this:

INVALID BOOT.INI FILE
BOOTING FROM C:/WINDOWS

Then the screen goes blank and nothing ever happens.
