Asus 901: Installing XP, "NTLDR Is Missing"

Discussion in 'Asus' started by (PeteCresswell), Dec 18, 2008.

  1. Booted from MSDN DVD, told it to install XP, SP1.

    Chose the larger of the two SD discs just on GPs.

    Specified NTFS as the file system.

    Install seemed to go normally, but when the 901 went to reboot,
    it posted a message "NTLDR Is Missing" and that was the end of
    it.

    Wasn't sure how to distinguish between the two SD disks bc they
    both seem tb named "SM-ASUS-PHISON", so I re-installed using the
    smaller of the two.

    Same result: "NTLDR Is Missing"

    Tried setting 1st Boot Device = "SM-ASUS-PHISON" in BIOS, but no
    luck.

    What am I missing?

  2. Per (PeteCresswell):
    Got it.

    Needs special drivers for the flash drives.
