    I am dutch and I have just made my first PC with an MSI K9AGM3 motherboard.
    I have an IDE CD-rom reader, a SATA Hatachi disk 160Gb and 1Gb memory
    connected to this motherboard.
    When I put the Window XP SP 2 installation disk in the CD-rom reader and
    after putting power on the system it does not come with the message wait as
    I am investigating your computer nor the message window set up nothing at
    After about 3 minutes hard work for the CD-Rom reader my computer comes with
    a message: I can't find file NTLDR.
    However the file is on the disk.
    I have tried Windows XPsp1 and that goes fine but I donot want Windows

    Is there any body who can help me?????

    Hello Hans; I believe the system cannot find the hard disk, double check
    your connection and the jumper on your had drive.
    Good luck!

    Have you set the bios to boot from your cd rom?

    Hoi Hans,

    Het kan zijn dat jouw XP-SP2 CD beschadigd is geraakt, en dat die niet
    correct meer leest.
    Verder kan het geen kwaad eerst XP-SP1 te installeren, en daarna SP2 er
    overheen te draaien, werkt net zo goed.
    Dan is het wel handig dat je eerst SP2 download, al dan niet via de
    update paigna's.

    Groeten, André
