How do change partition boot

Ibm / Think pad r40
March 31, 2009 at 18:17:49
Specs: XP professional
Ok I did something stupid, I have an IBM thinkpad that was running out of space. I noticed that the partion had more room so I changed it to use it instead. Once I restarted the computer I get NTLDR is missing. Need help, I know that I need to change it back but can't get to it.

Why are you asking the question the database forum?

This is the first time using this site and I thought database was the best choice. The only other option was XP but the OS is not the problem it is the bios and hardware is not an option. I take it this is the wrong place to post it your you would not have sent this, sorry. What is the best place to post this problem so I can try to get it resolved Thanks.

Most of these types of questions would go into the General Hardware forum.

You'll get the most help for something like this there.

Your question is OS related, and definitely NOT database related.


I don't know what you changed, or how you changed it. "I noticed that the partion had more room so I changed it to use it instead" What exactly does that mean?

The drive is only a 15GB (laptop) and from the factory it was partioned 7GB and 8GB the boot files were on the 7GB part and had 100MB left so I switched which was primary so when I rebooted the system that was it. Now it just gives me NTLDR is missing that is the whole story thanks for asking.

"so I switched which was primary " How did you do that? Is there an OS on the second partition?
