    Help- It can't boot

    I have a VIA EPIA C3 MOBO and I am trying to get it to boot from the DVD-ROM. When I fire up the PC and it tries to boot from the DVD-ROM I get an error that it can't find the NTLDR

    Obviously I'm trying to install Win2k Pro...

    Thanks for any insight you can give.

    You need the 4 install disks. The 2K Pro CD isn't bootable to my understanding.

    I could be mistaken, but I think 2K Pro CD's are bootable depending if you have "MS Select CD's", OEM or Retail.

    I know my 2K Server CD is bootable, and I want to say that my 2K Pro is bootable since I built this from scratch here and didn't use the 4 disks...

    Try borrowing a regular CD-ROM Drive to see if that helps.
    Make sure your CD is clean and without smudges or scratches...
