Well it first started when the PC crashed, nothing worked so i just restarted it. it loaded upto to the Windows xp screen and just got stuck there, the loading bar just kept on going but nothing else happened. After about 4 tries and 2 failed "safe mode" tries i just gave up and decided to format.
Now this is the problem, this PC is custom made, but it was made by a company called carrera ssc(in the u.k). This company went into adminatrastion/bankrupt a few months ago so i can not get a recovory disk. there is the "press F10 to recover" option, which i did try but at 18% it gives me an error saying that a file could not be found, after that it goes upto 19% and just never moves, i had to restart it and now when booting i get an error "NTLDR is missing". I cannot format so now i have no working windows, is there anything i can do? would a normal windows xp disc work with an oem copy installed by this company? or do i have to buy a retail copy ?
Heres my specs if its relevent:
Amd 64 3200
Asus k8vse deluxe
maxtor 160gb s-ata
