I have a HP NC6000 laptop, 1.6 ghz pentium M. It has a 60 gb HDD, WIN XP pro. I have decided to upgrade to a SSD. I purchased an 16gb Supertalent (EX2 IDE MLC) that I would like to install a fresh XP install, then use the HDD for storage and file backup. The manufacturer says " upon install of the SSD the BIOS sign on message apperars and displays a key sequence to enter the BIOS setup. Sut up the BIOS to recognize the SSD"

I get a Failed to boot
sxe e61 media test failure check cable network

then it goes to NTLDR is missing.

What may be happening? Is there a better way to install the OS on the SSD?

Thanks in advance for your help. KEITH

  1. Problem was solve by installing "BOOTIT" NG from Ultimate Boot CD by narod.
  2. Yea, without TRIM options the SSD loaded up bad. I wanted to use it in the laptop as a speed experiment and the price was right on the 16gb. I wanted to put the OS on it and used the second Drive(HDD) for storage onboard. I think now I will use the on my desktop and dedicate it to just the OS, but it has plenty of speed already and the gain would be minor so I think I'll Ebay the SSD and upgrade to a larger one, I like the performance of SSD but I can wait for the price curve a little.
