Getting started on the K2000 and ran a scripted install. Now I receive the message that the NDLDR is missing. It ran through the create partition, format NTFS, but evidently it didn't "Install 2000/xp/2003 MBR"? Workstation is IBM - can get model if needed.

Just wanted to make sure your ran through them in that order right?

The task execute from top to bottom. Also does this happen on all models or just this one?

  • Task should go
    1. Create partition
    2. Format NTFS
    3. Install MBR

    Be sure that your boot image has all the required drivers. Especially NIC drivers. If it does not you can create a new boot image and add drivers with the Kace driver harvesting utility.

Likely issue is that you don't have device support for the storage controller. You can check BIOS and verify what storage mode that workstation is running in ATA etc etc. Sometimes just dumb it down to ATA lets it come up and verifies lack of storage controllers.

I would check your BIOS settings, ensuring that the computer is booting from the hard drive. Make sure that you don't have a CD in etc. This error doesn't necessarily mean that the MBR is missing but it may be the files as well. Does this deploy successfully to other machines?
