    Hi All

    I should know this one, but i seem to be having one of those 'mind blank' days.

    A Caller has just logged a call with us and at start up he gets an error massage

    "NT DETECT FAILED"

    Any ideas to resolve this error

    Ntdetect.com - This is a hidden, read-only system file used to examine the hardware available and to build a hardware list.

    Ntdetect.com is missing, Use the emergency repair process.

    Tried using an emergency repair disk, but it is not a bootable disc, says you need to boot to the setup cd rom them insret the floppy when prompted, however this user is off site and they do not have the setup cd's
