Well, I tried to use bootpart and it says me that it has restore the NT
boot sector but when I reboot, the problem remains. I guess that the
problem is not only due to the boot sector because dos fdisk says that
he couldn't read my first hard drive. I guess I'll have to re-install NT
but I can't by now because my NT CD is not available. So, if someone
knows what's going on please tell me, otherwise I'll wait for my NT CD
to come back. Anyway, thanks to all the guys who tried to help me.
