I bought a new HDD (Samsung HM160HC) to replace an old one (Toshiba 80GB) because of increasing bad sectors. After installation of Vista everything was ok but by adding another software it suddenly stops booting with error "Windows failed to load because the NLS data is missing, or corrupt". I spend lot of time searching on Internet what can be a problem and I found the problem could be with 48-bit LBA which is not supported by BIOS (vF.17). So my question is: Is there any other choise how I can make it working or am I wrong with something?
thanks in advance

You can download a Vista repair CD here:
Here are some instructions:
Much as I do not like Vista some of its technical tools are pretty slick.

I'll check it soon with recovery disk but until then I have checked the BIOS with testing tool from Intel http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/iaa/sb/cs-00

"nx8220 notebook disk upgrade XP boot problems"
Though my version of BIOS is even older at F.14. Did you find anything else that helped, e.g. other make of large disk that actually works...?
