Missing NTLDR

This may seem a unuasual question. What display would be shown on a monitor screen if the power supply to the HDD was missing or the HDD was Kaput (SATA). A friend of mine asked me to look at his XP Home machine as he has fried his power supply. We changed his power supply now he gets a message Missing NTLDR. I know the NTLDR is part of the bootstrap loader setup. I was wondering if a non functioning HDD would cause this error display or is it just a case of a currupt file.

Thanks VoG™ for your prompt reply I will look into the 9 points shown. I am surpised PCA have not snaped you up and have you on their payroll for all the help you give. It may not be PC in the current world to say it but a Merry Christmas to one and all.
