I've just turned my PC on to be greeted with the message- NTLDR is missing, press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. Windows doesn't start up, just that message on a black screen. I don't have the set-up CD because Windows was pre installed on the PC when I bought it. Any ideas, helpline numbers?
Did you not get given a recovery disc of some sort. The NT Loader resides in the boot section and if damaged, windows will not load as you have found out. You will need an Operating System disc as MAT has advised.
Hi, I have just experienced the same report. I had just tried re-formatting a hard drive in an external case as I was intending to re-install Windows on it. My computer locked up halfway through the format so I had to power down. I then tried hard drive as slave, master and cable select in my computer but with all configurations I still got NTLDR missing. Do you have a second drive in your machine or attached externally? If so, try disconnecting the second drive.
All done!! Had to do a full recovery but here I am typing on my PC instead of my mobile. Didn't lose anything too valuable luckily, most of it backed up. It's just a pain getting all my old programs back. Thanks again, esp. Nuts.
