please help!

In reconfiguring a Windows 200 system that seemed to have a c: partition with system files but d: partition "active" i have manged to delete something

i got the NTLDR is missing, did sys c: and now all I get is a C: prompt.

How do i get into Windoows 2000?

is it something to do with master boot record

I have tried to copy boot.ini from another machine but it never appears on the floppy!

please help

I belive (though I could be wrong) that NTLDR is one of the first parts of windows NT to LOAD ie. it sets up the rest of windows and gets everything to load in the right order if this is deleted or corrupt then the only course of action would be a reinstall as you will NOT be able to get into windows, even in safe mode, though I would not know if you might be able to replace it through DOS.
