Error - NTLDR mssing - cannot boot

  Murray 19:08 27 Jan 2003

A friend's PC booted up the other day and said Error NTLDR is missing - it will not boot into windows - How can I sort this out?

I know it is somthing to do with the NT loader -

any thoughts???

many times before on the forum this has been said.
take out the floppy disk

Had the same problem and used the same page as ellas has pointed you to and it did it for me. Gud luk.

I doubt there is a floppy disk in there twoOOlbwaster. If there was it would most likely just say invalid system disk

trust me you get ntldr is missing try it out yourself(also says about invalid sys disk error)

i have the same problem when trying to boot my pc from raid.

i've followed these instructions a thousand times and everytime i get the same message "ntldr is missing".

i've looked through my xp cd and the ntldr is not where microsoft say it is.

in the end i just gave up and now my other 2 ide ports are rendered useless.

I had same prob and there weren't any floppy disk in the drive.

  Murray 20:12 27 Jan 2003

There is no floppy in the drive - any other sugestions???

After reading the KB article the best bet is to use the windows CD

thanks ellas

I used the recovery console part of MS's solution and it did the trick
