Hi everybody - another problem. I have WXP Pro installed. When I came to start up today I get the message "NTLDR is missing - press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" I cannot get passed this with anything. HELP
If you do not have an XP disk all you need to do is copy C:/i386/NTLDR and C:/i386/ntdetect.exe to a floppy, insert floppy and the computer will boot up; you then need to copy the files back to your HD clicking on 'yes' to any 'are you sure you want to replace this file' prompts.
I'm sure someone will send these to you if you cannot get them, they total about 300kb. I'm not at home but if no one does and you are still having problems email me and I'll send them to you this evening.
Hi, Boy, am I pleased with myself. None of the workarounds let me into the system - boot disc, copying the i386 files etc. and I was panicking bigtime. SOLUTION I switched off and switched on again and kept tapping the delete key until BIOS appeared and I was then able to change the boot order to take the XPPro CD ROM first I then re-installed XP Pro and I am up-and-running. Time for a coffee.
