hi, I have two os systems installed xp sp2 on C: and Vista ultimate on D:(2 seperate ide hdd) Yesterday I formated C: and reinstalled xp pro sp2 which is really working very well. Now my problem is that when I try to boot from vista OS hdd it is giving me that "NTLDR is missing and to press cont-alt-del to reboot".To boot from this drive I had to enter into cmos and select it, because in Mycomputer-properties-advanced-startup and recovery is not showing. any ideas where I can download this missing NTLDR file or any suggestions will be greatly appriciated. Thank you. emm.

A general rule for dual booting is that you install the oldest OS first. By reinstalling XP you have overwritten the dual boot part of the boot file in Vista.
