Question about HP e-PC 42 PC Desktop
If you haven't figured this out yet, then you need to verify there is no flopppy in the drive. I've seen this where it tries to boot to the floppy and fails because the flpoppy isn't a boot disk.

NTLDR stands for NT loader, and it is the set of core files needed to start Windows.
When you get the message NTLDR is missing, it means that one of the files required to start Windows is corrupted.
When this happens usually you need to reinstall windows using a Windows install disk or a recovery disk.

NT Loader (NTLDR) is a small piece of software loaded from the boot sector of your primary hard drive that helps your operating system start.
If you have multiple operating systems installed and properly configured, NTLDR will show a boot menu when your PC starts, allowing you to choose which operating system to start.

This oftenoccurs when the computer tries to boot from a drive other than the one Windows is installed on, due to a change in the driveconfiguration or because you left a bootable disk in a removable drive. But it may also be because the NTLDR file has beencorrupted or deleted.SolutionCheck the boot drives
