Question about HP Computers & Internet
It's the boot loader. Make sure you have no floppy or cd in a drive and trying to boot off of them.
Since it's a complicated repair, here is a link. If your not a computer wiz, you might want to hire someone.

NTLDR missing means that the computer is not finding the boot sequence of an Operating System on the drive that you are trying to boot from.
If you had Windows installed then something corrupted the boot sector of your hard drive. If you are trying to install from a restore disk, it means that the CD/DVD rom drive is NOT selected as a boot device.
Either way you'll need an Operating system disk to fix it.
If Windows was already installed, you might be able to do just a repair.
Otherwise you'll need to Install the operating system
To make sure your CD/DVD drive is the boot drive
1.) When the PC is booting up push <Delete> or <F12> to enter the bios find the option for boot order and adjust it so that your cd/dvd drive is first in the sequence press <F10> to save and exit.
Now that you can boot from your CD/DVD put your windows disk in the drive and reboot your PC
During the startup for the installer you will have the option to "Repair" Do this if you had Windows previously installed
Otherwise continue with the installation process.
Hope you find this Useful
