Sorry, but there is no "master" product key for any version of Microsoft Windows. You need the key for the copy you have, and failing that, you'll need to buy a copy of Windows (I'd suggest XP over Vista) that comes complete with the key. On the plus side, if you shop around, yoiu should be able to find either a discounted or even used version pretty cheaply, Just make sure that whatever you buy comes with the key, otherwise, it is worthless.

Cheers
Nick

Ntldr is missing press ctlr+alt+ and delete to restar and i did and don't workz


First I have to assume that you are running Windows XP. This solution should work for other versions of Windows.
The "NTLDR is missing" error displays very shortly after the computer is first started, immediately after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP has only initially begun to load when the NTLDR error message appears.
Causes of NTLDR Errors
There are a number of possible causes for NTLDR errors, including the most common "NTLDR is missing" error message.
The most common reason for this error is when your PC is trying to boot from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from; in other words, it's trying to boot from a non-bootable source. This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from.
Other possible causes include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.
How to Fix NTLDR Errors
1.Restart the PC. The NTLDR error could be a fluke.

2.Check your floppy and optical (CD/DVD/BD) drives for media and disconnect any external drives. Often times, the "NTLDR is Missing" error will appear if your PC is trying to boot to a non-bootable floppy disk, CD/DVD/BD, or external hard drive or flash drive.
Note: If you find that this is the cause of your problem and it's happening a lot, you might want to consider changing the boot order in BIOS so the hard drive with Windows installed is listed first.

3.Check the hard drive and other drive settings in BIOS and ensure they are correct. The BIOS configuration tells the computer how to use a drive so incorrect settings can cause problems, including NTLDR errors.
Note: There is usually an Auto setting for hard drive and optical drive configurations in BIOS which is usually a safe bet if you're not sure what to do.

4. Restore the NTLDR and ntdetect.com files from the Windows XP CD. Restoring these two important system files from the original Windows XP CD may do the trick.

5. Repair or replace the boot.ini file. This will prevent the NTLDR error if the cause of the problem is a boot.ini file that is not configured properly for your Windows XP installation.

6. Write a new partition boot sector to the Windows XP system partition. If the partition boot sector has become corrupt or isn't properly configured, you may receive the "NTLDR is Missing" error.

7. Repair the Windows XP master boot record. NTLDR error messages may also appear if the master boot record is corrupt.

8. Reseat all internal data and power cables. NTLDR error messages could be caused by loose or malfunctioning IDE cables.
Try replacing the IDE cable cable if you suspect it might be faulty.

9. Update your motherboard's BIOS. Occasionally, an outdated BIOS version can cause the "NTLDR is Missing" error.

10. Perform a repair installation of Windows XP. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.

11. Perform a clean installation of Windows XP. This type of installation will completely remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch. While this will almost certainly resolve any NTLDR errors, it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.
If you can't gain access to your files to back them up, understand that you will lose them all if you continue with a clean installation of Windows XP.

12. Replace the hard drive and then perform a new installation of Windows XP. If all else has failed, including the clean installation from the last step, you're most likely facing a hardware issue with your hard drive.
NTLDR Errors Apply To
This issue applies to the Windows XP operating system, including Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home Edition.
Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista utilize BOOTMGR, not NTLDR.
Still Having NTLDR Issues?
See Get More Help for information about contacting me on social networks or via email, posting on tech support forums, and more. Be sure to let me know what steps, if any, you've already taken to fix the "NTLDR is missing" issue.

Hi ,I have HP Pav DV6 with windows 7.But I want to install windows server 2003 & its not allowing me.I want to make it dual boot,Plzz help.I need to do it urgently...


Hi,
Please understand that Windows 7 uses different startup files and procedures so it is expected that the original Windows Windows 7 system cannot be booted if you install a new dual boot Windows Server 2003 system. If you would like to install Windows Server 2003 on another partition, please do that first. After that, Windows Server 2003 will boot but WIndows 7 not. However, we can try the following method to make Windows Vista work again: Insert the Windows 7 disk into DVD-ROM. Click Start, click Accessories, right-click the command-prompt shortcut, and then click Run as Administrator. Type the following command at a command prompt and press Enter: Drive:\boot\Bootsect.exe /NT60 All In this command, Drive is the drive where the Windows 7 installation media is located. Note The boot folder for this step is on the DVD drive. 4. type the following commands at a command prompt and press Enter. Note In the commands below, Drive is the drive where Windows 7 is installed. Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d "Windows Server 2003" Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /set {ntldr} device partition=x: (Note: x: is the drive letter for the active partition. For example, if 2003 is installed on C drive, device partition=c: ) Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /set {ntldr} path \ntldr Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /addlast
5. Restart the computer.

WANT TO INSTALL WIN SERVER O/S IN COMPAQ LAPTOP CQ40-317TU


It all depends on your system specifications.
If you are thinking of installing Windows Server 2003,then try to make sure that your system meets the following minimum system requirements: 128MB RAM and a 600MHz processor, and I recommend 5Gig HDD Free space.
But if it is Windows 2008 Server, then think of having this : 512MB of Ram, 10Gig of HDD free space, and an x86 processor with minimum speed of 1Ghz, or an x64 processor with minimum speed of 1.4Ghz.
Hope this helps you out .
Goodluck!

Constant error messages from hp deskjet2400


From the forum this is in, I will assume that you are running Win2k3EE on your laptop. Your issue might be a compatability issue with the print drivers. HP is notorious for making bad print drivers (ever since their aquisition of Compaq...before that, they did rock-solid work IMHO). For this printer, you may want to 1) uninstall the printer and use the Windows printer install wizard, as opposed to the HP installer, or 2) see if HP does offer a Server 2003 specific driver. HP commonly includes a bunch of "junk" in their Deskjet print drivers because those printers are targeted to individual home users who will use XP or Vista. Hope this helps...I know it isn't much to go on...good luck!
