You can run a repair of Windows. You need to boot to Windows CD 1. make your BIOS to boot from CD first. 2. boot to your Windows OS cd. 3. Press R to repair. 4. select the OS version. 5. type chkdsk /r on the prompt. 6. it will start a process and restart. 7. this time let the PC boot normaly. should work. Hey I faced the similar issue and got it resolved thru *** tech guys.

Do you have a floppy disk in the drive? Is your boot sequence incorrect, do you have multiple drives, or a USB Memory device installed. You have no idea where the OS installation disk or your application disks are. You care about what's on the drive, as you have no backups of your data. If the answer to these question are all no, then simply REFORMAT the drive when you install the operating system. Make sure that you REMOVE all other drives, so you don't get confused about what drive you are installing to. P.D. P.S. Let us know if you still need help, if you can't re-install from scratch, I may be able to walk you through repairing your OS installation. P.P.S MS-DOS will not read most NT(2K,XP) installations, as it cannot normally read NTFS volumes. The 2K and XP Install CDs provide a recovery console that work like dos, but the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows ( ) blows the recovery console away. :)

If you have problems re-installing windows with NTLDR (New Technology Loader), the boot.ini file that it uses is damaged. I have only managed to get this sorted with a Full copy of windows as the recovery cd you get with some pc's have only the ability to restore your pc back to it's original state, which means a complete re-format first, giving no option for the recovery console. Even when using a full windows copy, the recovery console repairs did not work because it became apparent the HDD was damaged. You should however be able to install windows again assuming you have your cd/dvd drive as the first boot device but you will be better re- formating the drive when prompted as re installing over the top of windows can still cause problems. If you know what your doing you can copy the 'NTLDR' from the i386 folder on the disc, in to system by using a boot disk to get into msdos.

NTLDR is missing means what?

NTLDR (NT Loader) is a crucial part of your Windows OS
Without it your system cannot boot up.

This tells me your OS is corrupted and possibly beyond repair.

If you have a Windows installation disk you could try booting up with it on and attempt a repair install. If that doesn't work your only other option is to reinstall Windows

NTLDR is missing

Check your setup settings (BIOS) to make sure your booting from the correct drive. If the computer is trying to boot from the cd drive or USB, rather than the hard drive, you will receive this error message.

I have tried to restore my computer and keep getting the message of failed reason Oxf0000005.

This is a message that is given with a blue screen? If so then it is a Common error message for Missing NTLDR. Reinstall OS again.
What version of Windows and how far into the Restore are you getting to when you get this issue?
Also, it could be an issue with the restore image/files that you are using that is causing the problem.

If you have the OS disks try a repair first. Run the OS disk and choose the repair option rather than reformatting. That usually fixes ntldr issues.
