Question about Computers & Internet
That means that something is wrong with your Master Boot Record (MBR). If you have a Windows install CD put that in and then boot the machine, do a repair install of Windows. It will fix your MBR and you won't loose any data.

When you start your computer, you receive the error message "NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart."Cause
The error message "NTLDR is missing" means that the Windows boot loader (NT Loader, NTLDR) cannot be found. 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
First, check the boot drives to make sure that the computer is not trying to boot from a different drive to the one thatcontains Windows.
If this does not resolve the problem, you will have to repair the NT boot loader.Fix NTLDR
The easiest way to fix the "NTLDR is missing" error is to use Spotmau PowerSuite.However, if your computer is using Windows XP and you have a Windows XP installation CD you may be able to boot from this anduse the Recovery Console to fix NTLDR manually instead.Use Spotmau PowerSuiteInsert the Spotmau PowerSuite CD and start the computer. The main menu will appear.
The tool will repair the file and report "NTLDR and NTDETECT have been recovered successfully."

Then rebuild the boot configuration boot.ini file by
