NTLDR is missing this is the message i get then it says press any key to restart when u do nothing happens


Hi,
remove all the external devices plugged into your computer. and try to restart. if it does not work,
You need to have your Windows XP disk with you to resolve the problem. You just need to copy it directly from the Operating system CD. The NTLDR is responsible for loading Windows so if its is missing or damaged, there's no way you can load Windows back unless you copy it from the CD to your computer.
follow these steps:
1. insert the Windows XP disk in your computer
2.Restart your computer and press f12 to open up the boot menu
3. Select CD/DVDor ODD from the options and repeatedly tap the enter key until you see the "windows is loading files" message.
4. select the option to repair your computer (letter R)
(A command prompt will open)
5. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and press enter.
6. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. (leave it blank if you do not have a password)
7.type the following:
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\ (press enter)
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\ (press enter)
(letter e corresponds to the drive letter of your CD/DVD drive, change it if you have a different letter assigned to that drive. for example: Your DVD drive is drive F, instead of typing "copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\",type "copy f:\i386\ntldr c:\")
8. after succesfully copying the files, type in exit or quit and reboot the computer and allow it to reboot normally.

Hope this helps

'ntlr missing' after restart.


I have had this problem in the past and it was a virus. I had to reformat the hard driver then renstall the windows.

COULD NOT LOAD OS - TRIED 2000 & 2003 SERVER


Reinstall OS without repairing. Sometimes people make the mistake between a choosing repair and a full reinstall. Also backup any files before doing so.

Got following error: Load Error! Press any key to reboot


This problem is indeed caused by a faulty MBR but there are solutions other than zero-filling the drive.
If you can get access to a RipLinux CD there is a little utility called Testdisk that will write a new MBR code to the first block of the drive. I just did this on a Sony PCG-K15 this morning (after cloning the drive just to be safe) that was giving the same error of "LOAD ERROR- Press any key to reboot" and it worked like a charm. The machine booted right up.
Hope this helps...

Load Error! Press a key to reboot


If the computer after power on is checking the drives ie the CD and/or floppy to boot from then it is a software problem. You need to put in your recovery CD/disk and hope fully it will allow you to just fix the errors within the boot up files and not have to install os.

Your norton could help - try booting from that or the ones you produced by using Norton.

If you have to reload then do not format just save old - it should give you that option.

Problem loading win XP-SP2


Don;t know if this is the cause of u're errors, but it might be do to the motherboard chipset drivers (the lack of them in u're windows version). If so, u have to make a copy of u're windows cd with all u're motherboard drivers included, and try to install with that cd. The same problem appears to all new laptops that do not offer XP support and only Vista support . In order to do the new XP cd, u\ll need a little program that u'l find on internet..... (for example: n-lite)

Laptop CD/DVD Drive


In order to copy files to a CD like a hard drive you need a program that can treat the CD like a hard drive. Sometimes called *drag and drop or drag to disk*, is this what you?re using and if so what program are you using?
