NTLDR is a file that is needed for windows to start. The fact that it is missing could mean several things:
1. Hard drive is failing
2. Virus or malware
3. Dropped the file in error.

If you have the disks that came with it you can use them to restore. You might be able to use F8 to get into advanced startup options. Then try startup repair.

You need to do full system recovery to boot up your pc again. NTLDR is a hidden file that is needed to boot windows. Your laptop should come with a recovery disc to re install Windows.
Hope this helps.

The recovery disc would be ideal but it is not nessarily what you need. File NTLDR is to boot up your commputer up to the point Windows takes over. If you know anyone that has Windows you just need to copy the following files to a CD and then boot your system from the CD...Copy files NTLDR, BOOT.INI, NTDETECT.COM AND NTKRNL.EXE to a CD ROM. The filles are located under C:\ and are hidden system files so you will have to turn off "hide system files" so they will show up.Copy them to a CD, then put the CD in your computer and boot from the CD. That's it, that will bring you to the Windows Welcome screen. Let me know if you have any questions.

Don't forget to rate this solution with 4 stars.

SOURCE: NTLDR IS MISSING for HP 530

  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.
    copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

    Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

I have an Acer Aspire 3630 and when I turn it on, it comes up with a message saying "NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart". Does anyone have any idea of how to fix this, I do not have any CDs etc


It has to do with your operating system. The NT loader file is missing that's why it won't boot. You can download NTLDR or the best way is to reformat you laptop.

If so, you need to restore it from installation disk (if you have the disc and external cd/dvd-rom).
