Well your ntldr is your bootstrap loader for windows built on the nt file system. There are two ways to fix it, one is to put in your windows xp cd, load it and then choose the repair option and when you get to a command prompt type in chkdsk /r. If that doesn't work you'll have to reinstall windows.

Hi, Please use the below link for troubleshooting. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318728 This issue occurs when windows boot files are damaged / deleted. These 3 files are ntldr.exe, ntdetect.com, boot.ini. Better to repair the operating system by using the bootable disk which contains setup of your current windows operating system. In initial CMOS setup, please use the bootable disk as first bootable drive. You can go in this menu during early start of your desktop by pressing either DEL; F2; F10 buttons. Thanks, Amar
