4 Select the drive on which you want to install Windows XP and press the "C" button, followed by the "Enter" button.

NTLDR is missing is displayed when i turn on the computer


The "NTLDR is missing", error displays very shortly after the computer is first started; after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP might only initially load when the NTLDR error message appears. Causes of this error message include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.

How do I rebuild the MBR?


Hi,

You will need an XP install CD for this and also set the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device.

  1. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.

  2. Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
  3. When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console.
  4. The Recovery Console is now loading but needs to know which Windows installation to access. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation so the choice is usually clear.
    To the Which Windows installation would you like to log onto question, press 1 and then Enter.
  5. The Recovery Console now needs to know the administrator password for this Windows XP installation. Unless you are using a PC in a sizable business network, the administrator password is most likely the same password you use to access Windows XP on a daily basis. To the Type the Administrator password request, enter the password and press Enter.
    Note: If you do not have a password or Windows XP normally starts without asking for one, simply press Enter.
  6. Type fixmbr and then press Enter.
  7. The fixmbr utility will write a master boot record to the hard drive that you're currently using to boot into Windows XP. This will repair any corruption or damage that the master boot record may have.
  8. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
    Assuming that a corrupt master boot record was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

Regards.

Hi my everex computer is getting a screen saying windows could not start following file js missing or corrupt:..windiwssystem32configsystem............How do i repair without loosing my downloaded pictures...


Hi, Assuming the OS as XP. Plz follow the below steps.

Yes, you can repair your system,

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.

do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2!
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

Reinstall windows xp


How do I install Microsoft Windows XP. Answer: Below are the steps required to installing the standard version of Microsoft Windows XP. It is important to realize that some computer manufacturers have their own proprietary install of Windows XP on a Recovery or Restore disc. Therefore the below steps may not all apply to how Windows XP is installed on your computer. If the below steps do not apply to how Microsoft Windows XP is installed on your computer and you are unable to correctly reinstall Windows XP it is recommended you contact your computer manufacturer for additional help, Computer Hope will not know how to install Windows using your manufacturers CD.
  1. Before following the below steps see document CH000186 for a checklist of things to consider before erasing the computer and starting over.
  2. The standard Microsoft Windows XP CD is bootable. Therefore start by placing the Windows XP CD in your computer and reboot.
  3. As computer boots you will be prompted to press any key to boot from CD, at this time press any key. If you do not get this prompt or are unable to boot from the CD please refer to document CH000217 for information on how to boot from a CD.
  4. When the Windows XP setup menu appears press ENTER to continue the setup.
  5. Next, the Windows XP licensing agreement will open, if you agree to this agreement press F8.
  6. Next, Windows will give you the option to repair Windows XP or to install a fresh copy if Windows XP is already installed on the computer. If you're wanting to install a new copy of Windows XP press ESC.
  7. Next, the partition setup will appear, it is recommended that if a partition already exists and you do not plan on having multiple operating systems on the computer that you delete the existing partition before continuing the setup. You will know if a partition exists if you see anything other then "Unpartitioned space".

    To delete the partition:
    on the drive that you press D and ENTER then press L to delete the partition and then press ENTER and then if you are aware that this will delete all information on the partition.

    Note: If you have multiple partitions, we suggest deleting all partitions unless you plan on using these partitions. Deleting each of the other partitions can be done using the same above steps.

    To create the partition:
    Select the unpartitioned space you wish to create a partition on and press C, specify the size of the partition in MB, by default this will have the full amount of the drive and press ENTER.

  8. Once you have a partition ready to have Windows XP installed on it press ENTER to install.
  9. Next you will need to select whether the drive will use FAT or NTFS. We suggest NTFS for users who are not sure which file system they wish to use.
  10. After selecting the file system and pressing enter the computer will start formatting the drive. Depending on how big the partition is will determine the length of time the format will take.
  11. After the format Windows will begin installing the files and then take you through a wizard to continue with the remainder of the setup.
Good Luck, Please dont for get to Vote/Thank you.
