You need to either reinstall windows, or take the hard drive out, hook it up as a spare drive to a working computer and copy NTDLR to the root of the laptop hard drive. It would be much easier to reinstall windows. You can always use the recovery portion of Windows, but if I were you I would just do a format and reinstall. NTDLR is just a startup file for Windows XP, that does not mean your hard drive is gone or anything. Please don't forget to rate!..Thanks
The problem is caused by Formatting the HDD in Vista before moving back to the system.
Simplest fix, hook it back to the Vista system and delete the partition from the drive in disk management. Once that is done, then put the drive with no partition in the XP system and boot to the XP CD, create a new partition and install XP
1.Make sure the hard drive is installed correct and the bios found it. 2.In bios you have to put the cd/dvd as first boot and the hdd at second. 3.Load the original windows xp disk and restart saving changes in bios. 4.When prompt to pres any key do so. 5.Continue setup as new install. (if a miss one excuse as im thinking the step) a.Enter continue b.F8 I agree c.d delete d.enter sure e.L delete f. C create partition g.Enter create h.Enter Install I.NTFS Quick Enter
