Question about Computers & Internet
I was reformatting my PC's hard drive. The reformatting process was not too long when a blue screen with white text appeared which said check the hard drive configuation, check any updated drivers and run chkdsk /f to check for hard drive corruption then re start the PC.
I re-started my PC and while booting hold down the F8 key in order to go to the DOS command prompt so that I could check the hard drive if it is corrupted. Unfortunately, it did not work, instead a message appears which said NTDLR is missing press control alt delete to restart. I did it but the same thing was happened.
Could anybody give me advice regarding this problem? Thank you very much.

Hopefully you are using Windows XP. For fixing it up you need Windows CD and a CDROM Drive of your computer. Set First Boot Device to CDROM and Boot your computer using windows xp cd. Let the cd load all the drivers and when welcome screen comes. press "R" to enter recovery console.
Here it will search the operating systems located on your disk and a list will appear. Choose the Correct Location and enter administrator password. Copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from I386 Folder on the CD to C:\(assuming C:\ is your BOOT Drive). It will ask you to overwrite, say "y". Run "chkdsk /p" to verify drive integrity. To verify boot.ini config type "Bootcfg /list" on the prompt. After Completing this type exit. Your System will reboot.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
this will erase you operating system you have to have a operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)
hope this helps
