Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Spotmau is a great program and not only for recovery so It's a great choice! However I had the same problem with booting. (I'm using Windows XP as well)
Here is what I did and I hope it will help you: 1. You will need to get an extra harddrive. 2. Boot and install XP on the harddrive. 3. Have both drives installed on your CPU. 4. Using Spotmau copy the recovered data from one drive to the other. 5. Boot the drive in the traditional fashion (data will now be lost). 6. Copy the data. on the fresh drive.
Hope this helps, Traian

When you start your computer, you receive the error message "NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart."Cause
The error message "NTLDR is missing" means that the Windows boot loader (NT Loader, NTLDR) cannot be found. This oftenoccurs when the computer tries to boot from a drive other than the one Windows is installed on, due to a change in the driveconfiguration or because you left a bootable disk in a removable drive. But it may also be because the NTLDR file has beencorrupted or deleted.SolutionCheck the boot drives
First, check the boot drives to make sure that the computer is not trying to boot from a different drive to the one thatcontains Windows.
If this does not resolve the problem, you will have to repair the NT boot loader.Fix NTLDR
The easiest way to fix the "NTLDR is missing" error is to use Spotmau PowerSuite.However, if your computer is using Windows XP and you have a Windows XP installation CD you may be able to boot from this anduse the Recovery Console to fix NTLDR manually instead.Use Spotmau PowerSuiteInsert the Spotmau PowerSuite CD and start the computer. The main menu will appear.
The tool will repair the file and report "NTLDR and NTDETECT have been recovered successfully."
