I had just used it the day before and everything was fine but when I tried to start it up it went through normal boot just fine but just befroe it started up windows on the bottom of the boot screen it said "NTLDR is Missing, Press Ctrl Alt Delete to restart". I restarted but I got the same message and my computer wouldn't continue to Windows Xp. What can I do to fix this? Please help!

Windows 7 with Gigabyte motherboard says "ntldr is missing"


Check if UEFI is disabled after flash with newer BIOS version. If you flash BIOS the default settings gets loaded again. Check hard disk settings and boot settings.

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.
Get more help and information for Windows XP hope this helps you.

Ntldr is missing press clt alt del to restart


The NTLDR and Ntdetect.com files are important system files that are used by your computer to start the Windows XP operating system. These files can become damaged, corrupted or deleted for a number of reasons and are usually brought to your attention by the "NTLDR is Missing" error message. 

Follow these easy steps to restore the damaged/corrupted or missing NTLDR and Ntdetect.com files from the Windows XP CD using the Recovery Console. 

Time Required: Restoring the NTLDR and Ntdetect.com files from the Windows XP CD usually takes less than 15 minutes

Here's How:

Boot your system  using a Windows XP CD, press any key when the windows display "press any key to boot from CD"and wait for some time, select "r" option to go to recovery console. it will ask you for administrator password too.

When you reach the command prompt type the following two commands, pressing Enter after each one: 
copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy d:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

In the command listed above, d represents the drive letter assigned to the optical drive that your Windows XP CD is currently in. While this is most often d, your system could assign a different letter. Also, c:\ represents the root folder of the partition that Windows XP is currently installed on. Again, this is most often the case but your system could be different. 

If you're prompted to overwrite either of the two files, press Y. 

Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC. 

Assuming that missing or corrupt versions of the NTLDR and/or Ntdetect.com files were your only issues, Windows XP should now start normally.

That's it.

"NTLDR is missing" message on boot-up.


That message appears when Windows cannot boot. You may run a repair using your Windows CD. Just start your PC with the CD in the drive and follow the choices in the screen.Remember select REPAIR, not Install, as you will end loosing all your files.

What is NTLDR


NT Loader (NTLDR) is a small piece of software loaded from the boot sector of your primary hard drive that helps your operating system start.

If you have multiple operating systems installed and properly configured, NTLDR will show a boot menu when your PC starts, allowing you to choose which operating system to start.


Thanks for using FIxya

NTLDR is compressed


Try this:
Insert the Windows CD (the oryginal one) into the CDrom drive, and restart tyour PC. When the compter bootsagain select an option that are required to start the computer from the CD if you are asked to do so. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. When prompted type "1" or if you have a multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER. Now you should be at the comman prompt and ready to repair the ntldr file. Now all you need to do is enter the following commands (in order) and each command on a new line just like you see them here:
cd \
attrib -c ntldr
exit
The PC should reboot now and everything should work just fine.
