Hi,

If you are using recovery CDs, with or without the NTLDR present in the HD should work. Perhaps what is needed is for you to set the laptop to boot from the CD. This could be done in the CMOS/BIOS configuration.

Alternately, if only the NTLDR is missing and everything else works OK, you can try removing the HD from the PC and connect it as a slave or an external USB mass storage device to a 2nd PC. It will be a simple case of copying the 2nd PC's NTLDR to the HD missing it.

In some instances, memory problem triggers this message as well. You can try cleaning the memory's little gold contacts/pins and/or try replacing them.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Ntldr missing


If you press F11 as you power up, it should find the restore partition.
I would place an OS disc of the same type installed on your laptop and run repair system.

Bootmgr is missing


Bootmgr is the replacement for NTLDR in Vista and Win 7. NTLDR (NT loader) is the OS component which literally started the operating system in XP/2000. In the past I have had to use recovery console to go in and repair the OS (this is only available on the Windows disc). I would say in this case you will have to do the same, repair the operating system using the Windows disc.

This article is a how-to on fixing this issue, if you up for it:

You have tried all possible solutions and troubleshooting.

My Suggestion is to check the Warranty of the Hard Disk and get it replaced. this possible shows a mismatch between the Laptop and hard drive.

How To: Fix "NTLDR is missing"

Applies to: Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP

Symptoms

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.

  • Check that there are no CDs or DVDs in the CD/DVD drives.
  • Check that no removable drives are plugged in to the USB ports.
  • Check the boot order in the BIOS Setup to ensure that the computer boots from the drive containing Windows before any other bootable devices.

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.spotmau-2.gif
  • Click 2. Windows Recovery.
spotmau-2-1.gif
  • When the Windows Recovery tool starts, click Windows NT/2000/XP/2003.
spotmau-2-1-1a.gif
  • On the Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 Recovery dialog, click Recover NTLDR and NTDETECT.

  • On the Recover NTLDR and NTDETECT dialog, select your operating system (e.g. Windows XP) and then click Recover.

The tool will repair the file and report "NTLDR and NTDETECT have been recovered successfully."

  • Remove the Spotmau PowerTools CD from the drive and click Restart to reboot the computer.

Acer aspire one error in oxf0000005 / NTLDR is missing


That is a windows error. You can try booting off the original installation CD and choose option for fix current installation, but chances are 50.50 if it will work or not. NTLDR is the bootmanager for Windows NT based systems (Windows NT, 2000, XP, etc). Critical system file, typically protected against altering.

The error code you gave is usually associated with windows having issues seeing / using a SATA drive. You will likely have to find the driver for our particular SATA controller, and load it when prompted as you startup off the recovery disk.

Black screen NTDLR Press any key to restart


Are you saying it came with a recovery disk that you dont have anymore. If thats the case you may need to aquire this from acer. If you go to their web site you can usually find a way to order this disc for your machine.
Find someone who has an xp disc and use it to go to recovery console then restore MBR files. NTLDR is the error meaning your master boot record has been damaged.

Recovery cd for acer aspire 3000


The "NTLDR is missing" error can sometimes occur when the boot.ini file is corrupt or missing but in your case it sounds like the HardDrive is the problem.

Try the Following:
Start>Run>Type "Cmd" and enter>Type "dir c:" and enter>Type "chkdsk" and enter. Your computer might promote you to chkdsk later Press "Y" and restart you computer

The Acer Aspire series usually have a eRecovery manager than ables you to burn 2 recovery disk which you should have done when you first got the laptop. Since you haven't done that you'll have to buy new recovery CD/DVD
From:
http://www.user-guides.co.uk/asp/product.asp?product=1241&ph=search&keywords=Acer,Aspire,Recovery,CD&recor=1&SearchFor=any&PT_ID=100



OR you can try the following.

Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Choose a restore point that goes back to before your NTLDR problem started.

Please Rate, Thanks.

Acer 5520 notebook startup issues


You are missing the file NTLDR.exe and NTKRNL.exe. NTLDR is the first file your computer sees when it is booting up and it brings up other files to get your computer started then it turns it over to Windows file called NTKTRNL which actually brings up the Windows operating system. The only wayto fix is to find a Windows disc and copy them over to three folders that you have either win32, windows or winnt. Copy to all three if you see all three buy only one of those starts your system and it seems like it's win32 based on your error, folder under your C: drive. That will solve your problem and your computer will boot up normally.

Ntldr missing


You need to do full system recovery to boot up your pc again. NTLDR is a hidden file that is needed to boot windows. Your laptop should come with a recovery disc to re install Windows.
Hope this helps.
