When you start your computer there should be a message that flashes across the top of the screen which says 'Press F11 for emergency recovery'. Press the F11 key and you will be asked some questions regarding whether you want to back up your hard drive before recovering to initial settings. If you have important files on the computer I would suggest backing up your files. They will be placed in a special folder on your hard drive labeled Backup.

After you have successfully recovered your OS, you can go to Start - All Programs - Recovery and Back up -- then there should be a selection to burn recovery disks. I recommend doing this for future use.

Explanation: The reason you were not given setup disks when you purchased your computer is because your hard drive is oem, which means it already has the operating system preinstalled, all you have to do is setup the administrator and user accounts in order to be able to use the computer. With an oem hard drive, emergency recovery does the same thing as reinstalling the operating system. However, it is always a good idea to have disks made so you have an additional resource for recovering your computer.

NTLDR missing on XP desktop


NTLDR is the boot loader for windows XP. This is the part the kick starts the entire process of XP loading. It is located at C:\NTLDR One of the easier ways to fix this is Either boot in to the recover console from a Windows XP disc, or download Hiren Boot CD, burn it to a disc. Insert the CD into your Dell and reboot the computer. Note you may need to enter BIOS and enable boot to CD/DVD. Once at the Hiren menu, select Boot Mini XP. Once the Mini XP loads you can copy NTLDR loader from the mini xp to your C:\ drive. Then remove the disc and reboot the computer.

NTLDR is missing,.i also have no discs for backup,.therefore,.what do i buy to run and fix prob? thx


When your computer starts, the "BIOS" attempts to find the primary hard drive's active partition to read the first sector for the "Master Boot Record", it uses that info to load the rest of the OS. For Windows NT4/2k/XP the MBR is pointed to the NTLDR (New Technology Loader). If the BIOS looked at the wrong drive or the wrong partition, if the partition wasn't active, if the MBR was damaged, or the MBR didn't list NTLDR in the right place, or the location of NTLDR changed, if the system was not yet fully setup, or if you had a hardware failure in one of the connections (cable, drive, motherboard), or if your hard drive got erased, you'd get the error.
You can find complete solution at http://tinyempire.com/notes/ntldrismissing.htm without buying any software.

Computer crashed and says "Missing NTLDR." I have


Hello, before you do anything drastic, my computer crashed and on reboot said the same thing. After panicking (and a cup of tea), I found the bios had defaulted to booting from the wrong disk. All was ok after I set the bios back to boot from the correct disk again.
Hope this helps!
best wishes,

Installed a ASUS A8N5X motherboard and it go through bios and stops and then it tells me that NTLDR is missing . How do I fix this Thank you.


How to solve NTLDR is missing in windows XP issue
Using Windows recovery console. The Windows 2000 and Windows XP CDs supplied by Microsoft has a tool called the Recovery Console which can be used to repair errors that prevent Windows XP from starting using the command line. OEM versions of Windows XP, including computers that were supplied with Windows XP preinstalled, may not have this utility. This problem may occur if the basic input/output system (BIOS) on your computer is outdated, or if one or more of the following Windows boot files are missing or damaged: Ntldr
Ntdetect.com
Boot.ini
Check your drives for floppy,USB storage devices,CDs and any other bootable media.Because sometmes these things makes problems.Then go to BIOS and do the BIOS settings to boot from the source where the OS is installed. 1: Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer. 2: When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
3: Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
4: Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key(most of the cases it will be "1" only) and pressing enter.
5: You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. 6: From the command prompt, copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the i386 folder of the CD to the root folder of the hard drive. In the example commands given below, C: is the hard drive and D: is the CD-ROM drive. You will need to change the drive letters if appropriate:
COPY D:I386NTLDR C:
COPY D:I386NTDETECT.COM C:

Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.
