When i try to start up my laptop, i get a black screen that says "NTLDR" is missing" and "press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" when I restart it, the same screen just reappears. I've also tried pressing F11 to...


The file can be copied from different computer using the same operating system and same version..It can only be done if you can hook up your hardisk from that computer and make it as slave...go to search file and search for the NTLDR file and its directory. copy the file and save it to the same directory of your hardisk slave. If file copying is successful, disconnect your hardisk from that computer and connect it to your laptop, then try to boot.

If that did not work, you can repair your missing file by running your windows installer. Make your cd rom as first booting device and run the setup of windows, when prompted, press F8.. follow some instructions. After searching previous windows system press R key to repair the system.. The set up will restart your unit once its complete.

i hope i help you with this...

much appreciated if you rate this solution..thnaks.

Compressed boot manager


Windows Vista includes a new Boot Manager (BootMgr) that replaces the old NT Loader (Ntldr).

If the boot partition no longer can be found, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information

More Info MS KB 919529
More Info MS KB 927391

This can usually be solved by checking the boot devices, and if no problems found then use Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair".

If by accident having compressed the entire boot partition, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is compressed. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
This can usually be solved by using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". If that fails then use WinRE to enter the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands:
  • compact /U C:\bootmgr
  • compact /U C:\ntldr
