Question about Computers & Internet
When you have this error "NTLDR is missing" in Windows it means that your boot tables have been completely wiped outand the only solution is that you reinstall the operating system again. If you were using Windows Vista or Windows 7 you will be able to get a folder in your new freshly installed Windows called "Windows.old" and you will be able to have access to some extent of your old Windows file.
