Your boot registry has become corrupted. Reinstall windows from the disk, selecting the disk as master boot in boot up sequence in the bios settings. Goodluck and let me know if this resolved it for you.

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.

Windows goes off with the msg 'NTLDR is missing'


NTLDR errors are usually caused by defective RAM on the motherboard. Try removing one of the RAM sticks on your board and see if computer works fine. If still gets error msg, swap the RAM stick and try again to narrow down which stick is faulty. Sometimes, its simply some corrosion on the RAM contacts which in that case, you only need to re-seat the sticks.

If NTLDR is missing, you will need to do one of two things:

1) follow this link and follow instructions to create a NTLDR boot disc and get back up and running

or

2) boot to Windows CD and repair Windows installation

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

What is NTLDR


Hi,

NTLDR is short for New Technology Loader, an essential initializing program for Windows.NT4/2k/XP.

A missing NTLDR indicates several fault possibilities, most common are:
1. partially defective memory;
2. corrupt files or Windows installation in the boot hard disk; and/or
3. IDE cable, motherboard, the hard disk itself and others.

If it is a memory problem, try removing the memory sticks and clean the gold pins with a pencil eraser, re-install and make sure seated correctly. Reboot and try again.

If it is a corrupt file, insert an OEM Windows XP Installer (bootable) CD into the PC and when prompted, press any key to boot from CD. Once in the setup menu, press the "R" key to repair Windows. Log into by pressing "1" key and then enter.
You would need your administrator password, then hit enter. You need to copy the missing file(s) from the CD to your HD. Type :
copy D:\i386\ntldr C:\
copy D:\i386\ntdetect.com D:\
Soon as copied, reboot.

If thereafter, other files turn out to be missing also, perhaps you might be better off formatting your HD and re-installing your OS since chances are not only 1 or 2 files are already corrupt.

In some cases, even a re-install will not solve the problem, you then may either have to replace your memory or your hard disk.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turn out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
