NTLDR missing is typical of Windows not findind some system files during the boot, I believe nothing wrong with the hardware.

First enter in the BIOS and be sure that in the boot device list you have the CD or DVD before the HDD.
Second Boot the PC from CD with the Windows CD and try to repair the Windows installation.

To enter the BIOS Setup Utility, do as follows: 1. Turn on the computer. 2. When the Lenovo logo comes up, immediately press F2 to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.Note: If the customer has set a supervisor password, the BIOS Setup Utility menu appears after the password is entered. If the customer has set a user password, you can start the utility by entering that password; however, you cannot change all of the parameters.

Please let me know if you need more support.

Best regards

Hi wdlcr,

First, check the boot drives to make sure that the computer is not trying to boot from a different drive to the one that contains 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.
Second,
• try to boot to safe MODE by pressing F8 while the system is starting up - if the system loads normally on safemode back up your files to a flash drive and restore everything to factory via OKR.

(If this will not work) go to the BIOS ( F1 ) and check if the HDD is detected. IF the HDD is not detected - then HDD is damage.

IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE ON THIS and YOU ARE IN WARRANTY - You can contact Lenovo Consumer Support at 877-453-6686 and they will assist you for setup/troubleshooting and repair.

Hope this helps!
Good Luck!!

Thank you for using Fixya!

NTLDR is missing is displayed when i turn on the computer


The "NTLDR is missing", error displays very shortly after the computer is first started; after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP might only initially load when the NTLDR error message appears. Causes of this error message include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.
Get more help and information for Windows XP hope this helps you.

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.

NTLDR is missing in my computer


Missing NTLDR can be caused by any one of these problems :-

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32.
New hard disk drive being added.
Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.
Failing to enable USB keyboard support in the BIOS

With Windows XP follow these instructions
  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 and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

If this doesn't work, then the last resort is to install Windows again, plus the computers device drivers and your programs.

NTLDR missing


I can get into the Boot First Screen but can't seem to change anything within it... These screens seems to be selectively responsive to my key presses.... I can get the bios screen up, boot order screen up but not necessarily do anything within them... e.g. I can't restart the pc using ctrl alt del when the missing NTLDR message appears.... also I have put an XP disc in and it says to press any key to BOOT from CD .... I Do so but obviously it doesn't recognise it so it gives me the missing NTLDR message again! :(

Ntldr


First check your bios & make sure it see's your hard drive & it's setup correctly. If it is there could can be other reasons for the missing NTLDR.
Suggest you take you Windows CD and boot to it. If your CD does not boot. Re-start the PC & start pressing the F8 key every two seconds. This will bring up a boot menue. Choose your cdrom drive.
Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. Copy these two files to you Hd. copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
Replace the drive letter listed above for your cdrom's drive letter.
Once copy has been complete re-boot your Pc.
If you still get missing NTLDR. Do a complete reinstall of windows. Your personal data should stay intact.
Please post back if this has not fixed missing NTLDR, there are more fix's that can be applied. I only listed the most common.
