    I have aquired the game: Medieval II Total War.

    Upon opening the game I only noticed a tech tree and the game manual.

    When attempting to install the game, it asked for a CD Code.

    So I looked inside the manual to find out that the CD Code was on a smaller peice of paper inside the case.

    To my dismay I could not find this little peice of paper with the ever important CD Code.

    Is there any way i can play the game now?

    I'm devestated that I am unable to play the game now.



    -Thank You for your time

  • Stiffler914 Aug 05, 2008

    how is www.megagames.com.au going to help me?

    They're a game trader and dont do patches (or so it appears).

    I'm not computer guy myself, either.

    So i dont know what you mean by copying all the files to the hard drive.

    In short, is there any way to recieve a replacement CD Code?

  • Stiffler914 Aug 08, 2008

    Well i attempted to do what u posted with no luck.

    The Game has 2 disks, will that be a problem?

    I googled the unzip program and unzipped the 3 files that came with the download on the megagames.com website.

    Everything was in the file Game1.

    I didn't know what to click to run the game from there.

    Do i pop the CD in now? or do i click on a component inside the file.

    Thank you for your time and patience.

    It is MUCH appreciated

The CD code key is the code given on new software installation, Usually a orange sticker somewhere on the cover or in the manual. For example for windows 98 the key could be the following.
FT9CH-XVXW7-7BFCM-RPR49-VDHYD, THIS IS ONLY AN EXAMPLE AND NOT ACTUAL CODE! GOOD LUCK!

    Yes you can try and go on on to www.megagames.com.au and look for a patch. Copy all files from CD to harddrive, some files won't work but you there the ones you can patch if avliable. See howyou go!

  • Igor Ceke Aug 06, 2008

    Sorry, I always think people know computers, anyway megagames.com provide you with the ability to run CD without the original codes.

    What you do is go into your my computer, open up the cd and copy all the files and paste them into your c: but make a directory first to copy into.



    • Got to my computer double click on C drive

    • Click on file tab up the top letf hand side of page and click on New and Folder. Then it will highlight the New Fold.

    • Change the name to Game1

    • Now double click on Game1 directory you created

    • Then paste the files you copied earlier. If it some files fail, remember quick ones didn't copy and try and copy the rest in the Game1 directory.
    Once complete copy, go to megagames.com and click on the PC Game Cheats. Then in the second paragraph of the writing the word trainers is highlighted in yellow. Click on trainers.


    Next click on the Letter M, then scroll down and select the number 3. Scroll down to Medievil 2: Total War and double click on it. 2 folders will open, game fixes and trainers. Double click on game fixes.

    The will be several files. Click on any one and try and down load. Follow the instructions and download your selected file. You will need a unzip program to unzip the files into your GAME1 folder. Then once complete you can run the folder and the game will run.
    Download a copy of winrar beta trial version to unzip file
    Double click on file downloaded and ask to extract. Then select C:\game1 and press extract. All done!

    This is the only way to do it unless you want repurchase the game as far as I am aware.


  • Igor Ceke Aug 08, 2008

    From the game1 directory find a setup file or an exe file. But you will need to set your computer to view all hidden files. Firstly go into my computer and open up your GAME1 folder. Click on the Tools tab on top of the page. Select folder options. Then a separate box will open. Select the view tab. Scroll down the list and un tick the following: Hide extensions for known file types
    Also put a dot in front of the show all hidden files and folders. Then press Apply and Ok. Then right click your mouse and select refresh option.
    Now look for any file name ending with " .exe " and double click on it. Hopefully you will have some luck and you'll be able to play your game. Please feel free to ask more questions.

Medieval II Total War, the expansion game to the original?
You need the CD key from the original game.

Your second option is to contact Sega (they are the makers of the game) and explain your problem to them to see what they can do or recommend.

When my computer Start I have seen: Press any key to boot NTLDR is missing Press ctrl+altl+del to re-start How to solve the problem


Check to see if you have a diskette in the disk drive, or a CD in the CDROM. If so, these can make your pc think it has to boot from either device. If either device doesn't have the boot instructions, this error pops up. If you have one or both in your drives, remove them and restart your pc.

On the other hand, if you don't have a diskette or CD in those drives, someone or something may have accidentally erased your boot sector on the hard drive. In that case your data should still be there.

You don't state what your operating system is, so I will believe you have a Microsoft Windows XP or Vista system. If you have an authentic operating system CD, such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7, you can do a "Repair" which will put back all of your boot information to allow the pc to boot normally.

- To do this, you will have to put the Windows CD in the CDROM and restart the PC. It should boot from the CD and you will see it setting itself up. Watch the screen...if you see a message to press any key to boot from CD, just hit a key on your keyboard.

- Once the Welcome screen pops up, you should see an option to setup your operating system as an option. Use your arrow keys to highlight it and press Enter. Do not select any of the other options. You'll have to accept the license agreement to proceed by pressing the F8 key (top row of keys on a standard keyboard).

-Select your operating system you that want to repair by using your arrow keys and press the R key to repair. If your boot information was all that is missing or corrupted you will see your operating system that is already installed.

- You will be required to input the product code for your Windows version to complete this process. The Genuine Microsoft sticker with your product code will be on either the top or side of your pc. Input that code and press Enter.

This process could take quite sometime depending on the computer you have. Once complete, you should get your Windows Updates to make sure you have all of the current ones to keep your pc up to date.

I have seem to have miss place the code for installing the game, so now I am unable to install it


The likelyhood of a gaming company giving you a new CD KEY is slim to none. If the game isn't an online game, a quick google search will probably solve this.

If it is an online game I'd say your up a creek without a paddle. Some companies will give you an option to buy a new cd key (usually cheaper then the game + cd key)without buying everything else

NTOSKRNL.EXE missing


NTLDR is missing  Press Ctrl Alt Del to Restart

----Windows XP users Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key. 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 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.
