Here is my quick tip to fix “NTLDR is Missing” error on Windows XP:
- Boot the computer with a bootable CD or floppy that can read and write the C:\ drive. I recommend you to use BartPE as it’s a very easy and usefull tool to fix windows offline.
- Download NTLDR is Missing.zip, extract and save the 3 files into your C:\ drive.
- You may need to modify the boot.ini file to fit your need. 99% chance you won’t need to change it
- Restart your computer … and Done
You can also use Windows XP bootable CD and then select Repair and use the Recovery Console to copy the 3 files (ntldr, ntdetect.com and boot.ini) back to your C:\
However, Recovery Console will ask you the Administrator’s password before you can get inside it. Don’t worry in case you need help with the password, you can read How to Reset Windows XP Administrator Password for help
