NTLDR Windows XP

To repair this issue you need to have a Windows XP CD.

  1. First you need to boot from the Windows CD
  2. Once at the first “welcome” screen, press R to enter the Recovery Console
  3. Press the number of the Windows install you would like to repair (ie 1)
  4. Type in your Administrator password if there is one, if not press Enter.
  5. Now we need to copy two files from the Windows CD to your Windows install folders, type in the commands below:
  6. copy d:I386ntldr C: (Press Enter)
  7. copy d:I386ntdetect.com C: (Press Enter)
  8. Type: exit

Your computer will now restart, remove the Windows CD and you should now have a bootable Windows installation.
