    I was upgrading from windows 95 to 2000 and everything was going fine. I didn't choose ntfs for the file system figuring the hard drive was too old. all the files were copying and when the system rebooted it gives me an error message saying: NTLDR is missing press any key to continue and when I press a key it says trying to boot from cd rom and then nothing happens except I get the message about missing NTLDR. I can't go further is there a work around? What is NTLDR . How can I restore it? Can I go back to Windows 95? Please help. It is a stand alone unit. It isn't on a network.

    you should have chosen ntfs, there is a fix but if I were you I would just do it again and choose ntfs

    you sure your 2000 disc is okay?

    I wouldn't recommend upgrading from Windows 95, but doing a clean install. Format the drive to NTFS and start over.

    As for NRLDR... I can't remember what that is....

    I can&#39;t restart the setup, everytime I try to get to the C: prompt, it gives me the NTLDR error.

    in your bios change the boot order to cd first (before your HD)
    then boot to cd and follow the directions
    remember to choose compleat reformat and ntfs

    boot to cd and try to run setup again, and then choose repair or it may give you a message that it was not complete and it will continue. NTLDR is what starts the operating system in NT

    Ok this is a quote from another forum I don&#39;t know if it works as I don&#39;t run XP :-


    XP - ntldr missing

    i get this message upon booting a pc. i can boot the same pc if i have my xp pro disk in though.
    When i go to use the recovery console it askes for a password..as far as i know one was never
    given, so how do i access the recovery console to fix the ntldr prob?

    or is there an easier way to fix the boot record? or how can i copy the duplicate boot records made
    when windows was installed? thanks


    I sympathise with you guys, co&#39;s i know how u feel with the missing file..I was having the same
    peoblem before visiting here, only to get nothing to save my pc from crashing, I&#39;m here just to
    provide a one time solution to recovering from the missing file. Boot to the repair console with your
    XP cd on the drive.
    1. Copy X:&#092;i386&#092;NTLDR C: (X is your CD ROM drive)
    2. Copy X:&#092;i386&#092;NTDETECT.COM C:
