    NTLDR missing-Sensational quick solution

    NTLDR missing-Warning during start/booting.
    Windows-not starting!
    Supergau-No-There are workarounds.
    Have found a superquick solution-Hope its working in general.
    Why happend this to me: Have my PC-motherboard outside case. When running i moved the motherboard and
    PC shut down.
    1. Tried with Windows(here Winxp)-CD Repair-console but it said no drive.... was changing
    boot-sequence the quick way with startupmenue.
    2. Went into CMOS-setup but didnt change anything.
    3. Restarted PC and BINGO starting again.
    If not working there is a second also rather quick solution.
    NTLDR missing-problem has multiple solutions. one is copying system data from CD to windows-folder.
    Very quick solution-if entry-solution is not working is this:
    If you have a second (same OS)windows-system, attach nonworking boot-drive to that PC as second
    drive-NOT AS BOOT-DRIVE!
    It will start again.
    Can also be on a friends pc. Maybe it will even work if you stop boot-procedures halfway.

    Make a cd from a working PC with NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM and Boot.ini on it.

    Then when you get the error, boot to this cd and you will boot to windows.
    Now replace the ones in windows with those from the cd.

    A bad shutdown will corrupt those on the hdd. And this is how I replaced them. They are hidden files!

    ok will take a look.
    will your tip of creating a cd with special system-files also working with win7 or is it only winxp-related?
