Recovering from "NTLDR is missing".

Run the Windows UBCD
Check that the file NTLDR is on the hdd, it will be located on C:\ntldr. If the file is not there replace it with a copy from your original installation disk.

Go -> Programs -> System Tools -> Check Disk

Type C if this is your partition containing the operating system, adjust according if these files are on a different partition ie D, E etc....

Do you want to fix errors .....:
Enter Y

Start check disk?
Enter Y

Then defrag the Hard Drive with Dirms.

Go -> Command prompt
Then type the following
dirms C -q

This will defrag the hard drive, once completed reboot.
Your system should now boot.
