After Windows update NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM, and BOOT.INI are all missing
Posted on 2008-10-03
Hello, I have just started rolling out Windows updates to my clients after several Months of Having our WSUS server out of commission. I tested the updates however now that we have approved them all for install we are seeing random problems with some PC's. Mostly Dell GX745's but also I have seen it on some other models as well. The system will work fine until it gets rebooted. then it says that it can not find NTLDR. Upon replacing these files from a boot disk, or recovery console. I find that both NTDETECT.com and Boot.ini are missing as well. Has anyone else had this trouble. If so were you able to attribute this to any one update, or problem that could be worked around? I hate being reactive to this kind of thing when I should have been proactive when avoiding it.
Thanks in advance.
