Hi all,

I have a Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 domain controller that doesn´t start after I installed the Microsoft Indexing Server (I installed it from a Windows Server 2003 32-bit CD by mistake) and some Windows updates. I don´t know which of them "broke" Windows but it now gives me a ntldr.exe is missing or corrupt message when it should start booting Windows.
When I log in to the Recovery Console with the Windows CD and write "bootcfg /list" it gives me the following error: "There are currently no boot entries available to display." How should I do to fix this problem?

Silly question - is there a floppy in the A drive?

I had already fixed it when you posted but I´m still going to accept your solution :)
bootcfg /rebuild was the solution.
boot.ini had "disappeared" from C:\ for some reason. "dir *.ini" at C:\ didn´t find anything.
When I typed in bootcfg /list it gave me: There are currently no boot entries available to display.
