Hello,

I have a PC that cannot boot, it says NTLDR file missing. I have some very critical data there, actually a database which I need to recover. what is the best way around this.

I have tried the HP back up and recovery but I can't see the database inside the folder, I have thought of mounting the harddisk on to another PC but how would that help as the OS which is faulty was installed on the hard disk.

I am now thinking of a repair of the OS. For those well versed in this field, kindly help in this.

If you connect the corrupt hard drive as a slave drive to a computer that you can login to windows you should be able to copy over the file. Once you have connected the hard drive look for the file and copy it to the working hard drive.

If the corrupt hard drive is connect by using PATA-IDE you will need to set the jumper on the drive so that it is in the slave option. If you are using SATA you should be able to just connect it directly to one of the SATA ports on the motherboard.

Hope this helps.
