Hi all,

I got a VMware esx3i the free version which is without support.

Anyway we had a power outage in our office and we use a microsof domain AD and the our ESX Server went down. We now use UPS so we are OK for the future.

Unfortunately one of the VM machine which is a netbackup server (Windows Server 2003) doesn't boot anymore we get "ntldr corrupt cannot boot".

I do not want to install the netbackup server from scratch as we had important configuration settings and the vtl software installed.

I do not know how to get this solved. I am not really a top microsoft guy and also this is a VM machine.

There is anyway that we can repair ntldr? If yes how shall I do so? Could anyone instruct me?
