NTLDR Missing error on Windows Server 2008

I am pre-asking this question to get as much information as possible before having to drive 3 hours to get on-site to one of our locations where we have a server down.

It is a Windows Server 2008 Server that serves as the PDC, DHCP, and DNS Server

Upon boot, the NTLDR Missing error message.

I know to boot to a Recover Console and run....
bootrec.exe /FixMbr
bootrec.exe /FixBoot
bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd

Can anyone provide me with any other possible solutions, other than reload. ???

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

In Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista and Windows 7,
NTLDR has been replaced by Windows Boot Manager and winload.exe

Was the server upgraded from XP or Win2003 Server? Or was it installed with a partition that was booted from Win XP/Win2k3?

You can use the Fix Startup Environment option or use the Recovery Environment and manually run the Bootrec /fixboot command

Ok.
I apologize, but I was told this was Server 2008.
Come to find out it was not.
Everything then made perfect sense.  The server cutoff abnormally.

I just corrected the issue here with a chkdsk from Recovery Console.

Sorry for the confusion, but I was a little confused myself with this mis-information I was given.
