NTLDR is missing on start up-How to solve It?
I shut down the computer yesterday, today when I started it it will run till the windows boot screen, when the bar reaches the end the screen will stay black and nothings happens. I tried to boot in safe mode but after loading the drivers it just stays there as well and wont go on with the boot. I wanted to repair the system with the Windows XP CD-ROM but I'm not given the option to repair. After it starts all the devices needed, i'm presented with the partitions I have on my PC to choose in which to install windows, if I pick one I can format and install or just install.Is there a way to run a repair or a scandisk to try and solve the blue screen of death when start up problem ?
When come across blue screen of death on start up caused by such as BOOTMGR is missing on start up , the first thing we do is find a way to repair windows.
Your last resort is the Windows XP CD which has a very useful tool called Recovery Console.
First boot from the Windows XP CD by inserting it in the optical drive and rebooting the computer. You will see the standard Windows XP setup screen loading - proceed till you come to the Welcome to the Setup menu.
Hit R to start up the Recovery Console and press the corresponding number to select the operating system (usually 1 if you only have a single operating system) you wish to repair.
At this point you will be expected to enter the administrator password.
The partition boot sector and the master boot record are essential for Windows to boot. If they become damaged by virus or configuration changes, windows won't start up.
Fixing the partition boot sector is easy as the built-in fixboot utility will help you write a new partition boot sector and overwrite the existing one which should solve any damage to this part of the system.
Type "fixboot" and press Enter and wait for the process to complete before you restart the system.
If you suspect the master boot record is also damaged then you can also fix it through another command - Fixmbr.
If you have only one drive, type "Fixmbr\Device\HardDisk0" and this should do the trick.
