Question

cannot boot new computer. message reads TLDR missing

Answer

This question was answered on January 21, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Often a user will see the message "NTLDR is Missing" after attempting to install Windows 2000 or Windows XP, or upgrade a Windows 95-based or Windows 98-based computer to Windows 2000 or Windows XP The message appears after the first reboot This occurs only if Windows 95 or 98 has been installed on a drive with the FAT32 file system

To correct the problem, you must boot the computer with a Windows 95 or 98 Startup diskette or another bootable diskette with sys.com on it Then, at the "A:\>" prompt, type "sys c:" and press "enter." A "System Transferred" prompt should appear and then the user must reboot the computer without the diskette
