How do I deal with


When I try to boot my system I get an error message "missing

ntldr" and then the system stops. I can still boot up using

the CD_ROM and getting to the Recovery Console. How do I get this file back using the Recovery Console.

Hi: ntldr is one of 3-5 NT system files located on the root of the boot drive (usually C:) It has probably been accidently deleted To fix this simply copy ntldr from another system or a boot floppy to your c: drive.
