Hello,


So, I was trying to clear out some room with add/remove programs and like an idiot i must have accidentally deleted something i shouldn't have. a window popped up that said to restart the computer so i did and i got the "ntldr is missing" message. ive had this once before on my computer and simply used the full system restore to return my pc to its factory made condition, so i figured i could just do that on his. However, his computer doesnt have an option to do this from the boot menu like mine so i have been looking online all day for a way around this. I found Bart PE and Ghost which at least got me by the NTLDR is missing message but i cant figure out what to do now. Every site i go to tell you how to make the discs but wont tell you what to do once you get it on hahahaha......it's very very annoying. So i guess my question is simply how can i use ghost or bart pe to restore my brothers computer?
Thank you soooooooooooooooooo much

here is the fix

Windows XP users

1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "c." This letter may be different on your computer.

copy c:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy c:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.
