NTLDR is missing..

Sometimes.. It is very common to see such missing or file corrupt for windows..
Just dont be panic.. everythings can be solved...
Most serious ma just FORMAT LOL..
That why, at least.. 2 partition will be made whenever I do the formatting..
1st Partition only store the Windows and Software..
No important data will store..
Which mean, My Document folder I wont use at all..
2nd partition will store all the important and personal data..
So.. when the main Windows file system corrupt..
Personal data at 2nd partition still safe..

Therefore.. when say whatever file is missing.. no harm.. just repair the windows whatever you like..
For this problem..

NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

What does NTLDR means and the function.. can be found at here
When this message appear after boot the windows..
What you need to do are:

1. Put OS Cd to the CD-ROM and boot into the CD.
2. Then enter to the repair mode which you need press "R".
3. Then you will require to choose which Windows to repair.. Choose "1" which is the main Windows.
4. It will require your Windows Administrator Passwords.. If you have then keyin, else just press "Enter".

Then you will enter the repair mode.. At here, you needs:

1. Run this 2 command..
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ c:\
2. exit the repair mode and reboot.

After reboot, you will able to login to the Windows.. Then do some checking on the boot.ini file is it still at there or deleted. This file is located at:
Control Panel > System > Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Settings > System startup

If still exist, check the file is correct or not.. check the boot sequence is it Windows XP Pro/Home as main boot loader.

If not exist anymore..
Then just Edit and create a new boot.ini file.
Add this value into the file.

For Windows XP Professional:
[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

For Windows XP Home:
[Boot loader]
[operating system]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect

After do the changes on boot.ini.. Restart the Windows..
To make sure does the problem still exist or not...
For more info on boot.ini and the tuning.. Mayb can refer to here and here
