  1. Hi,

    I've been trying to fix this for ages after scouring the internet to no avail!
    I had 2 partitions on my hard drive - C and D.
    C had windows 64 and D has XP
    I reformatted C and installed windows 7 in it. Now when I start my PC I get the NTLDR is missing error.
    I can boot to W7 if I keep the disc in but don't have the XP disc.
    I understand boot.ini is not used in W7 - so how do I fix??

    thx in advance
