  1. hello all... here again with a NTLDR error this time.. so ill explain it.


    i restarted my computer after installing firefox and scanning my computer for viruses and adwere ect ect

    i get the NTLDR is missing error and its saying press Ctrl+Alt+delete to restart

    after hitting the commands it brings me back to the same screen, so i put in the os disk to repair the boot problem, how when i hit the f8 button to go the selectable boots, i get a beeping sound from my tower,


    OS- Xphome
    computer - dell dimension 2300 basic

    edit: i wanted to know if i could take a secound HD and connect it 2 the computer witht he NTLDR error and copy over the files...

    how did you try to fix the NTLDR problem?

    Did you use the OS CD and try the following?

    *X is the location of your optical drive.

    COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C:
    COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:

    or just type FIXBOOT at the command prompt?
