I need a few answer please! I just started having this problem with my PC. My PC wouldn't boot and I received a message missing NTLDR. I when to this site and I saw that someone else had this problem also I did what they suggested copying the two files. when I tried to reboot I received a diff message about Ini file and it suggested that I install windows root system32hal dll I tried and I was denied access. My question is if I install a new hard drive and install windows xp fresh will this problem go away or is a BIOS problem? I can only start my computer now if I boot from the xp disk. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi onelife...

Depending on the type of XP installation cd you have, the repair install will usually resolve the problem.

Try this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's

Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.
