Hi I have been looking around and the following suggestion was made to me about Iso2USB .. It may be defective

Another programme was recommended to create a USB OTLPE

You already have the OTLPE iso extracted so there is no need to repeat that section

Download Peazip to the desktop
Run and install the programme
As it installs this page will show, deselect the AVG ticks
Press decline and it will then install cleanly

Posted Image

Download the following files to the desktop .. Right click the links and select save as...then select desktop

Rufus

OTLPE_standard

Right click OTLPE on your desktop and select ..Open as archive

Posted Image


Select OTLPE standard

Posted Image

Click Extract, ensure that desktop is selected

Posted Image

Insert the USB stick Then run Rufus
Posted Image
Select the ISO file on the desktop via the ISO icon.

Press Start Burn

Once the USB has burnt then

[*]Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to the flash drive.

  • Reboot your system using the boot USB you just created.
    Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from USB follow the steps here
  • As the Programme needs to detect your hardware and load the operating system, I would recommend a nice cup of tea whilst it loads :)
  • Your system should now display a Reatogo desktop.
  • Locate the flash drive and run FSRT
  • The tool will start to run.

  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.

Is it still coming up with the NTLDR problem ? It is beginning to look like this is a job for the repair shop I am afraid, as none of my tools are producing meaningful answers

Hi
Ye it is still showing that message.

A friend had a very quick look and he reckoned the hard drive is gone. Could this be true? Is a replacement one expensive?

That is a possibility but we would be unable to run the tools to determine that

As for price they are relatively cheap http://www.dabs.com/...rd-drives/11154
