We bought a used Asus netbook Eee PC for our kids. Everything was running perfectly and then my 10 year old daughter pressed a few buttons she shouldn't have. Not sure what but now when we try to boot the netbook we receive the NTLDR is missing message. I have tried several things with no success. Since we purchased second hand, we do not have the Windows XP CD. I purchased a repair disc DVD off of eBay but no luck.

I have also used my other laptop to create a DOS startup cd. None of the 10 options worked in regular or safe mode. I have a hard time believing it is a hardware issue as this happened exactly when my daughter got into areas she shouldn't have. Any thoughts? What else can I try? Please help.

Usually this message appears because the bios is not seeing a boot-able device (HD) so either your HD is not seen by your bios or Your boot order has been change and you have the floppy or network as first boot or your boot sector on your HD is corrupt and not readable.

First go into your BIOS and see if your BIOS can detect your HD

Second if HD is detected make sure it is the first boot option in your BIOS

Third if detected and first boot option is your HD then your boot sectotr is probably damage or corrupt.

For the third option you will need an XP cd of the same service pack as you had instaled on your netbook to be able to repair your boot sector.

Here is a link that should help you determine the procedures to take to repair your NTLDR.

Hope that helps
