i have an asus eee pc 900 and my ntldr is missing i followed these steps It's not a problem. And no, you don't have to be technical to participate here. If you have any questions, it's always best to stop and ask.

For future reference it's known as a USB flash drive. USB stands for Universal Serial Bus- it's a kind of connection port used on newer computers. But 'stick' works too.

So let's try and make this a little more simple. I'll give you step-by-step directions. What we're going to do it put some information on a USB flash drive, then tell the computer to go to the flash drive first, instead of the hard drive. The info on the flash drive will fix the hard drive, and the 'NTLDR is missing' problem will be fixed.
On a working computer, click here to download the files you will need.
Right-click on the download folder and select 'extract all'.

Save it to a location you can easily access, like the Desktop.
Insert your USB flash drive into the working computer (remove any other USB sticks, and be sure there isn't anything on the USB stick that you want since we are about to erase it).
Double-click HPUSBFW.EXE in the ntldrusb folder.
Check Create a DOS startup disk and using DOS system files located at. Then press the grey button with the "..."
A box will come up asking you which folder to select, point it to the dos system files folder.
Press OK; press Start; press Yes. Let it run for a few minutes till a new box comes up, then Press OK, then Close.
Open the putonusb folder. Copy all the files and paste them onto the USB flash drive.
Remove the USB drive and place it in the netbook.
You will see the Windows 98 screen pop up for a second, then you will see a black screen with white letters prompting you to "replace boot sector of the drive C: (y/n)". Press the Y key.
It will go to a C:\ prompt, reboot the computer by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del.
Make sure t

Make sure the BIOS (the part that decides where to boot from) is set to boot from a USB flash drive. If you don't know how to do this, click here.
From there, go back to this site and follow the directions to fix NTLDR using this method. but when i put the drive in and boot my pc i get press any key press a key and it say ntldr is missing STILL!
