Specs: Windows xp home sp3, emachine/640ram
I give up trying on my blahh...ok iam on my wifes vista home premium laptop(no floppy)
i accidently overloaded my desktop winxp sp2 home e-machine 640in ram 100gb drive. And my old friend from yrs past is back...NTLDR IS MISSING.. i only have a old hp 98 startup disk that does start up untill the welcome screen comes up with warning this is going to abort now not a hp product. and it just keeps booting over and over so as it begins to boot twin 98 disk i unplug hd and than it goes into this ok to start off or thats why some commands dont take.can i boot back into windows with my usb flash 4gbts that i use for transfering pics to pc from phone. or can i downlaod fix from site and make restore cd..or is thier a step by step that will actually work without so many errors in command prompt to fix the master boot.

What do you mean by "accidentally overloaded" ?

I gather you do not have either an XP Home Install CD or Emachines recovery disks?

NTLDR missing is generally a sign of harddrive malfunction.

Suggest you begin by downloading a harddrive diagnostic tool from the drive manufacturer.

If you have been getting messages stating “NTLDR is Missing”, your hard drive is not loading. Depending on your computer, you may need to press F2, F10, F12 or Del in order to access your BIOS. In the Advanced BIOS Options menu, make sure the Boot Sequence shows the hard drive loads first.

Hope this helps!
