Specs: Windows xp
I have a Dell mini netbook it says NTLDR is missing. I have a external cd/dvd driver and when I load the cd the black screen keeps popping up saying NDLDR is missing. I try to go in bios to change to cd first and it won't save changes. If anyone has some helpful info can you please let me know

Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.

When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.

Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.

Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.

You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.

Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.

copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.
