I have the hp laptop with Vista Basic installed.
Two days back my Vista got some problem and it was
hanging only by showing cursor on black screen.
Then I installed XP on my machine. Got a backup of
all data on some usb hard disk.
Then I thought of recovering the Vista using System
Recovery disks which came with laptop.
I did spend yesterday's night to do all recovery and
now in morning when I told to click on 'Finish' button to
restart the computer ; it restarted only to say 'NTLDR
is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart'
I am now deadlocked. I can't go back to XP neither to
I searched on several forums regarding this error but
every solution is associated with XP operating System
not with Vista.
It seems like though after doing Vista System
Recovery; laptop is referring to NTLDR of XP which is
not in place.
I don't want to install XP again.
Any thought on this bloody Vista?
