Have you tried "last known good configuration"?

If not boot up after the bios screen runs through but before you normally see the windows logo tap F8 repeatedly. A menue should come up. Select it there and let us know what happens.


Edit: Boy was I paying attention. How many hard drives / partitions do you have?

I want to go like my grandfather did. Peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming at the top of my lungs like the passengers in his car.

The error message "NTLDR is missing" means that the Windows boot loader (NT Loader, NTLDR) cannot be found. This often occurs when the computer tries to boot from a drive other than the one Windows is installed on, due to a change in the drive configuration or because you left a bootable disk in a removable drive. But it may also be because the NTLDR file has been corrupted or deleted.


Please check the following things
* Check that there are no CDs or DVDs in the CD/DVD drives.
* Check that no removable drives are plugged in to the USB ports.
* Check the boot order in the BIOS Setup to ensure that the computer boots from the drive containing Windows before any other bootable devices.

If this does not resolve the problem, you will have to repair the NT boot loader.

And if all these fail then you will have to reinstall the OS and make sure to have a windows data recovery software to get your data back.

Before a reinstall, it can often be worth trying a
fixmbr and
fixboot

This can be done from command prompt.
