NTDLR IS MISSING - SPEED DATING SUPPORT SITES
One of the most frustrating experiences a Windows user can experience is starting up your computer and getting a black screen with a message telling you that NTDLR is missing. You hit CRT-ALT-DEL and again the same message over and over again.
Among the most common problems producing the error are: a problem with the boot.ini file, the hard disk master boot record (MBR), an a loose, unplugged hard drive cable, a hard drive with a bad boot sector, a bios issue such as the boot order set to a no booting drive , a fragmented MTF, and too many files in the root directory. There are many more potential causes. Microsoft's support site has detailed information. You can also find lots of information on WUGNET's help forum.
