|There are few different ways that the "NTLDR is missing" error may present itself, the most common >
"NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart"
"NTLDR is missing Press Ctrl Alt Del to restart"
"Boot: Couldn't find NTLDR Please insert another disk"
The "NTLDR is missing" error displays very shortly after the computer is first started, immediately after the (post) is complete. Windows has only initially begun to load when the NTLDR error message appears.
Causes of NTLDR Errors
There are a number of possible causes for NTLDR errors, including the most common "NTLDR is missing" error message. The most common reason for this error is when your PC is trying to boot from a HDD or Flash Drive that is not properly configured to be booted from; in other words, it's trying to boot from a non-bootable source. This also would apply to media on an Optical Drive or FDD that you're trying to boot from, if anyone receives this error message please post in Helproom as its quite easy to fix most of the time.
