    When I boot up my eMachines PC running WindowsXP Professional I get this
    message "NTLDR is missing". What does this mean and how do I get rid of it?

    There is a way to replace the NTLDR. Put your Windows XP CD into the CD-ROM
    drive. when it asks you if you want to boot from the cd, say yes.When you
    are prompted with a few options, install windows etc. Hit R to go to the
    recovery console.When you are asked what Windows installation you want to
    log on to, type "1" without quotes. There should be no administrator
    password so just hit enter. If you did set one, type it in. You should then
    get a command prompt that looks like this:


    Type in the following commands (seperated by commas) in the order seen here
    WITHOUT quotes!:

    "d:", "cd i386", "copy ntldr c:\"

    Now type in "Exit" again without quotes. you can now remove the Windows XP
    disk. That's it! Booting off of that Hard drive should now be sucsessful!
