I get the error "Can't find NTLDR"

A. A. This is a core file which must be in the root directory, and that fact that it cannot find it may mean other files are also missing, however to fix this problem perform the following:

  1. Boot the system with a DOS bootable floppy disk (if it is a FAT partition). If it is a NTFS partition use the NT boot disk shown in the above step
  2. In the i386 directory of the CD-ROM there will be a file NTLDR._, which is the compressed version of NTLDR.
  3. You can expand this file using expand.exe that comes with DOS and Windows for Workgroups
    expand d:\i386\ntldr._ c:\ntldr.
