Unable to start up my machine.
NTLDR is missing
Specs of my computer:
OS window xp
Intel Pentium 4
I've searched and read many many articles and information related to this
problem, I've also asked and seeked help from many people with some computer
knowledge (techs maybe, not sure how much they know), I've got some advises from
them. I've tried resolving the issue by following all kinds of similar
instructions from those people, some were from forums, some were just found
However, I got "stuck" at some point. I can't even get to safe mode where
Windows Advanced Option would normally shows when I tap F8. I tried copying the
3 files I needed (NTDETECT.COM, NTLDR, BOOT.INI) from another XP machine.
Got those copied to a floppy disk,
screen displays "file cannot be copied onto itself" or " 0 file(s) copied..."
I even tried copying them to a CD, didn't work neither, same messages displayed.
People suggest me these ways: 1) Safe Mode 2) Safe Mode with Cmd to Sys Restore
which is simply a cmd prompt in safe mode 3) Safe Mode with Neworking 4) LKG or Last Known Good Configuration
Well, I'm "stuck" at the safe mode like I mentioned.
I do not wish to formatt or lose any files any programs or anything I had before I encountered this problem,
I've not backed up any files yet.
I spent so much time trying to figure out what else I could do in order to help
resolving the problem. It's very bothering that I can't use my own computer like
I always do before this problem occurs.
Please help, I seriously need to get my pc working.
