    The error means that your computer is not able to find required system files for booting into the Operating system.The causes could be a fault in the hard drive, HDD cable or the motherboard or it could be a software issue such as missing, corrupt or virus-infected files,the boot.ini file could be misconfigured,the boot sector could be corrupt,the MBR could be missing,or any other issue.In order to solve this issue,you will need the original windows installation disc and boot from it.Enter into the Recovery mode at the prompt and get to the MS-DOS prompt from there.Now run the commands “FIXMBR” and “FIXBOO”.You can also try copying the files “NTDLR” and “NTDETECT.COM” from the installation disc’s “i386” folder to the C:\drive.Your problem should be solved.Make sure you don’t have a virus or hardware problem.

    you have problem with your NTLDR system error.

    >> this NTLDR is a system file that is most important to run your OS.

    >> you have two choice to resolve your problem.

    1. mannually you can do it that is if you have knowledge of CMD.

    >> 2 you must have to re formate your pc by your needed os.

    >> just using this two way you can do i think you have to re install your system .

    >> dont waste your time and do it.

    >> all the best

    have you ever heard about Hirens boot CD. if not let me explain what it is.
    Hirens Boot Disk is a BOOTABLE disk which has lot of tools in it like MBR recovery, BOIS tools, data recovery tools, disk cloning, imaging tools, lots and lots of tools.

    using this cd you can solve your problem in just 2 mins.

    keep the disk in your cd/dvd drive and restart your system.

    change the BIOS settings so that first priority will be cd/dvd drive

    press any key to boot from cd/dvd

    choose the option to fix NTDLR missing.

    hit enter

    restart your system, enjoy
