Hi guys, Another newbie here Kal’s the name!
As you know Ntldr is a tricky one.
I’ve built a few pcs before but lack in depth hardware knowledge.
Whenever i’ve seen Ntldr is missing i’ve just re-installed windows,
formatted the drive, once i started an install and rebooted after copying files and that seemed to fix the problem…But not this time.
This time it happened on a machine that’s been working fine for ages and I desperately need the system working again so no formatting!
I recently tried to recover some files from old hard drives via usb caddy if that makes a difference. Since I shutdown that night I was messing with the caddy the next time I powered up the NTLDR was missing.
Please help, I herd upgrading BIOS might help so will do but isnt ntldr a windows file? don’t see how it ties in.
