    HP Laptop – gives NTLR compressed – press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

    Locked

    by d.gore ·

    I had to hit the F11 “Recovery” option on one of our laptops and after the Full Restore of all the Opsys/Drivers I get the above on booting.
    never had this happen before – any clues or will I have to get a WinXP disk and start again…

      NTLDR or NTDETECT.COM Not Found
      If you get an error that NTLDR is not found during bootup,
      If you have FAT32 partitions, it is much simpler than with NTFS.
      Just boot with a Win98 floppy and copy the NTLDR or NTDETECT.COM files
      from the i386 directory to the root of the C:\ drive.
      For NTFS:
      1.Insert and boot from your WindowsXP CD.
      2.At the first R=Repair option, press the R key
      3.Press the number that corresponds to the correct location for the installation of Windows you want to repair.
      Typically this will be #1
      4.Enter in the administrator password when requested
      5.Enter in the following commands (X: is replaced by the actual drive letter that is assigned to the CD ROM drive.
      COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C\:
      COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:\
      6.Take out the CD ROM and type exit

      Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

      Restoring ntldr file

      Looks like someone set the compressed flag on the file. To uncompress it, boot into Recovery Console (boot from WinXP disc) or run a Windows PE CD and uncompress file:

      attrib c:\ntldr -c
