I am having a problem with my computer and I am hoping you could lend me a hand. You see, I formatted my Acer Aspire 5670. After I finished formatting and turned on the computer, I saw an error message saying “ntldr is missing”.
I tried looking for answers online but I still could not figure it out. I tried restarting my computer and then I pressed F2.
When I did, a menu saying Phoenix Bios Setup Utility flashed on the screen, of which I don’t understand anything about.
I hope you can help me figure this out. Thank you.
How to fix if NT-Loader is missing?
NTLDR stands for New technology Loader which is a system file needed so that your operating system can boot successfully. There are many causes of "NTLDR missing", one reason is that the system file is corrupted due to virus or improper shutting down the system. You have stated that you formatted your laptop, it may be caused by improper installation. What you can do is you can try to boot again from your installer, just like you did when you reformat.Put your first boot settings in your BIOS to be the CD ROM. Load the installer and instead of formatting your laptop again you can choose repair option. If you are using Windows 7, it is actually shown before you click the install option. Repair option does not completely erase the OS but it will just replace the missing file of the OS.
Another option that you can do is using a software or tool to fix the NTLDR missing. You can download the iso of Hirens Boot CD and burn it in a . Boot from the CD and you can see the option in there "Fix NTLDR missing".
