NTLDR is corrupt. The system cannot boot.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
What? I came home to this message. I am pretty sure it was automatic updates that restarted my PC. How do I fix this? I tried to reboot a couple times. The first time didn't work, but it booted up fine the 2nd time. Should I do a repair install? This is the trial version x64 and it seems kinda buggy.

Try booting into your bios, setting everything back to stock and then reboot.

I would suggest trying to load into recovery console, and running a chkdsk /r, and then if that does not work, run a fixboot from the recovery console, and run a repair install as the last option. I have seen tons of times where a repair install, will screw up windows updates and other things. Best to stay away if possible.

Thread Starter 
Thanks for the replies. I found a post on another forum where someone was running x64 XP and said they got this message after auto updates rebooted. That is what I think happened to mine. I used it for an hour or so this moring and rebooted it several times and it has been OK.

Is this a software issue or a hardware issue? One of the 80gb drives I have I bought used and never ran any tests on it. Is there a chance that it is one of my drives that is causing XP to be flakey?


It isn't too big a deal. I am planning to get Vista soon (as soon as MS sends it to me) If it keeps up, I may just install my XP 32bit. I wanted 64 for the RAM, but 2 of my sticks are being RMA's, so I only run 2gb .

hmmm, I had a no boot issue last week and it turned out to be one of my sticks of Ballistix. I have 2 sets, one old (double sided) and one new (single sided) It turned out to be one of the older sticks, so I have that set in the mail to crucial atm. I wonder if the other set is bad too? maybe a memtest is in order.

trying running memtest. Also you may have the faulty memory controller if all mem sticks are giving errors. Also running the chkdsk /r will test the hd for you.

I get this when I mess up my RAM timings or set the RAM clocks too high.
