Vista Problem

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

For reasons I do not know, my wife's computer does not boot anymore. We get the error: "NTLDR is missing. Press any key to continue." When I press a key the error repeats. Now I know this has something to do with the MBR and I did some google searches to figure out the solution. I made myself a vista rescue disk and attempted to fix it by running the utility. I ran the automatic utility several times and I still get the same problem. On one cite it said to manully fix using the bootsect program on the rescue disk...however, new versions of the rescue disk don't have the /boot directory that contains bootsect.exe. Does anyone know where I can find an older resuce disk image to download...or any other fix ideas? I appreciate your help!

Is it the 150mbish or less Vista "Repair disk" ? If so do the automatically fix it or whatever it's called that looks for errors , three or four times. I have to do it 4 all the time, when I had the problem. Or it was 5..I don't remember but less than 6 and it should work.

I can probably upload it if you need it ( I think it's the earlier ones ) but I'll put it into .iso and you can just burn it. (Vista Repair disk)

Yeah...I've run the utility 7 or 8 times and its still not working. It would be great if you could provide me the ISO of the old repair disk. What way would you suggest I receive the image? Thanks and +rep!
