if you go to a computer that has xp on it you can enable "show protected system files" (or something to that effect) in the folder options, then copy the ntldr file that is in your root drive (c:) usually) to a floppy drive, then reboot with the floppy in, it'll try and boot to it, then you can change directory to C: and copy the ntldr file. (this is pretty complicated if you have no clue how to use a few dos commands, but its really quite easy) or if you dont have a floppy, meby you have a live version of linux? you could boot to linux (after getting a copy of the ntldr file from a working windows setup) and then copy it from there. or use a pre install environment like mini PE.

all in all though the ntldr is missing error is really really annoying... and for alot of people a sure means for a reinstall
