My PC can not boot up with error: NTLDR is missing....
I believe one file in C:\ is missing or corrupt, unfortunately, I didn't creat emergency disk for my PC, any idea how to recover? Thanks

1. Check if the HDD is detected
2. See if there is any tumb drive or diskette is inserted, remove them
3. Run Winxp repair
4. If not, reformat and reinstall everything(make sure you have backup all your stuffs)

That's all I will do.

how do u run this file ??....looks to me looks OS needs to be reinstalled....
How do u run this file :-
1) Create a Boot Floppy Disk.
2) Copy the file to the Boot Floppy Disk.
3) Boot from the Disk.
4) At the command line, run the utility as follows :

A:\bcupdate.exe C: (Assuming C: is where Wins XP is installed)

it happened to my old old PC.

If yours is an old PC and the problem suddenly come up, it might be due some error when reading from your memory.

What I did is turn off the PC, take out the RAM. Clean the contact with pencil eraser, and plug it again. After that it can boot normally.
