    ntldr missing - help.

    I have 2 hdds, my 300 gb hard drive is split into partitions for OS,pagefile,storage etc. 2Nd hard drive is for music. Noticed earlier that music drive did not appear. Rebooted(as this occasionally happens and a reboot sorts it). When I rebooted, I get NTLDR missing, reboot. So I reboot and that doesn't help.

    Any ideas?
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    Just take care, the very odd occasion its a sign that a hard drive is going from experience I've had. What has possibly happened as mentioned on that site is that the file has gotten corrupted and the system can't read it.

    Try fixing it and if it occurs again there is the distinct possibility that the drive is writing errors and isn't really safe for storing data.

    seems to be sorted now. The bios has changed the boot priority of my 3 hdds. Changing it back to my sata drive seemed to allow it to boot. The sata drive is newish(less than 6 months old. it's new compared to my other 2 hard drives).
