    hi,
    i have Windows XP Home edition
    i got the "NTLRD is missing press ctlr alt del to restart" error
    i do not have a windows xp cd
    i found a Windows 2000 server CD and i installed windows 2000 on the same hard drive but on a new partition
    i can now boot Windows 2000
    in my computer it shows two drives
    C: and H:

    c=Windows 2000
    h=Windows XP

    i found the NTLRD file online and placed it in H:
    now how can i boot windows XP instead of Windows 2000 ?
