Hey guys,

I have been having problems accessing the internet from my desk top. I therefore deleted the program I was using (AOL 9.0vr) using the unistall program, with the aim of reinstalling it.

When I turn my desktop on, and before the PC even gets to the windows loading stage, I get a message saying:

Verifying DMI Pool Data

NTLDR Missing

Press ctl+alt+del to restart.

When I do this I get the same problem, please can anyone help?

Many thanks in advance.

Do you have the Windows installation disc for that computer?

There are two ways to get the boot file back on; the recovery console or a repair install. Neither of those methods will cause you to lose any data, but you will need a Windows disc.

Hi,

Thank you very much for the reply. I don't have any back up disks, I brought the system second-hand. Is there any way around this?

All help and advice gratefully received

Elvandil posted a link to download the recovery console for Windows XP Here, but I'm not sure if it can reload system files with just that.

You can contact the manufacturer of your PC and see if they can send you a new XP disc, or the store where you bought the computer from. These normally cost between $20 - $50. I'm sure if you search long enough, you will be able to find the disc for free, it just depends on how much effort you are willing to expend on this.

You can borrow a Windows disc from a friend as long as it is the exact same version of windows that you already have. You already have a valid license for Windows stored on your PC, so there is nothing illegal about doing this.
