Hi all. Just today I had been on the computer for some hours. I turned it off, and then on again, and got an error saying that the NTLDR is missing. I did my research and apparently I need to restore my XP Home Edition with my Windows XP CD. I might have it, but i'm not sure. Is there any way I can download it? Also, is the Windows XP CD the same as the Windows XP Boot CD? Finally, if I do a system restore with my CD, it'll erase all of my files? Are there any ways that I can back up my files (probably hardware specialist)? Sorry for all of the questions, but I tend to freak out when I have to mess with my OS :S also, all I did on my PC was try to get NASM and Cygwin (assemblers) to compile with some C code to get my basic OS to work... although I doubt that had anything todo with my NTLDR problem.
