Hi, again
What it is my children's computer will not start it reads NTLDR is compressed press ctrl - alt - del to restart nothing happened so I looked on the web it told it put the recovery disk in and I followed the instructions still nothing.

I though I get it fixed at a computer shop but when they told me it would cost 69 I decided not to bother, because I could get a new hard drive for that.

Luckily we had a spare hard drive so I tried that, after loading the windows xp it worked fine.

What I need to know is if I connect the NTLDR compressed hard drive to my computer as a slave could I get in to it to add the missing
cd \
attrib -c ntldr

and without it damaging the healthy computer

Thanks in advance

Hi, yes you are correct but you would have to specify the drive path e.g if the faulty drive is drive D you would type
attrib -c ntldr
press Enter
type exit
