NTLDR is one of the core boot files for Windows. What the error message is saying is that when it is pointed to the place where the file (NTLDR) is supposed to be located it does not find it there. This could mean a multitude of things. The file could actually be missing, it could be corrupt, or the MFT on the drive could have been corrupted. I would start the recovery console ,use the windows disk to do this, then check under c:\ to see if NTLDR is there. If so copy NTLDR from the windows disk or another working XP computer can copy it over the old one. If the computer deosn't start then boot back into the recovery console and run two commands 1. fixboot 2. fixmbr
