I recently got one of those dreaded NTLDR messages when I was attempting to open my virtual machine. I am running Win XP Pro on a MacBook 10.4, Accessing via Parallels 3.0. The machine will not recognize the DVD drive so I could reboot, nor the USB drive. My local tech's only suggestion was to "start over" with my virtual machine, by uninstalling/reinstalling XP and Parallels. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

If I'm understanding correctly, you're DVD and USB devices don't work period? Is that no matter how you try to use them?
Also with the Missing NTLDR you may have bad RAM or a Failing harddrive. I take it the Machine is not under warranty?

This thread should prolly be moved to the hardware forum due to the nature of problems. I would, see if you can somehow boot from a Firewire drive and download a version of LINUX that works with macbook, and then Run memtest86 from the boot prompt. Basically creating and ISO, oops, that won't work either b/c you have no way to install it.... sounds like you're SOL no offense. Sounds like the laptop is on it's last leg the more I think about this.

It may be time for a new macbook, or have this one repaired. If you have BAD RAM or Bad sectors on the HDD then the Tech's suggestion won't work.
