Hi scorp, welcome to NST.
NTLDR is a hidden file.
Go to folder options in control panel and untick the hidden and system files options and you'll find it it the partition root (i.e. D:\NTLDR or C:\NTLDR in a dual boot where the Vista partition is the "active" one)
If you're dual booting, all the boot files from both systems have to be on the partition marked as "active" in disk management.
That's the version of boot.ini which needs to point at where the XP system is.

Hello,

If the files are already on the System Active drive you do not have to move them anywhere. Just make sure that the NTLDR, NTDETECT, and boot.ini files are on the system Active Drive and add a entry to EasyBCD for dual boot to work.

cheers,
Mak

Computer restarts itself!

Hi,

My computer restarts itself every now and then. I was told to do this......

Right click on My Computer and select properties.
Click Advanced tab.
Click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
Under System Failure uncheck Automatically Restart.
Click OK.

This won't cure your problem, as instead of restarting you'll likely get a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) instead, but the information displayed will allow you to trace your problem, or post it here!

Now im gettin the BSOD...
Technical information provided is : ***STOP: 0x000000FE (0x00000004, 0x8398C9D0, 0x8476DA78, 0x00000000)


Could somebody pls help me with this... What could be the problem?
