    NTLDR is missing.


    After installing Mandriva onto my system I now cannot boot my XP or Vista OS. I get the message NTLDR is missing press any key to restart. From reading articles on the internet I was led to believe the GRUB boot loader would let me boot my windows system?

    Please help.

    Hi dwarfer and welcome to Linux forums.

    your problem is quite a simple one to fix. Boot into Mandriva and post the output of fdisk -l and the contents of the /boot/grub/menu.lst file.
