Often you see the “NTLDR missing” error when your computer tries to boot from a floppy disk, CD / DVD / BD, external hard drive, or non-bootable USB flash drive. The BIOS setup program tells the computer how to use the drive, so incorrect settings can cause problems, including these errors.
There are a number of possible causes for NTLDR errors, including the most common “Missing NTLDR” problem.
The most common cause is when your computer is trying to boot from an hard drive or flash drive that is not configured correctly for Start. In other words, it tries to boot from a non-bootable source. This also applies to optical drive or floppy drives media that you want to boot from.
What NTLDR Error Is Missing
NTLDR, an abbreviation for NT Loader, acts as a bootloader for all versions of Windows NT operating systems, including Windows 10. NTLDR usually runs from the main hard drive, and can also run from portable storage devices such as USB stick, CD ROM, etc. The NT boot loader can also load a non-based operating systemI on NT, with the corresponding boot sector in the file.
NTLDR contains three main files:
- NTLDR Main Loader
- NTDETECT.COM, sometimes also called COM, which is required to start an NT-based operating system, defines basic hardware information for a successful startup.
- boot.ini contains detailed system configuration information.
If Windows 10, Windows 8, or Windows 7 does not start, you may see the following errors:
- NTLDR is missing. Press Ctrl Alt Delete.
- NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart.
- Loading: Could not find NTLDR. Try a different hard drive.

- The computer boots from a non-boot source.
- Files related to NTLDR are corrupted or missing.
- The active partition of the boot volume is not set correctly.
