You have to have the space inbetween the "chkdsk" and the "/r"

So it looks like "chkdsk /r" (without the quotes).

ohhh okayyy ^. thanks!


it's doing something wrong..

it's showing us the % of how much it's completed.. but it goes to 60% and then 70% .. then back to 50% .. and it just goes all over the place..

we've been waiting on the completeing of da % for more than half an hour now.

is this how it's supposed to be?

Ok, right click on my computer on the notebook and chose explore, click tools, folder option, view, under hidden files and folders, click show hidden files and folders, on the next line uncheck hidden extensions blah, blah blah, then go to the root of C: and you should see the file ntldr, right click on it and send it to a floppy or cd-r , use what ever option you have. now put the floppy into the errored pc and try to get it to a dos prompt. once there copy what is on the floppy or whatever media you can use and paste it on the root of c:
Once done, at the dos prompt type windows and it should boot up or ask you to reboot.

or

follow this and do what it says and then do it on the pc in error.

Simple "ntldr is missing" fix with boot floppy, CD-R, or USB flash

Yes. There are several stages involved.

Speaking of which, I'm performing a 'chkdsk /r' on a hard drive at the moment. It's just finished. It took just over 5 hours to complete! There were loads of corrected errors.

Mak posted that link already .

Also, here's the section to copy it directly off of the CD (via the Recovery Console):
Booting Troubleshooting

^^^ That is linked from the article you and Mak both posted.

you guys, its been a while now..and there are no % showing.. the screen just stays the same.

But it does say ..

window has found and fixed one or more error on the volume

my bro's friend says .. we should just restart it ..and it should work .

is that what we do ? or do we WAIT until it restarts by itself?
