Re: loading pbr for descriptor 2...failed

PBR is the Partition Boot Record.
There might be something wrong with your hard-disk.
Follow the steps below:
Start->Run. Type cmd.
In the command-prompt window, type chkdsk /f. Press Enter.
(Note: The scan will take place on next reboot, so you might be prompted for restart.)

I can't even boot the computer.  It just gets to this point and stops

Can you get to the Dell diagnostics (f12 at boot)?

Re: loading pbr for descriptor 2...failed

Hia, I'm having just the same problem, so I'd be very grateful to anyone with solution to it .

 

But I've gonea bit further in attempts to sove it, and still the same message

 

 loading pbr for descriptor 2...failed

NTLDR is missing

Press CTRL+ ALT + DEL to restart the computer

 

and if I try to boot from CD  - it just stops at some point of loading and gives another blue screen with white message on half of the screen.

 

Any help would be much appreciated

 

thanks

I'm also having this same problem on a Dell Dimension 3000.  It normally runs a prime number generation program off in the corner.  I shut it down last night and everything was just fine.

 

Tonight I decided to boot and start the work up again and now I get this error message.  One minute it is working, I let the machine sit powered off, and now it won't work.  Go figure.

 

I'm able to get into diagnostics (F10).  I have yet to see any errors but they are still running.

 

If everything looks good where should I go from here?

 

Thanks!
