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
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?
