ntldr missing press alt + ctrl ....
 
Hi,
I installed Ubuntu 6.10 on ly Dell Lattitude D520 HD partitioned into 3 parts 40GB C:as FAT 40 GB D:NTFS and rest between Linux and swap partition. Before installation there was only XP on Drive D:. I had to reloaded XP and the Grub menu got destroyed, after which I could not load the LINUX. I found a SUPER GRUB Disk and tried to recover my LINUX , however being a super ass, I did not take a backup of the MBR thing and now I cannot load my Windows XP. However using the Super Grub Disk, I can boot my XP , which is intact. However without the Super Grub Disk boot help it sez
" NTLDR missing press ALT + CTRL + DEL"

can anyone help me put this thing straight.

Also when I put my XP Recovery CDs and boot, it asks me for some password, which I do not know, as I had set no password for my XP installation.

Is there a hope ? .....

Let the Brightest amongst u, lead this stray sheep back to the LINUX herd.

Should be easy to fix; let's see the output from this
Code:

egrep -v "(^#|^$)" /boot/grub/menu.lst
(gets rid of the ridiculous comments and blank lines Debian distros insist on)

As for the password, there probably isn't one - just hit enter (or <space><enter> maybe)
