  1. its a file your computer needs to boot. its the windows file your bios looks for first. you can copy it over from another computer, just copy the file from another computer. then use something like "puppy linux" or a bootable thumbdrive that boots with out the hard drive to copy it back.
    this will only be useful if its the only file missing. there is a chance a lot of your drive got erased.
  2. Where would i find the file in another computer and how do i get the computer to boot to a flash drive?
  3. NTLDR is on the root of C:\ You will have to tell the OS to show system files which are hidden by default.

    To boot rom a thumb drive, you'd have to put a bootable OS on it than can access your HD.
