I have an ACER Netbook with Windows XP that says NTLDR missing. When I do a system recovery from the netbook, it gets all the way to 93% then tells me there was an error and goes back to the 'ntldr is missing' screen.
I tried the instructions on the ntldrismissing.com website and got all the way to the C: prompt, but none of the other things they say should happen happens. What can I do?
I do have another acer netbook with Windows 7 that works. Is there a way to clone the operating system to a flash drive and put it on the broken netbook

Cloning work work. A. There is a license issue B. Unless the laptops are identical, chances are very good it won't boot after you dump the image on it.
If the drive tests as bad (I'm 90% sure it will), you can buy a new drive and the install Windows on that drive. You can either contact Acer for a restore disk set or find an XP OEM disk and install using the key form the laptop.
