Windows 7: BCDEDIT - NTLDR not found

09 Jun 2009   #1

XP and W7
bcdedit - ntldr not found

Hi, I've been trying to modify the Windows 7 bootmanger to show my XP drive.
I have XP on D: (sata)
Windows 7 on C: (ide)

These are the changes I made to the default

bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d "XP"
bcdedit /set {ntldr} device partition=D:
bcdedit /set {ntldr} path \ntldr
bcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /addfirst
bcdedit /default {ntldr}
bcdedit /timeout 5

Everything worked apart from when XP was selected it gives the error NTLDR is missing or corrupt.
However I am able to boot XP if I change it to the primary boot drive in the BIOS.

I also tried setting it to C, just in case the drive lettering was incorrect according to Windows 7.

Any ideas on why this isn't working?
