NTLDR is Missing.

I recently had a PC running Windows XP that kept delivering me the following error at boot.

NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl Alt Del to Restart

You may also be receiving the following error messages.

NTLDR is Missing
Press any key to restart

Boot: Couldn't find NTLDR
Please insert another disk

NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl Alt Del to Restart

I the searched the internet and did several... Actually TONS of 'Solutions'.
The Solutions varied from creating an MSDOS start up boot disk to all of the following in this Article.
In the end of all of my testing I came to the conclusion that it was an issue with the mother board.
I tested all the IDE / SATA cables and everything tested out.
I then swapped the mother board with a different one and all issues disappeared.

The crazy part is it would allow me to install windows and repair it but it would never allow it to boot.
I kept returning the following error at PC boot up..

NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl Alt Del to Restart

My Result: Bad Motherboard.
