I did a super dumb thing and I hope I can fix this. I would really appreciate you guys helping me. :( 

This is what happened...I had a dual boot Windows XP/7 and now I just wanted Windows 7 without the Windows XP but I moved the boot and bootmgr files to Windows 7 and basically used these instructions:

Anywhoo, I restarted my computer but it tells me "NTLDR is missing"! Note, I have a netbook so I don't have an external DVD drive and hoped to do this with a flash drive. Is this possible? I made a flash drive with the Windows 7 USB utility tool but when I put that in, it doesn't load the Windows 7 repair/installation thing.

I'm not sure what to do...

Thanks!

I had that problem, I just reset the bios to default setting and it booted up,after which I promptly took off the xp drive because almost everything ran in 7

How do you reset the bio to default settings? It just tells me "NTLDR is missing, press CTL-ALT-DELETE to restart" and that's it. :/
