  1. Very odd indeed. NTLDR is a vital file and is created on the hard drive during installation. Are you loading from an original Microsoft DVD?
  2. yes it is an OEM windows 7 64 bit disk, used once.
  3. sounds like a bad hard drive and upon reload it installed ntldr to a bad sector of the hdd.

    how about a new hard drive then reload.
