Iam trying to do a clean install of win 7 64 bit, onto a an ntfs re formattted hard drive. The bios is configured to boot up on cd drive. But all that happend is that i get the message "NTLDR is missing". Any suggestions will be most appreciated................................................................Ron G

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?

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.
