I have recently upgraded to Win 7 and has this Missing NTLDR error appear at boot-up. Plugged my Win 7 CD, tried the auto repairs contained in it but still won't boot properly? What am I doing incorrectly?

When you upgraded to Win7 was your previous OS on the same drive as Win7? Were you running a dual boot system with Win7 and WinXP or Vista?

Have you tried using the "bootsect /nt60 all /force" command from the Windows Repair Console? There is a write up about how to use this command here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc749177(WS.10).aspx

This command should reset your system to use the bootmgr for Win7 instead of looking for the ntlrd used by WinXP.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc709667(WS.10).aspx also has a BCD rebuild command that you may have to try.
