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

This command should reset your system to use the bootmgr for Win7 instead of looking for the ntlrd used by WinXP. also has a BCD rebuild command that you may have to try.
