Did you try doing a last known good configuration?

If you are trying to boot from that CD then you need to make the CD-ROM you first device in the boot order.

Did you make any changes before this error showed up?

Go into BIOS and check that the hard drive is recognized and make sure that everything is in the right boot order.

What version of windows are you running?
The file NTLDR is used by Windows NT\XP (possibly ME, but not sure) to start Windows.
If you have your original Windows CD, it may be advisable to repair your installation by running setup from CD.

Alternatively, if you know someone with the same version of windows, you may be able to copy NTLDR from their computer. Windows NT\XP users will require a bootdisk that can handle NTFS (try www.bootdisk.com)
