I am by no means an expert on the boot-up process of Windows, but I'm fairly certain that you cannot replace NTLDR. All the boot managers I've used (well, okay, only GrUB, but there ain't much else :thumbsup: ) have merely handed off to NTLDR when booting Windows. NTLDR then detects whether there is more than one Windows install and throws up the decidedly unsexy NT Boot Menu. AFAIK, there's no way around it.
