The Message NTLDR is missing could be caused by more than one reason. Main reasons as either the file is actually got corrupted or system is booting from the wrong disk or partition.
Please try the below steps.
1. If there is any USB flash drives plugged, please unplug all try reboot. Some systems may try booting from USB instead of HDD and produce this error.
2. Copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the installation disc to the root of "C" drive.
Here is Microsoft's official guide about doing this - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816793

In addition to what has already been posted, I have seen this message twice before when the hard drive has failed due to mechanical failure.
I don't know why you can't boot from CD though.
