Sounds like you're not booting to the CD. You need to do that..

I think the OP is getting confused with his terminology because when formatting as computer NTLDR is nowhere in sight and is not needed.

NTLDR is only needed during the boot process once the OS is installed. NTLDR missing has many causes and unless a precise description can be given of what was done then it can only be guess work. However, Microsoft will give you a few ideas.

Exactly. I think Jennifer is correct, the OP isn't booting from the CD.
