Can you do a System Restore to a time before the message popped up ?

You can also run System Restore from a Command Prompt if you are unable to boot to Windows.

Press F8 just after BIOS post messages and choose Command Prompt. Type in

C:\Windows\System32\rstrui.exe

If your Windows is installed on some other drive than C:, change C: to it.

Please note I have never used F8 method at all with Win 7 and I do not know what menu options will appear there. I assume the menu will be the same with earlier Windows versions.

Or if you have a Win 7 disk, repair your Win 7 installation.

As an FYI... As with Windows Vista, stand-alone Windows 7 also does not use NTLDR to boot windows. You need to give us more information on top of what you posted already.

Are you multibooting XP & Windows 7?

Did you change the hard drive active partition by using Disk Management tool after you installed Windows 7?

Are you dual-booting the machine with an earlier version of Windows?

Did you unplug the disk or do anything physically within the PC?

If the disk is detected & setup correctly in the BIOS, I suggest you repair your startup files using the Windows 7 DVD, that should resolve the issue.
