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


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.
