ntldr is missing in Windows 7

Specs: Windows 7, intel pentium 4--2gig RAM
I am running an upgrade version of Win 7 home which was installed over win Xp home. All has gone well for the last couple of months, but when I started up this morning I received the following message: NTLDR is missing press ctrl+alt+del to restart.

Any suggestions on how to restore the NTLDR? System restore does not work. Any one know how to do this from the command prompt.

The procedure below is for XP but might work in Win 7

"1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter "E". This letter may be different on your computer.

copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot."
