Windows 7 Wont boot from hdd

Hi all,

Hope someone can help me out here.
Ive just done a fresh install of windows 7 ultimate 64bit (off a upgrade package using the custom install)
This all works well apart from the need to have the windows dvd in the dvd drive for widows to load up (Looks as tho im missing the boot files on my harddrive)
How can i sort this?
Thanks in advance
Andrew
