"Select Proper Boot Device" now "NTLDR is missing"
MB: Asus Pz868
Ram: Corsair 8GB Vengeance LP
Using on board VIdeo For now
Maxtor HD Sata
WD Raptor Sata
HP Lightscribe DVD-r Drive Sata
Problem I was having once I completed my new build with old system parts was as listed in title. It started out as select proper boot device, and now it states ntldr is missing. From what I have been reading it seems as if my partition with my windows 7 install is not set active. I do not have my windows 7 DVD only my old vista DVD. I tried to boot into it to make use of CMD and attempt to make my partition active but I was unsuccessful to even get into CMD. I went into bios and forced booted from the drive with the OS and still same error, also I attempted to disable the other sata and run the computer again with no success also. Look forward to hearing from someone soon. I will be sitting by my laptop all night until this computer gets running.

Tried Both Commands and still gave me NLTDR is missing. When I finally get to cmd, it lists my current drive as x:\sources. It also does not list any drive showing the partitions when in system recovery options. Also Forgot to mention I am using a vista install cd for all of this. I lost my windows 7 but heard vista with sp1 works.
Recap: ran both commands like you have them listed in x:\sources it said it succeeded but still gave NLTDR missing error. Startup repair returns this info
