This is what comes up when I restart my computer into my windows 7 partition. My hard drive had 2 partitions on it. One contained a Windows XP install that I never used and then Windows 7 which I always use. I used Partition Magic to format the Windows XP partition and to also switch my Windows 7 partition from being a logical drive to a primary drive. It then required that I restart my computer. i did so and it came up and successfully formatted the XP partition to a clean slate. I was planning to install Linux Mint 8 on that partition instead. It then restarted one more time and..."NTLDR is Missing, Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". It does this every time. I've partitioned a lot and never had this problem. I'm thinking it is because I was dual booting XP and 7, so it would ask me at start up each time which I wanted to boot into. I was hoping someone knew how I might be able to goes into the bios...or do something to get back into Windows 7. Please help. I really need to get back into that install.
So I just booted into my old hard drive which I still have installed in the computer. It is also windows XP. I went to my computer and the drives are currently like this: Local Disk (C: ), DVD-RAM Drive (D: ), Linux (E: ), Local Disk (F: ).
Right before I formatted my Windows 7 install was under the (C: ) drive, now it is the (F: ) drive. Maybe this is the problem? Maybe I need to set in the bios or something that it should be (C: )? I dunno, please someone help me.

After doing some research It seems that NTLDR is only for windows XP and that Windows 7 uses a file called BOOTMGR, so it must still be trying to dual boot with XP as well? please help.
