Default help!!

i dont know whats wrong with my computer. for starters windows wont boot up. It will only boot up if i first boot from cd then go to "Windows Setup" then restart teh computer, but then after i restart my computer and switch the boot sequence back to the hdd it gives me a message saying "NTLDR is missing press CTRL ALT DLT to restart. Then if i do that it just gives m the same message.

If anyone has any suggestions to a possible solution i would greatly appreciate it

try either installing windows with a known good disc or try to install windows on another machine with the same disc.
