Default NTLDR missing?

Ok My computer was being slow so I decided to do a system restore to an earlier point. The system restore was taking a bit long so i decided to restart my pc. (stupid mistake) Now it says NTLDR is missing and Press ctrl alt del to restart. Now i am trying to reinstall windows but when i go to setup it says there is no hard disk installed. Do i have to get a new hard drive or something. Please help

If its not deceting the hard drive I would try and load the SATA drivers via the F6 prompt pre-install..you will need to get these drivers from your motherboard CD or the motherboard vendor website. Load those bad boys onto a floppy, pushF6 load that driver and see if it will then be detected to run the repair operation. Unless you killed the drive by powering off the machine while it was restoring
