NTLDR Is Missing

I am getting the NTLDR is missing screen on bootup. The computer has no CD Rom, and I had to use a USB Storage Device to boot up with the fix program from ntldrismissing.com. I was able to get into Windows, but am unable to get into Windows without using the USB boot drive and choosing the fix option every time I reboot.

Is there a way to fix this without a CD-ROM? It is a Latitude D420 run Windows XP Sp2

So, you're saying that you you were successfuly in using a USB "stick" to boot and have already attempted the fix.... but the fix didn't work
If so, then you need to try some of the other fixes that are available:  http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findbyerrormessage/a/ntldrmissingxp.htm
