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 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
