Have tried the Recovery Console to fix the "bootcfg /rebuild" and "fixmbr" but to no avail.

Able to boot from a boot CD (I downloaded ages ago) and performed a system restore to the previous restore point but upon restarting, same NTLDR is missing error pops up.

What else can I do?

You want this (http://tinyempire.com/notes/ntldrismissing.htm).

Works a charm most of the time, just read all the instructions. :p

start reading from the section titled "Making the boot disk to work around the BIOS, MBR, NTLDR, and boot.ini problems"

That's the one I downloaded long time ago and I could boot up my OS from it, but when restarting same error comes up. As mentioned earlier, a system restore doesn't help.

Did you actually copy the new files from the CD onto the hard drive though?

Yes

You copied boot.ini, ntldr and ntdetect.com to the root of the C: and made sure the old files were overwritten?

I've never seen that not work - generally if the CD works, replacing those files will work too.
