"bootmgr is missing" Error

I wiped my hard drive several months ago and tried to install Windows XP Pro OEM (Someone gave me this computer and I wanted a fresh start.) This didn't work, so I formatted the hard drive. I got a weird error message when reinstalling, so I left it for several months and haven't really touched it. Now I am trying to install Ubuntu 11.10 on here, and after it starts up, I get the message "bootmgr is missing press ctrl+alt+delete to restart" I recently took the graphics card out of that computer and put it in another one, then put it back in because it didn't work, and I am sure that I reinstalled it correctly, as nothing would be showing up on the screen otherwise, right? I installed two computer literally two days ago with the same Ubuntu CD, and I tried multiple disc drives. No external media (USB) drivers are attached, so its not trying to boot from them. How do I install Ubuntu trying to boot from the CD?
