Win7 wont boot without DVD on MacBook

Hi all.

I have a Win 7 Ultimate running off boot camp on an intel 13" Macbook.

When I choose the operating system at started (holding down alt), the Win 7 partition wont boot. It reports not being able to find the drive (the flashing gray folder with the question mark appears)

However, if I insert the Win 7 dvd and boot from that, and then ignore the prompt asking to boot from the DVD (let the countdown run out), Win 7 will boot normally. In addition, if I open up Boot Camp from inside Windows and choose to restart in Windows, it will boot fine, but will no longer boot into OSX by default.

Is there anyway to fix this, as it is very annoying having to boot from the DVD all the time, and I would like to keep OSX as my default OS.
