BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" message, in menacing white font on black screen. So you hit Ctrl+Alt+Del only to get the same message again, and again, and again, in an infinite, terrible loop. You clutch your chest and rock back and forth and froth at the mouth for awhile. Then you straighten up, take a deep breath, and grab the Vista installation DVD.
See, if your PC's boot disk got bumped out of wack, you can often fix it right back up using the original Vista installation disk, which comes with a pretty extensive System Recovery Tool that's got lots of options (see screengrab). Set your computer to boot from DVD (using the Boot setting in the BIOS), insert the disc and restart. Vista will prompt you for language and keyboard layout options, then ask if you want to reinstall Vista or repair your installation. You want Repair. From there Vista's System Recovery Tool will take over, and lead you down the road to happy vistages again.
If that fails? Try the free GParted CD

Compaq Preario CQ56-115DX Notebook wont restart


If your bootmgr is missing and you have windows 7 you should have a repair partition that can be booted into using the F8 key when powering on your machine. If not, you will need a repair/recovery/installation disc to boot from

BOOTMGR is missing


This may be due to the reason that your Compaq model is only Vista or Win7 Compatible.I didn't get your question properly but as you're having no windows or DOS in your machine.All you need is a Bootable Windows Disc and a working DVD rom to get this done.Cause commands or anything else will require that and even if you fix it with some tricks. Some Other file missing message may appear. But if you just want to push yourself. Normally are Booting files are in the root folder in my case it's in C:\ like NTLDR BOOT.ini BootSect.dos so try to access your root drive.

Where can i get recover disk for my laptop i have a compak it said bootmgr is missing where can i get one or how you burn one on other laptop acer


@ cherylschlei

Compaq laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you don't need to use a disc to restore it to factory default. The hotkey for the recovery is the F10 key. After you press the power button, you need to simultaneously press the F10 key to start system recovery. If this one won't work for you, you need to order the recovery discs from Compaq at 1- 800-652-6672. If you're still under warranty, they'll give it to you for free.

Cheers

You need a Windows install disk , not a recovery one , then follow this

If you can't borrow a disk from someone then just find it online; there a dozens of torrents with them out there - for legal reasons i can't give you a link.

I have a laptop HP Compaq 6720s and now I get the following code t.w. 0x4001001300001002 and when I will restarted the computer the message boot.mgr missing. What must I do?


That error means that the Boot Manager is Missing. This is usualy caused by either a failed hard drive, or a failed attempt at recovery. If you try to do a recovery and then suddenly halt the process, weather on purpose or due to somthing like power failure, then the first bit of the Recovery boot process, the BTMNGR, can be hosed. If this happens then your only option is to order recovery disks from the manufacturer and install the OS that way.

You might boot into bios (F10 on startup) and do a hard drive self test first to make sure you dont have a hard drive problem...

Does a Hp 6720s laptop with XP pro have a built in recovery feature without a disk.


Hello, Most newer laptops now come without a recovery disk because the recovery is usually on the hard disk partition D.If you check yours and it has the partition for recovery, you can still burn this partition into a DVD media because the partition are usually large, incase something happens to your laptop recovery, you still have your recovery on your DVD MEDIA. Go to start>computer and check. Regards

Wont boot up


If you have a windows vista disk handy this is how you repair this.

Boot from the Windows Disk

Select your language > Next

In the lower left hand side click

Repair your computer.

If you do no have a Windows Vista Disk you will need a computer with a working CD burner to download and burn a Windows Vista Recovery disk with. You can find one for your computer here:

Hello the f11 recovery doesnt work instantly goes to BOOTMGR is missing , wat else can i do ?


Did you (or somebody else) re-install Windows on your computer?
If so, you (or they) may have wiped-out the "recovery partition".

Since you have a COMPAQ, contact them, and order a replacement set of "System Recovery" CD-ROMs. Re-install Windows (which will reinstate the "recovery" partition) from those disks.
