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

Bootmgr is missing/dc5700


What do you mean by installing driver after format?
Format is a command that destroy all the data on your harddisk and creates new file system. This means that if you have formated your harddisk it is more or less probable that you don't have operating system anymore, so there is nothing to boot.
I need more information to help you.

Is there anyway to decompress the bootmgr or restore my compaq persario cq60 with out windows or recovery disks


No, without a 7 disk you can't do it. Borrow one from a friend, it doesn't matter the version as long it's a retail, not a recovery one.

"BOOTMGR is missing"


Find yourself receiving "BOOTMGR is missing, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" message? Don't stress! Its easier to fix than you think. Here's how:

SOLUTION 1

- Get your Vista installation DVD and pop it into your drive.
- Then restart your computer.
- Set your computer to boot from DVD or CD in your BIOS.

Vista will ask you for language and keyboard layout information, after which you will be asked if you want to re-install Vista or repair your existing installation.
Select Repair. After which Vista's System Recovery Tool will start.

Select Startup Repair and let Vista do its thing! That really is all there is to it!


If that doesn't work try this:


SOLUTION 2

If the previous method does not resolve the problem, you can rebuild the BCD store by using the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment. To do this, follow these steps:

- Get your Vista installation DVD and pop it into your drive.
- Then restart your computer.
- Press a key when you are prompted.
- Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next
- Click Repair your computer
- Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next
- In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt
- Type bootrec /rebuildbcd and then press ENTER

• If Bootrec runs successfully, it will present you with the installation path of a Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type Yes . A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.

• If Bootrec cannot locate any missing Windows installations, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it. To do this, type the following commands in the order shown below: (Remember to press ENTER after each command)

bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

bootrec /rebuildbcd


- Restart the computer.

Not starting up says status faild - replace hard disk 1 i have no recovery disk so what can i do its a compaq 6720s


First try booting into safe mode by pressing f8 as the computer starts up if it gets that far, if this does not work then check to make sure all the cables are fastened securly to the hard drive itself, still no luck your going to need a new hard drive.
