Boot MGR IS MISSING


What actual operating system do you have?
Windows XP does not use the Boot Manager as this was introduced with Windows Vista or Windows 7 and higher versions.

If you are missing the Boot Mgr for Windows Vista or 7, then you will need to do a Startup Repair which you can do using either a Recovery CD if you have one, or else using the Vista or 7 installation disc.

See the following links:

Tip

Repairing Windows Vista using bootrec.exe


Bootrec.exe tool can be used in the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to troubleshoot and repair the following items in Windows Vista:
  • A master boot record (MBR)
  • A boot sector
  • A Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store
To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
  2. Press a key when you are prompted.
  3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
  4. Click Repair your computer.
  5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
  6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
  7. Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.
Bootrec.exe options

The Bootrec.exe tool supports the following options. Use the option that is appropriate for your situation.

/FixMbr Use this option when you must resolve MBR corruption issues, or when you have to remove non-standard code from the MBR.

/FixBoot Use this option if one of the following conditions is true:
  • The boot sector has been replaced with a non-standard Windows Vista boot sector.
  • The boot sector is damaged.
  • An earlier Windows operating system has been installed after Windows Vista was installed. In this scenario, the computer starts by using Windows NT Loader (NTLDR) instead of Windows Boot Manager (Bootmgr.exe).
/ScanOs Use this option when there are Windows Vista installations that the Boot Manager menu does not list.

/RebuildBcd Use this option when you must completely rebuild the BCD.

Note: It will work with all windows Vista versions

How to reformat the computer?


To reformat the windows vista.There are two options to approach the reformat:
  • Option #1: Boot from the Windows Vista DVD. This is more complicated to do, but it destroys all data and partitions.
  • Option #2: Re-install Vista without leaving the desktop. This preserves the previous installation in a folder called Windows.old. Not all info is wiped, however, and you can't destroy your partitions.
First, restart your system. When the computer starts to boot, look for an option before you get to the Windows screen that reads: “Setup” “CMOS,” or “Bios”. This varies between manufacturers. For example, on the boot screen, it says:
“F2 =Setup”.
The option will flash by quickly so be ready for it and react quickly. You may need to reboot a few times to catch it.
Once in the BIOS, look for a setting that says "Boot" or "Boot Sequence". You might have to dig through the menus with your keyboard’s arrow keys to locate the setting. In the listed as Boot Sequence. And to navigate to Startup, then Boot, and then Boot Priority Setting.
When you find the setting, change your DVD drive so that it occupies the top of the list. The hard drive that contains Windows Vista should be listed as second in the boot list.
And put the Windows Vista installation disc in the designated drive. Now, select the Save Changes and Exit option in the BIOS. The computer will restart and will attempt to read the optical drive you just assigned as the first bootable drive.
The system will use the Windows Vista disc to boot and the reformat and reinstall process will start. But You will need to reinstall any programs that are not bundled with Windows Vista and reinstate your preferences and personal files after reformatting the computer and reinstalling Vista.

I Wanted To Make a BOOT CD For Windows XP But The Problem is That I Have Windows Vista and i Dont Know What To Do So What Can i Do


How to make a bootable Windows Vista ISO DVD media
  1. Put all 3 downloaded files (namely install.wim, boot.wim and an executable X13-49120.exe) in the same folder (for this tutorial, let’s assume the files are put on C:\ else you need to modify the path accordingly).
  2. Run the X13-49120.exe executable. Windows Vista Setup Preparation will create a new folder “Vista” inside the folder and will populate the folder with all necessary Vista setup files which takes up about 2.52 GB disk space.
  3. Exit from the Install Windows screen.
  4. Download CDimage 2.52.
  5. Extract CDimage from CDimage.zip to the C:\ root directory.
  6. Open a command prompt shell, and run the following command: cdimage.exe -lVISTA_EN_DVD -m -u2 -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Vista\ C:\Vistax86.iso
    Bootable Windows Vista x86 DVD ISO image in UDF format will be created as vistax86.iso in C:\ or any folder you specified above.
  7. Burn the newly create ISO with a CD/DVD burning software such as Nero or Alcohol 120%. Try to burn at low speed (i.e. 4X) and turn on verification to ensure that the DVD creation is fine.
Visit here for illustrative guide on using CDImage GUI version to make the bootable DVD ISO.

Create a Windows Vista ISO image and DVD with Oscdimg
Another possible way to create a bootable Vista ISO and DVD is by using Oscdimg CD-ROM and DVD-ROM Premastering Utility, available via WinPE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) via Business Desktop Deployment 2007 or Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK).
  1. Complete step 1 – 3 as above.
  2. In the command prompt window, run the following command: oscdimg -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lVISTA_EN_DVD C:\Vista\ C:\VistaDVD.iso
    A VistaDVD.iso UDF DVD image will be created and can be used to boot the computer from DVD to install Vista.
  3. Burn the ISO image file by using last step above.
Visit the guide to create Vista bootable DVD using vLite.
Note: For 64-bit Windows Vista, download etfsboot.com and put it into “\Vista\boot” folder. Or users using WAIK (WinPE), the etfsboot.com can be found at %Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\ folder. So simply replace -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com with -bC:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\etfsboot.com when making 64-bit Vista DVD image.

I my laptop cant boot windows 7 and xp together !


Hi,
Since you have installed XP after installing windows 7 & vista, you have erased the boot manager of vista. To get it back, just download & install Vista Boot Pro from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/VistaBootPRO.shtml

Dual Boot problem in Windows XP & VISTA


Don't try to edit the xp boot.ini or the vista bootloader. It only leads to other problems and headaches.
Try this first: Take note as to which drive has vista on it, put your vista installation cd in the drive and let it boot to the "installation window", then choose "repair", then "startup repair." Make sure you choose the drive that already has vista on it. Let that run and when it re-boots you should then be given a choice to boot to vista or "other windows".
There is also a (free) program called EasyBCD. Download that, read the directions and have at it.
If none of that works, you'll have to do a clean install. Install XP on one drive first, then Vista on the second drive in that order. The Vista bootloader will pick up the XP. However, XP is NOT forward compatible and will not recognize the Vista bootloader. Make sure that you don't have any flashdrives or media cards plugged in before doing the install.
Another approach would be to shrink the Vista volume, creat a new partition, then install Linux Ubuntu that partition. Linux will detect all of the OS's and create a boot menu. Unfortunately, you'll lose about 5 gigs to the Linux OS and it's swap partition, but then, you get to goof around with Linux :-)

2 operating systems


The Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store contains boot configuration parameters and controls how the operating system is started in Microsoft®Windows Vista.
Remove Windows Vista From Dual Boot System Windows Vista works slightly different from earlier versions of Windows when installed on a dual boot system, in that it has a completely different boot loader.
When Windows Vista is first installed as a dual boot operating system a new boot folder is added to the root directory of your PC. This is a hidden file and therefore is not noticed. When you boot your PC a menu appears with the following options:
  • Earlier versions of Windows
  • Windows Vista
Clicking the Windows Vista option will boot the PC into Windows Vista. If, however, you select the earlier versions of Windows option, another menu will appear from which you can choose Windows XP or whatever earlier version - Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 server - you installed first.
Because of this new boot loader it is not as easy to remove Vista from a dual boot system scenario. Simply deleting the Vista partition will, of course, remove Windows Vista, but, unfortunately, it will not remove the Windows Vista boot loader. For this reason, if you simply delete the Windows Vista partition, on rebooting your machine you will not automatically boot into Windows XP (or an earlier version). Instead you will once again be presented with a menu from which you have to choose which operating system you wish to boot to.
Obviously, once you have removed the boot loader and rebooted the Vista operating system will still be on the partition you originally installed it on. To remove Vista completely you will need to Delete the partition that Windows Vista was installed upon.
To remove this menu, or more to the point, the boot loader, proceed as follows:
1/ Boot the PC to Windows Vista
2/ Ensure you are logged onto the Internet and then download the freeware boot loader utility VistaBootPro (www.vistabootpro.org)
3/ Once you have downloaded VistaBootPro, install it on your machine
4/ During Install VistaBootPro will install an icon on your desktop
5/ Locate the VistaBootPro icon and Right Click on it. Then, from the drop down menu, Click on the Run As Administrator option
6/ User Account Control (UAC) will pop up and ask for permission to run the program
7/ After you have given UAC permission - you must be the administrator or have administrator privileges - VistaBootPro will run.
8/ Once VistaBootPro opens, Click on the Bootloader tab
9/ In the Bootloader Maintenance section, Click on the Radio button next to the option marked 'Uninstall the Vista Bootloader (Used to restore Legacy OS) option' and then Click the Apply button
10/ Finally Reboot your PC
11/ On rebooting your machine you will boot directly into Windows XP (or an earlier operating system). No menu will appear.
12/ All that is left to do now is to delete the partition which originally contained Windows Vista. (Assuming you wish to remove the Vista partition from your hard drive).

Cannot run Fujifilm Software for FinePix with Windows Vista


1) If you right-click on the executable file, can you use the
"Compatibility" TAB to run it as an XP program?

2) Many XP device drivers will fail to install or execute properly
under windows VISTA, and I suspect it is the camera's USB
or Fire-wire (IEEE-1394) based device driver that is causing
the problem, not the main application.

Unfortunately there is NO easy solution for this,
except to get an upgraded software package (for Vista)
from the Camera Manufacturer.

3) There are also two possible work-around(s), but both require
some knowledge and software installation:

DUAL-BOOT
------------------
Install both Windows XP and Windows Vista on your
computer using two separate hard-drive partitions, and
a boot manager.

A partitioning tool like "Norton Partition Magic", formerly
"Power Quest" or "Acronis Tools" can be used to partition
the hard-drive non-distructively (your data is preserved):

a) Resize (shrink) the existing Windows partition.
b) Create a new partition for Windows XP (about 10 Gigs)
c) Install Windows XP-Pro onto the new partition,
d) Add both the XP and Vista partitions to the BOOT.INI
file on the boot drive.

Both windows XP and Vista do have multi-boot capability,
but the Windows XP boot manager may not recognize Vista,
in which case you may have to re-install or re-pair the Vista
installation. The Vista boot manager will recognize WinXP.


Running VISTA is generally a bad idea, because it is obscenely
slow and inefficient compared to XP, and because it is infected
Microsof't draconian and arrogant copy protection schemes,
known as DRM = Digital Rights Management.

Towards this end, Vista also insists that all installed multi-media
devices must be "Recording Industry" compliant and approved,
to make music and movie piracy more difficult. Many media
copying programs and CD-rippers will also refuse to run,
by design.

All this "Added Technology" is stealing your money, your
computer resources, your performance, and your right to
backup your media, at your expense, for the benefit of
the movie industry Mafia.

Use Vista only when you have to, boot to Windows XP for
most of your applications.


VIRTUAL MACHINE
-----------------------------
Both Microsoft and VM-ware (as well as others) make
a software product called a Virtual-PC, which allows you
to emulate multiple operating systems under windows,
including older windows, MAC and Linux.

VMWare is by far the best, the most reliable and the
most flexible, at about $200 US.
