How can I start when Default boot device missing

Good day Ken Markham
If your "Default Boot Device" is your hard drive and it is missing, then your machine will not start, you may need to have a technical person look on your machine for you.

Have a look at the BIOS boot setting, (Esc then F9). It may be looking for a network connection to boot from instead of your hdd.

I have lost my installation disc

If your is custom built, then you'll ned to purchase a new installation disk.

If the product is pre-built, you can contact the manufacturer for installation disks, usually at a far lower cost than purchasing the OS seperately.

Otherwise, there are usually keys you can press on boot to load the recovery partition (if it has one).

I have a HP2133 which runs Vista Home Basic. I want to do a reinstall from the HP Recovery (D) but this appears to be empty and when I restart and use F11 I get the response that BOOTMGR is missing. Any...

This is not a Hardware problem It is purely problem of your Operating System Vista Home Basic.

  1. In order to solve this problem enter your PC's setup by pressing "F2" again and again. Some PCs accept "Del" key instead of "F2". You will enter the BIOS Setup. Give your CD/DVD highest priority to boot.
  2. Insert your Vista Home Basic disk in the CD/DVD drive and let it boot.
  3. The computer will ask you some simple information like keyboard layout currency and Language after this you will You will be asked to "Repair" or "Install" Windows Vista.
  4. Vista System Recovery tool will start.
  5. Select Startup repair.
  6. Your Vista will take care of the rest.
If this does not work follow the previous steps from 1 to 4
  1. Select "Command Prompt" instead of "Startup repair"
  2. Type in the Black command prompt Window bootrec/ rebuildbcd and press enter.
  3. You will be asked to enter an entry in the BCD store from Windows Installation path directory. Select "Yes".
Your problem will be solved.

Good Luck!

My laptop crashed and now will not boot up how do i get it to boot

Try This :

Need tio perform a recovery ... Which is formatting the entire hard disk and re installing the OS
This will end up loosing all your data
You need to disconnect each and everything connected to the notebook
SHut down the notebook completely
> As soon as you turn on the computer keep on tapping the F11 key (Instantly)
It will show the "Recovery manager "
Click on Advanced option
Select System recovery and click on next and complete the recovery .
If the F11 doesn't work need to purchase the recovery disk from HP (Ph. No.: 1-800-474-6836)
This will surely resolve the Issue

If the HD test failed you may need to replace the hard drive and reload the operating system. If you don't have the disks you will have to purchase a new copy of the OS. If you have the product key you might be able to use someone's copy of Windows and use your own Key.

The following message appears BOOTMGR is compressed press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart doing this produces the Advent Screen with the following options Press Delete key to run Setup Press F11 key to run Boot...

Delete key takes you into the BIOS Setting Setup that should be avoided if not sure of what it is all about, THOUGH it would be Ok to choose Load Default (Safe) Settings and then save and Exit (F10)? and Y or something like that.

F11 is a shortcut to a setting within BIOS Setup, it lets you choose Boot Device from List, normally you would try the Hard drive , as it is there that you want Windows to Load from unless of course you are trying to boot from a Windows CD/DVD then you would choose the CD or DVD from List....good luck

NTLDR missing

I can get into the Boot First Screen but can't seem to change anything within it... These screens seems to be selectively responsive to my key presses.... I can get the bios screen up, boot order screen up but not necessarily do anything within them... e.g. I can't restart the pc using ctrl alt del when the missing NTLDR message appears.... also I have put an XP disc in and it says to press any key to BOOT from CD .... I Do so but obviously it doesn't recognise it so it gives me the missing NTLDR message again! :(
