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 ,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

I Have a Toshiba , that the BOOTMGR is missing,...

This could be a very complicated repair. You should try some easy solutions first. A missing bootmgr means your computer cannot find the start up files on the hard drive. So maybe the hard drive is loose. Open up the computer and check the hard drive cables. Also check the Bio start up to be sure it is booting to the hard drive.
You can also try connection your hard drive to another computer and running disk repair from Windows or other hard drive repair programs.

Do you have any recovery or restore disks? try those.

You can try to install the trial version of
On a computer and add your problem hard drive to it and try to fix.
Acronis support is great. You can ask them if any of their programs will rebuild your bootmgr file.

Else you need Windows disks. You don't need yours, just any that are the same version as what is on your computer. It is safe to borrow from a friend.
Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation CD/DVD
Boot from Windows Vista installation disc, select language and keyboard or input method, click Next and choose to Repair your computer. Then you will need to select the operating system that you want to repair. In the System Recovery Options dialog box click Command Prompt and type the following:
Bootrec.exe /FixMbr
Bootrec.exe /FixBoot

Powers on briefly then gets a DOS screen "BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"...and over and over

This is a pretty easy fix as long as you have your Windows 7 disk handy.
That's a good tutorial on how to fix it.
If you don't have your operating system's disk, it's still possible to fix, just a little harder.
That will help you create a disk that will fix the problem.
Please rate this response if it helped! Thanks!

Sir i had bought sony vaio laptop which showing text; boot mgr missing and press ctrl alt del to restart, pls give me a solution

I assume you are running vista because bootmgr.exe is used to run vista from startup. "bootmgr" is short for boot manager, and without this, your computer simply doesnt know how to start vista from your hard drive.

To fix it is quite simple. First of all go into your BIOS menu (usually press F2 or DEL when prompted when you turn on your pc). Make sure your cd/dvd drive is set to be your primary boot device. This way you can run your setup disk in the next step.

Insert your Vista install disk and restart your system. Press any key when prompted to begin running the dvd. Wait for it to give you a list of choices. This may take a while as it often stays a blank screen for some time. Choose "repair", and the setup will auto detect your operating system. It will also fix your bootmgr.exe at this point. If it does not, you can go on to the next screen and choose "startup repair".

When turn it on it says bootmgr missing what can i do

You boot sector on the hard drive is faulty.

Fixing "BOOTMGR is missing" Error While Trying to Boot Windows Vista If your Windows Vista computer has encountered the dreaded “BOOTMGR is missing” error, you aren’t alone. If the problem isn’t hardware related you can fix it with relative ease as long as you have a Windows Vista DVD handy.
If you don’t have one, you can create a Windows Vista repair disk using our guide.
Boot off the Windows Vista DVD and then click Next at the first prompt:
You should see a link in the lower left-hand side for “Repair your computer”
The installation process will attempt to find your Vista installation directory. If there’s more than one in the list, select the correct one and then use the Next button again.
Click the first link for “Startup Repair”
The installation process will repair the system, and then prompt for you to reboot.
Alternatively you could have chosen the Command Prompt option instead, and use the following command to fix the boot options only:
bootrec /fixboot
At this point you should be able to reboot your computer, remove the DVD and everything should be working.

Thank you.

Vista bootmgr is missing not corrected by insalling dvd

I had the same problem. To fix it, I went in on the command prompt. I got there using the Vista installation disk. I think it gives options to use the cmd prompt. Then I looked through the computer to find where the boot manager was located. I had two partitions and Vista installed the boot manager on a partition that wasn't C:\. Once I found where it was located, I used the CMD prompt to manually copy (in case I was wrong) the bootmgr over to the C:\ drive that I booted from. Once that was done, I did a shut down, reboot with the Vista disk and repaired Vista using their repair or restore menu on the disk. It worked.

I previously did a search on the internet and was pointed in the right direction although their solution didn't work for me. This did. Good luck with fixing your computer. Vista is like Win98 on drugs!
