Windows doesn't start and there is an error message

The msg reads something like insert windows discs and then click fix my computer. I don't have the discs and the supplier is saying that I am not supposed to have them. Is this true - I thought that all computers should be supplied with the discs in the event of this very problem. It won't let me start it in safe mode either when pressing f8.

It depends. Some of the computer stores give an Operating System disc when a customer purchases a computer package but one thing for sure they will give you a system drivers disc for your unit.  In your case now, you should have a boot media disc (Operating System) installer for you to install a fresh copy of your operating system or repair your Operating System problem you are facing now. Make sure you are setting your bios boot sequence to cd, floppy and last will be your harddisk.

Big trouble. Try safe mode, if possible. Don\'t use recovery procedure, just manually remove unnecessary things. Finally backup your data, and reinstall whole system?

The first thing I would try is to try to start the computer is Safemode. Safemode is a way of loading Windows without loading all of it. It only starts up with the most basic stuff that you need to help you diagnose other problems.

To start in Safemode, turn off the computer. Turn on the computer, and immediately begin pressing the F8 key. Press it once every half of a second, and keep doing this over and over and over. If the computer allows you to get into Safemode, then you have a chance to try to Restore the computer to an earlier point.

If you cannot accomplish anything using this method, then you may need to find someone who has an "external cd drive." This will make it possible for you to put the original Windows discs in and do a repair that way. This assumes you have those discs! If you don't have the discs, you may be able to buy them from Advent. I would suggest going to their web site to see if they offer any other solutions!

I just looked at the Advent site located here: Advent. It appears that your recovery discs are actually not burned onto discs when you first get the machine. You are supposed to put one of those USB drives (thumb drive) into the machine when it is still working right and copy the recovery program onto the USB drive. Maybe if you can get the computer to start in Safemode, then you might be able to copy the recovery program as instructed on the Advent website above. Just click that link and read about it.

Bootmgr missing error on startup


There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.

The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors an outdated BIOS and damaged or loose IDE cables

Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a
non-bootable source.


This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from.

make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives



How to Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2083-system-repair-disc-create.html


"This will show you how to create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options if you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your

Windows installation disc, or can't access the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer."

or

If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download
http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/


a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.


b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click 'Next'.


Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install


Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the dispay.


c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options. Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?"


d) Click 'Repair and restart' and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.


e) Click 'Next' at the keyboard selection prompt and when the 'System Recovery Options' screen appears verify that the "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows" is selected.
Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed. Click the 'Next' button.


f) Now from the menu list select the 'Command Prompt' option.


g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands:


bootrec.exe /fixmbr


bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message)


bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd


h) Close the command prompt window and click the 'Startup Repair' option.


i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" and "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".


These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don't send options.


J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don't send window. Next click on the 'View advanced options for system recovery and support' option and from the main menu once again click 'Startup Repair'.


This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted "Startup Repair could not detect a problem", click 'Finish' and run the 'Startup Repair' option one more time, click 'Finish', and then remove the System Repair DVD and click 'Restart'. Reboot the computer.


hope this helps

Hi. Error 0146 is pertaining to a failing hard drive. You can still try to reinstall Windows Vista by requesting for a CD from Dell by contacting them.

If they fail to send you a CD or if the error still comes up after reinstalling Vista, then you need to replace your hard drive.
