    Clarification: Is it new, or old?

    If you looked at the problem description, you'd know he's using an Alienware 7500, which is a desktop PC.

    I have no idea how this happened, and it's unlikely, but maybe someone forgot to install the operating system. Call them, or send it back.

Hi Duncan,
Check if you have a CD in the CD-ROM drive or a USB drive plugged in. Suspect your PC has been set to boot from CD first or other devices (for older PCs possibly floppy disk) before booting up from the hard disk which is usually the last in the order of boot up.

HOW DO I GET MY PC TO LOAD THE NEW OS WHEN I KEEP GETTING AN ERROR MESSAGE SAYING BOOTMGR IS MISSING?


If you are on a computer that you usually use, and you get this message, it means that the Operating System startup files are corrupted, or erased. If you want to upgrade your PC to a new operating system, you need

1. to get a DVD of the new operating system,
2. Put it in your DVD drive
3. Turn on your computer. When your computer is turning on, press the F?? key that is displayed on your monitor when it starts up that says "Boot menu"
4. When the boot menu appears, tell your computer to boot from the DVD. When it finds the DVD, it will start your computer with the new operating system. Some operating systems allow you to repair your desktop/laptop, if the DVD is the same operating system that is on your desktop/laptop.

Bootmrg is missing


I suggest that you perform a Startup Repair.
Method 1: Startup Repair
1. Please insert the Windows Vista/7 DVD and reboot the computer.
2. When we are prompted to press a key to boot from the DVD, please press Enter or the space bar.
3. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.

Access the link below for more information about startup repair:
http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/5c59f8c1-b0d1-4f1a-af55-74f3922f3f351033.mspx

You can also try "Rebuild BCD".

Method 2: Rebuild BCD
1. Put the Windows Vista/7 installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another 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 bcdboot c:\windows /l en-us, and then press ENTER.
Note: C:\ should be changed to the default partition you installed Windows Vista/7.

Bootmgr is missing


If the message "bootmgr is missing" displays on system startup, this usually indicates that the Operating System has become corrupted somehow. Usually the course of action for this issue is a reformat of the machine. You will need your system discs to perform this task.

On startup I get this message, installation C:\program Files\Mindscape\AGCraft\pminst.DAT is bad or missing. What do I need to do?


Hi

The only solution for corrupted or missing file from operating system is either repair or reinstall the operating system.

In repair mode, it will not delete any files or softwares in your computer. Just mere repairing of operating system.

In reinstallation mode, it will wipe out all your files and softwares and I suggest you back up your files before running the reinstallation.

Here is the blog on how to reinstall the operating system with video. I mention also about the how to repair the OS. http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean
