SOURCE: Bootmgr image is corrupt.system cannot boot

It is possible the Master boot Record has become corrupt. You can repair it using a tool for that purpose. Here is a KB article explaining your options and how to use the tool:

First try the Recovery Console options which you access via the F8 key. As your system is booting up, right before, or right when you see your manufacturers logo, but before you see the Windows Logo, begin tapping the F8 key until you see a menu of white words on a black background. Once there follow the instructions at the top most section of the article.

If this does not work you will need the Vista installation or Recovery disk to continue with the more advanced actions. You can use ANY Vista disk, so if you have a friend or family member who has one borrow it and then boot from it. Sometimes you must change the boot menu in order to boot from a disk. If it doesn't boot then you must enter the boot menu and change it so your CD/DVD drive is first in line. If you must do this you will also need to go back and reverse the change so you can boot from your hard disk to see if it worked. It is easy to alter the boot menu. Usually, the key(s) you press are shown on the screen as you boot. Write this down and then reboot and press the key(s). Then, simply locate the appropriate section and make the alterations. You must use your arrow keys to move around the options. There should be instructions on use of keys and how to exit, or save changes and exit.

If you do not know anyone with the Vista disk you will need to contact your manufacturer and request one. Usually all they will do is charge shipping, but you will have to wait until it arrives to try this repair. Sorry about that. That is one reason I insist on a installation or restoration disk when I buy a pre-built system. The manufacturers want to give out as few as possible, and in doing so tell people they don't need the disk because of their hidden recovery partition. However, the hidden recovery partition does not allow for repairs, only putting the system back into factory condition which wipes out everything you have added, all of your changes, and system preferences. Also, if you have not backed up your files you lose them too.

This is the best I can do with the information given. Somebody else may have other idea on how to fix your issue. Good luck and I hope it is simple to correct.

I will TRY to supply you with the image.
If you give me your address by e-mail, I will send you a FREE temp OS (Partition Magic) with the bootmgr image and instructions on how to nake it work again.
The temp OS does not store data onto your HDD and is used if your compuer is in a unusable state.
I will include the XP, Vista and 7 boot images.

BOOTMGR is missing,

  1. Restart the PC. The BOOTMGR error could be a fluke.
  2. Check your optical drives, USB Ports, and floppy drives for media. Often times, the "BOOTMGR is Missing" error will appear if your PC is trying to boot to a non-bootable disc, external drive, or floppy disk.

  3. Reseat all internal data and power cables. BOOTMGR error messages could be caused by unplugged, loose, or malfunctioning power or controller cables.

    Try replacing the PATA or SATA cable if you suspect it might be faulty.
  4. Perform a Startup Repair of Windows. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files, including BOOTMGR.

    Even though a Startup Repair is a common solution for BOOTMGR problems, don't worry if it doesn't fix your problem. Just continue troubleshooting - something will work.
  5. Write a new partition boot sector to the Windows system partition to correct any possible corruption, configuration problem, or other damage.

    The partition boot sector is an important piece in the boot process so if there's any issue with it, you'll see problems like "BOOTMGR is Missing" errors.
  6. Rebuild the Boot Configuration Data (BCD). Similar to the partition boot sector, a corrupted or incorrectly configured BCD could cause BOOTMGR error messages.

    Important: The following troubleshooting steps are much less likely to help fix your BOOTMGR problem. If you've skipped any of the above ideas then you may have overlooked a very likely solution to this problem!
  7. Check the hard drive and other drive settings in BIOS and ensure they are correct. The BIOS configuration tells the computer how to use a drive so incorrect settings can cause problems, including BOOTMGR errors.
    Update your motherboard's BIOS. An outdated BIOS version can sometimes cause the "BOOTMGR is Missing" error.
  8. Perform a clean installation of Windows. This type of installation will completely remove Windows from your PC and install it again from scratch. While this will almost certainly resolve any BOOTMGR errors, it's a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

    If you can't gain access to your files to back them up, please understand that you will lose them all if you continue with a clean installation of Windows!
  9. Replace the hard drive and then install a new copy of Windows. If all else has failed, including the clean installation from the last step, you're most likely facing a hardware issue with your hard drive.
