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

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. Please include information about its Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

You also don't say what happened and what fault caused you to need to try to run the recovery program.

It seems the recovery CD has altered the Boot Sector of the Hard Drive.

If the data on the hard drive is important:

Unplug and turn off the laptop > remove the battery > use a small screwdriver to open the Hard Drive compartment with the picture of a small stack of CDs next to it > remove the retaining screw or clip > remove the Hard Drive > use a Hard Drive Dock or an External 2.5" Hard Drive Enclosure (for this you have to remove the small silver Hard cradle that holds the Hard drive fast in the laptop) or an IDE/SATA to USB Connection Cable to connect the Hard Drive to a 2nd Computer > Back up all important data to an external storage device.

Reinstall the hard drive into the laptop > insert the installation disk > install a Windows XP Disc > Boot from the CD > When you reach the 2nd repair screen, press R to Repair XP.

If you have a different Operating System follow the same process > select Start Up Repair (for Vista or Windows 7)

I hope this helps.

I have the windows root system 32 nostkrl problem,it did'nt come with a reboot disk. how do i reboot it?


As long as the recovery partition is still on the hard drive, you can try doing a factory restore on it by pressing either F10 or F11 when you first turn on the laptop.

If it doesn't go into the restore then your going to need either Windows Xp or Windows Vista and then reload the OS onto the hard drive.

Then after that you'll need to go to Acer's Support website and download the drivers for your laptop so the hardware will work.

How to reboot?


Hi,
Reboot simply means"Restart"...., I dont think you will not be able to restart the system....

If it was a "Re-installation", then, you should have the Operating system CD with you, to re-install it...,.

Installing windows XP - Error encountered


Can you reboot and get into windows or is now corrupt?

What do you mean by 'uninstalled XP'??

You cant uninstall it unless you format the drive, in which case the recovery discs are now probably useless as they rely on a folder on the HDD called i386.

Recovery discs normally dont have the OS on them, they rely on the I386 folder to gather info about the computer and then restores it to the state when it was new.

If you can acess the system, reboot and go into the bios and change the boot sequence to CD, then insert the first recovery disc. then save the settings and the computer will reboot and start the recovery process again, this should clear up the error.

If it does not it will be because the i386 folder is missing in which case you can either explore the recovery discs for it or you will have to buy a copy of Windows XP.

Laptop won't boot up


This is an operating system error, and sometimes indicates a hard drive failure. Start by running a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. This usually takes care of it, if it doesn't, reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

Problem starting notebook


This is a problem with the operating system and sometimes an indicator that the hard drive has failed or is starting to fail. Start by doing a system repair with your recovery disc, if it will not repair, then do a complete reload of the operating system. If you have any problems (ie... missing file 32 dll) during or after the reload, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.
