BOOTMGR is missing shows on startup


If you got that error then you probably have windows vista. This just normally requires the Vista repair, which is quite different from the XP repair. First boot to the Vista disc that you have, pretty much at this point it will setup your keyboard and language and then you get to choose startup repair and sit back and wait.

Installing windows vista on compaq presario 750 computer stops responding during installation now can't boot or startup


Vista installations inbult drive format tool is not so good, and causes errors, so i recomment u format the drive with some linux live cd's or some other bootup type partition tools. Then do a clean install. The problem should be solved if u hav min system requirements for vista.

Boot Manager


You will want to do a Windows Recovery Environment Startup Repair, follow the instructions below to fix this issue:
To access the WinRE using the Vista install disk:
  1. Boot from the Vista install disk
  2. Choose your language settings and click "Next"
  3. On the bottom of the screen click the link "Repair Your Computer"
  4. Select the Vista installation to repair and click "Next" and it will launch WinRE
The following options are available in WinRE:
  • Startup Repair - It will repair the boot manager files and restore critical files required for booting Windows Vista.

    After attempting to repair the system it will display a Startup Repair diagnosis and repair log with the different Test Performed and the probably root cause.

Compressed boot manager


Windows Vista includes a new Boot Manager (BootMgr) that replaces the old NT Loader (Ntldr).

If the boot partition no longer can be found, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information

More Info MS KB 919529
More Info MS KB 927391

This can usually be solved by checking the boot devices, and if no problems found then use Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair".

If by accident having compressed the entire boot partition, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is compressed. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
This can usually be solved by using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". If that fails then use WinRE to enter the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands:
  • compact /U C:\bootmgr
  • compact /U C:\ntldr
