To repair missing or corrupted system file/s, boot up with the Windows installation CD then -
Press R to repair when instructed.
Press 1 or Enter to repair the C:\Windows folder.
Then type chkdsk /r and then press Enter.
The repair process will take quite a long time.

SOURCE: Windows Failed to load because Kernel file is missing, or corrupt

Are you talking about two problems on one computer? If so, the first problem doesn't matter until the second one is fixed. If you are talking about two different computers, then the problems can be each addressed.

For the hard drive that is not recognized, where did it come from? If you purchased it used, you may be out of luck. It sounds like you have a pretty good idea how computers work, and it also sounds like this hard drive does not work at all.

If these are both the same computer, then replacing the hard drive with a known working hard drive will most likely provide you with a solution.

I wish I had better news for you.

SOURCE: cant install OS BOOTMGR is missing

Usually the installer should have a function to allow you to wipe the disk, or delete partitions.

If it doesn't, and you do not care about the hard disk content, and it is acceptable to wipe out the entire hard disk, you can do so in Linux.

(There is a utility which will do everything for you - Darik's Boot and Nuke, you find it at http://www.dban.org/ . I'm also giving you the "manual" instructions below, though).

Boot with Ubuntu Live, open Terminal, become root with 'su'.

Now you need to know how your disk is "seen" by Linux. Since you only have the one disk and nonexistent disks will fail, we can try all the likely hard disk names. The first command that does NOT fail saying "No such device" is the good one:

fdisk /dev/sda
fdisk /dev/hda
fdisk /dev/cciss/c0d0
fdisk /dev/rd/c0d0
fdisk /dev/ida/c0d0

One of these commands (likely the first or second) will give you a menu ending in "Command (m for help)". type "p" and press Enter to list partitions; there should be only one and it should be a Linux type, probably 83. If it isn't, stop - something's wrong. But it should be.

The first column will say something like "/dev/sda3". Note the number at the end, here "3". You'll likely have "1".

Now type, "d" and press Enter. You'll be asked which partition to delete. Type the same number you saw earlier. Type "w" and Enter to save changes and exit. Type "q" and Enter to exit without changes. The partition can still be recovered, but the disk is now "unlocked".

Reboot and install the OS of your choice. The previous hard disk contents will be permanently lost, and you'll get a shiny new empty partition with a working OS.

You can also erase the disk without using fdisk (but you still need to know how it's named, and for that you can use fdisk) by typing

dd if = /dev/zero of = /dev/sda bs=1M count = 12

Here we suppose the disk turned out to be /dev/sda.

This will write twelve megabytes of zeroes to the beginning of the disk, effectively wiping any OS information there could be there. All disk data are as good as lost. The disk is now, to all installing purposes, a perfect blank. Reboot and install the OS of your choice.

Just for the record, omitting "count" will zealously wipe out the whole hard disk surface, all partitions, all data, irretrievably (except using residual hysteresis detection equipment - doubt if even NSA would take the trouble). This can be handy when decommissioning computers.

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.

Causes of BOOTMGR ErrorsThere 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.

Another reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boot 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. Fixes for BOOTMGR Errors
  1. Restart the PC. The BOOTMGR error could be a fluke.

  2. Perform a startup repair of Windows. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files, including BOOTMGR. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.

  3. Check your floppy and optical drives for media. Often times, the "BOOTMGR is Missing" error will appear if your PC is trying to boot to a non-bootable floppy disk or CD/DVD.

    Note: If you find that this is the cause of your issue and it's happening regularly, you might want to consider changing the boot order in BIOS so the hard drive is listed as the first boot device.

  4. 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.

    Note: There's usually an Auto setting in BIOS for hard disk and optical drive configurations which is usually a safe bet if you're not sure what to do.

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