You don't need a recovery disc. What you do is when turning on your computer, wait for the dialog and hit the DEL key. This will bring you to the BIOS menu. In there, you will find a setting to disable Fast Boot, save it then exit and your computer will reboot again. It should give you the option to change the boot sequence.

    Fixes for BOOTMGR Errors



    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.



      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.

    3. Check the boot sequence in BIOS and make sure the correct hard drive or other bootable device is listed first, assuming you have more than one drive. If the wrong drive is listed first, you could see BOOTMGR errors.



      I know I sort of hit on this in the troubleshooting step above, but I wanted to call out specifically that you might have the wrong hard drive listed, as many BIOS/UEFI systems allow you to specify specific a particular hard drive to be booted from first.

    4. 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.

    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. 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!

    8. 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.

    9. Update your motherboard's BIOS. An outdated BIOS version can sometimes cause the "BOOTMGR is Missing" error.

    10. 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!

    11. 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.

SOURCE: i have hp pavilion dv6000 i had a problem about recovery manager

Did you attempt to load recovery/factory image from hidden partition and if so did you follow User Manual or Guide re instruvtions? if so there should have been no problems. I would try again though do it slowly and carefully when choosing Options so that you don't change Partitions where the Default Software is.

Was it Alt and F10 buttons when powering up from a Shutdown, i.e Cold Boot?

SOURCE: cant read disc.boot manager missing

If the boo sector has been corrupted, you will need to use the included recovery disk or a full copy of Windows to fix it. You will have to boot from the CD, go into recovery mode (usually by pressing R). The the MBR will have to be rebuilt/repaired. There may be some more steps depending on what was broken, so look up other options for fixing the boot sector.

If you cannot recover you will need to reinstall the OS from scratch or restore it to factory settings. Before you do this, you may be able to recover your personal day by connected the drive to another computer and transferring them to a Thumb drive or another HDD.

This is all based on the assumption the HDD did not fail. If that is the case, your data is lost.

Try inserting the windows recovery disc and reboot the machine. At the language screen, bottom left, click repair your computer. At the recovery options screen, click on startup repair. This should recover the boot manager file. Reboot machine when completed.

Boot MGR IS MISSING


What actual operating system do you have?
Windows XP does not use the Boot Manager as this was introduced with Windows Vista or Windows 7 and higher versions.

If you are missing the Boot Mgr for Windows Vista or 7, then you will need to do a Startup Repair which you can do using either a Recovery CD if you have one, or else using the Vista or 7 installation disc.

You have formatted the hard drive (containing Boot Manager) using recovery disk 1.
That's why the error message.

Just insert disk 1 again.
Shut down the computer (press & hold the power button for a minute).
Restart.

Follow the instructions that come up.

If it doesn't help, reseat the hard drive. (open the back cover, take out hard drive, reconnect it)
Also you may go to BIOS (tap F1 while booting) and set the cd-drive as the first boot device.

Hope it helps.

Windows boot manager problem acer aspire 5920


Creating recovery discs After setting up the computer for the first time, be sure to create a set of recovery discs of the full factory image. the recovery discs are used to start up (boot) the computer and recover the operating system and software to factory settings in case of system instability or failure.

Boot Manager is missing


you can often fix it right back up using the original Vista installation disk. Which comes with a pretty extensive System Recovery Tool that's got lots of options. Set your computer to boot from DVD (using the Boot setting in the BIOS), insert the disc and restart. Vista will prompt you for language and keyboard layout options, then ask if you want to reinstall Vista or repair your installation. You want Repair. From there Vista's System Recovery Tool will take over. this is the only way to get back from the dreaded boot manager missing error.
