''BOOTMGR is missing'' I can't boot from Windows XP CD

''BOOTMGR is missing'' I was watching movie on my PC then suddenly my computer restarts then I got this first message ''Floppy Disk Fail(40)'' after that when I press ''F1 to continue'' the second message was ''BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart'' then my pc will hang up.
So what I did was I check the CMOS settings I saw that the Boot Up Floopy Drive was enabled that I think it must be disable(correct me if I'm wrong). Then after I restart my computer the ''Floppy Disk Fail(40)'' error gone. The only problem was ''BOOTMGR is missing'' see what I tried below.


Specs:

OS: Windows XP.
DVD-ROM
Desktop


What I tried:

- I changed the boot sequence to the BIOS changing ''Boot Up Floppy Drive'' [Enabled] to [Disabled] *I think Problem Solved*(correct me if I'm wrong)
- I already changed the boot sequence to the BIOS changing the ''First Boot Device [Hard Disk]'' to ''First Boot Device [CDROM]''.
- I removed my other hard disk on my computer.
- I disconnect IDE cables then reconnect it
- I disconnect the wires on the Hard Disk and reconnect it.





Problem:

- I can't boot from the Windows XP CD even if my First Boot Device was CD-ROM im getting the same error the message was --> ''Press any key to boot from CD.....'' then if I click any button nothing happens then after that the message ''BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart'' then my pc will hang.


I read the forums but doesn't solve my problem that to fix the ''BOOTMGR is missing'' error is you need enter ''Enter Recovery Mode'' or to the console type (caps on) bootcfg hit enter

3/ type (caps on) bootcfg /default etc etc....



Any help will be much apperciated.

Bootmgr is missing


Insert the original CD-ROM that you used to install Windows XP.
Restart the computer, and tell it to "boot" from the CD-ROM,
instead of the usual disk-drive.
Eventually, you'll get to a screen that asks "install" or "repair".
Choose "repair", to see if Windows will repair the 'BOOT-MANAGER' file.

Windows Vista?

Insert the installation CD. Once it boots from CD, click "Repair Your Computer", select the drive, and then "Startup Repair". This should fix it.
