Hi,

Solution 1: Get your Vista installation DVD and pop it into your drive.
- Then restart your computer.
- Set your computer to boot from DVD or CD in your BIOS.

Vista will ask you for language and keyboard layout information, after which you will be asked if you want to re-install Vista or repair your existing installation.
Select Repair. After which Vista's System Recovery Tool will start.



Select Startup Repair and let Vista do its thing! That really is all there is to it!


If that doesn't work try this:


SOLUTION 2

If the previous method does not resolve the problem, you can rebuild the BCD store by using the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment. To do this, follow these steps:

- Get your Vista installation DVD and pop it into your drive.
- Then restart your computer.
- Press a key when you are prompted.
- Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next
- Click Repair your computer
- Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next
- In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt
- Type bootrec /rebuildbcd and then press ENTER

• If Bootrec runs successfully, it will present you with the installation path of a Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type Yes . A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.

• If Bootrec cannot locate any missing Windows installations, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it. To do this, type the following commands in the order shown below: (Remember to press ENTER after each command)

bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

bootrec /rebuildbcd


- Restart the computer.

if a friend has the xp cd, ask to use it, USE YOUR KEY CODE LOCATED ON A RAINBOW STICKER...usually on bottom of laptops, and back of pc desktops, this is your best bet, make sure your operating system is the one you both are using, ie...xp home edition on your puter, if your friend has professional, your key code wont work....make sure you both use home...or professional...sticker will tell you what your running.....a boot isk pretty much is obsolete with xp, windows 98 used em, me..as well....up to windows 2000, cd needed, downloaded the file really wont do it...i have never had sucess doing it....you can also contact the puter company and like $20.00 they should be able to send you the factory default restore/recovery disks, i am doing that with a friends toshiba now...waiting for the disks...that will be a way better thing tho, you'll have all info and drivers and os for it......good luck...shia

SOURCE: boot mgr is missing

Boot Manager is missing 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 Check points for fixing missing boot-manager: Check that your boot device is configured properly Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". Boot Manager is compressed 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 OR maybe try this first. Check points for fixing compressed boot-manager: Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". If the above doesn't solve the problem then boot into WinRE again, but when selecting the Vista-installation, then press "Load Drivers" (Instead of "Next") and use the mini Windows Explorer to right-click the boot-drive and deselect "Compress this Drive" and choose Apply to sub-folders and files. If that also fails then boot into WinRE again, and go to the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands: compact /U C:\bootmgr compact /U C:\ntldr If you for some strange reason have lost your Vista DVD, then you can also use a Windows 2000 / XP install CD and enter the recovery console instead and execute the following commands: attrib -c c:\bootmgr attrib -c c:\ntldr


Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

I could have told you you were loading Windows 7 by the symptoms. Try running a Malware program with a register edit-register function in it. If you are switching from XP Pro. you will need to clear your register and all command and drive to . Set BIOS to boot from DVD/CD first then set the hard drive to boot second. Windows. Also if you have access to another computer ask microsoft for tech support.

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.
