Question about Computers & Internet
Is the DVD drive above the HDD in the boot order? If not, or if you are not certain, press F2 when the Dell splash screen first appears to go into Setup. Then go to the BOOT tab and change the order so that the HDD is lower than the DVD drive. Save the settings and re-start the computer. Watch for a prompt on a black screen to press a key to boot from the CD\DVD.
Good luck, and please let me know if you need further assistance.

There 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
Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott 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.
make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
if its a flat ribbon 40 pin IDE it will be the fist to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs data and power to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
also make sure you have set it boot from you hard drive in BIOS
hope this helps
