Bootmgr is missing

Bootmgr is the replacement for NTLDR in Vista and Win 7. NTLDR (NT loader) is the OS component which literally started the operating system in XP/2000. In the past I have had to use recovery console to go in and repair the OS (this is only available on the Windows disc). I would say in this case you will have to do the same, repair the operating system using the Windows disc.

This article is a how-to on fixing this issue, if you up for it:

How to fix ntdlr is missing?

substitute the NTLDR file in the right place. if you have access to another computer, copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM which is available from the recovery CD which comes with computer. If you do not have the recovery CD, they were available from another computer using the same Operating System (Windows XP in your case). The location was C:\i386\ntldr C:\i386\ then use a bootable disc to restart the computer (the Win XP bootable CD may not work, a Win 98 bootable CD will work). After entering MS DOS mode, copy these 2 files to the C drive in the proper location. After restart, then pressing F10 on start up (used for system recovery on my computer), start the repair of Windows via system recovery (which was not possible earlier). This reinstalled all Windows drivers and system files, while preserving all data on my computer.

Black screen NTDLR Press any key to restart

Are you saying it came with a recovery disk that you dont have anymore. If thats the case you may need to aquire this from acer. If you go to their web site you can usually find a way to order this disc for your machine.
Find someone who has an xp disc and use it to go to recovery console then restore MBR files. NTLDR is the error meaning your master boot record has been damaged.

Ntldr missing

You need to do full system recovery to boot up your pc again. NTLDR is a hidden file that is needed to boot windows. Your laptop should come with a recovery disc to re install Windows.
Hope this helps.

Failed recovery


If you are using recovery CDs, with or without the NTLDR present in the HD should work. Perhaps what is needed is for you to set the laptop to boot from the CD. This could be done in the CMOS/BIOS configuration.

Alternately, if only the NTLDR is missing and everything else works OK, you can try removing the HD from the PC and connect it as a slave or an external USB mass storage device to a 2nd PC. It will be a simple case of copying the 2nd PC's NTLDR to the HD missing it.

In some instances, memory problem triggers this message as well. You can try cleaning the memory's little gold contacts/pins and/or try replacing them.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
