Question about Acer TravelMate® 8210-6245 (LXTEH06118) PC Notebook
Bootmgr missing is a state when the system is not able to get the information about the bootable files or the OS.
This can easily be fixed by repairing the bootmgr provided you have the OS disk. You can order a recovery disk for Acer Travel mate from acer support site or if you can arrange for a installation Disk for your Operating system.
Incase you need any assistance to order an OS disk or recovery disk for your system please let me know.
Can you let me know if you are able to go to the Recovery options when you press Alt + F10 or it simply does not respond the keypress.
Please revert with your comments
Thank you for choosing Fixya

Without the recovery disks there's nothing much you can do to repair the XP operating system.
The only thing that i can suggest you do is try to boot the system up in safe made and hope that it lets you boot it up.
To get the system into safe mode restart the computer and repeatedly tap the F8 key, if it takes you through to a sub menu select “Last Good Known Configuration” hopefully this will work and allow you in to the operating system.
If this does not work then you will need a XP install CD to repair the OS. See if you can lend a CD from a friend. If you can then follow this instruction >>>>>
1. Arrange for the bootable Windows XP setup CD.
2. Boot from CD select R=Repair option, by pressing R key during the setup.
3. Select the windows installation.
4. You need to enter in the administrator password when requested, if you had not set any password for the administrator account just press enter without typing.
5. Type the following commands to repair the bootloader, where X is the drive letter for your CD / DVD drive.
COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C\:
COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:\
6. Eject CD-ROM and type exit to restart.
Good luck and please post back if you need anymore advice.

1. Error: BOOTMGR is missing:
• The following error opens when attempting to start the PC:
??¢ If you recently installed an additional hard drive, turn off the computer and remove the drive before using the following steps:
??¢ Open HP System Recovery:
??¢ CAUTION: Do not perform a system recovery! Stop at the first recovery screen.
- Press the F11 key repeatedly while the computer is starting.
- If you have a recovery disc, turn on the PC and insert the first recovery disc into the drive. Use the disc to enter the system recovery.
??¢ Select Microsoft Startup Repair tool and wait for repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer; even if the startup repair tool finds errors but cannot fix them.
??¢ If the error message persists, open the recovery manager screen as was done in step 1.
??¢ At the recovery manager screen, press ALT + D.
??¢ Enter the following text at the command prompt: bootrec /rebuildbcd
??¢ If bootrec displays "Add installation to boot list?", press y .
??¢ After bootrec completes successfully, the computer displays "The operation completed successfully".
??¢ To close the command prompt, enter the following text: exit
??¢ At the Recovery Manager screen, select Microsoft Startup Repair tool (again) and wait for startup repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer.
??¢ The error should no longer open. If it does, perform a system recovery, making sure to backup important files.
??¢ If you removed a hard drive before using these steps, replace the drive. If the error occurs again, make sure the additional hard drive is not set as an active drive. Only the main bootable drive should be set as active.
