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

Hi,

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.


Regards.

BOOTMGR is missing


If the Bootmgr is missing then you will need to find either your original Windows installation disc or a Recovery disc in order to resolve this problem.

If you have one of the above discs, then boot from it and then take the recovery options which are provided.

See the Microsoft Help & Support page for details of the Recovery options provided for Windows 7.

Just find a generic Win 7 install disk (borrow one from a friend) and use it to install - the key for it should be on the sticker. This will fix everything else, including the botched install problems. Later download and install its drivers yourself from here

Bootmgr is missing.


Sorry to say this but you will need to do a complete restore from DVD of your operating system. Vista is not as forgiving as XP where you can rebuild the boot sector - If you have your vista recovery disc's do a complete recovery >> sorry - from now on always do backups of data you need to keep weekly.

Bootmgr is compressed


I know of three solutions, none of them will work without recovery or OS discs, and I can only guarantee one of them--the one that whipes your system. Try these in this order (assuming you have system discs);

#1 Boot from the system disc and choose the "repair" option. This is the quickest fix, and you lose anything.

#2 Boot from the system disc, and in your Start menu search type "Command Prompt". Open Command Prompt and type (hit enter after each line);
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h

#3 Run a full system recovery from your system discs.

Now, if you don't have your system discs, and you're running Windows Vista, there is another possible option. If your computer is fairly new then you probably have a WinRE partition for recovery, (a "factory image" drive)? I won't go into this now, if you have your discs option 1 or 2 should work for you.
