Hi,

Restart the laptop and press the F2 key, this will take you into the BIOS.
Look in the BIOS for Boot order and change that to start the CD/DVD as the first boot device.


Regards.

Boot mgr missing message


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.
