Restart the PC. The BOOTMGR error could be a fluke.
Check your optical drives, USB Ports, and floppy drives for media. Often times, the "BOOTMGR is Missing" error will appear if your PC is trying to boot to a non-bootable disc, external drive, or floppy disk.
Reseat all internal data and power cables. BOOTMGR error messages could be caused by unplugged, loose, or malfunctioning power or controller cables.
Try replacing the PATA or SATA cable if you suspect it might be faulty.
Perform a Startup Repair of Windows. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files, including BOOTMGR.
Even though a Startup Repair is a common solution for BOOTMGR problems, don't worry if it doesn't fix your problem. Just continue troubleshooting - something will work.
Write a new partition boot sector to the Windows system partition to correct any possible corruption, configuration problem, or other damage.
The partition boot sector is an important piece in the boot process so if there's any issue with it, you'll see problems like "BOOTMGR is Missing" errors.
Rebuild the Boot Configuration Data (BCD). Similar to the partition boot sector, a corrupted or incorrectly configured BCD could cause BOOTMGR error messages.
Important: The following troubleshooting steps are much less likely to help fix your BOOTMGR problem. If you've skipped any of the above ideas then you may have overlooked a very likely solution to this problem!
Check the hard drive and other drive settings in BIOS and ensure they are correct. The BIOS configuration tells the computer how to use a drive so incorrect settings can cause problems, including BOOTMGR errors. Update your motherboard's BIOS. An outdated BIOS version can sometimes cause the "BOOTMGR is Missing" error.
Perform a clean installation of Windows. This type of installation will completely remove Windows from your PC and install it again from scratch. While this will almost certainly resolve any BOOTMGR errors, it's a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.
If you can't gain access to your files to back them up, please understand that you will lose them all if you continue with a clean installation of Windows!
Replace the hard drive and then install a new copy of Windows. If all else has failed, including the clean installation from the last step, you're most likely facing a hardware issue with your hard drive.
reinstall by booting from cd ...be sure ya have all drivers ...enter in bios by pressing del during the boot....select to boot from cd ...and save by F10 and ok after installing be sure that you re enter the boot order...not that its an issue ....but there is the possibility that ya may boot an operating system from mistake if ya have the disk inserted...and lose data ... ya can also try partition magic...or any similar programs...but it will work only for the partitions that doesn't contain windows...( or operating system )
In my humble opinion, the best option is to install a second (blank or larger) drive. Install some recovery software such as "easy recovery pro" or something that will be able to read files from a filesystem that has had the partition table written over. Start with trying to scan using FAT32, and in failing that, try NTFS. Restore the data to the second drive, format the first and partition as required. Copy the data back to the first drive to the partitions that you specified, and erase the data from the second drive. A free option may be pandora recovery, available at http://www.pandorarecovery.com/features/
Yuou must backup the data of d:\ in another harddrive or volume before doing this backup your data in another volume and then merge the data you can even copy the sectors from partion magic .Data can be recovered by using data recovery softwares.
Hi The same thing happened to me also with one pc I have running windows vista ultimate and freeBSD. Delete all partitions, format to NTFS and do a clean install of windows, and for a 80GB drive just use one partition for the whole drive and install windows on that drive, set the bios to boot from CD and during install windows will use the whole drive as 1 physical drive.One Partition and you should get about 72+GB MIN. You will not get a full 80gb due to the way windblows measures a mb= 1000b rather than 1024b and also special hidden files, recycle bin, drive info, and partition info, boot sector etc. HTH Zues
