Bootmgr missing latitude 2100

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Bootmgr is missing

I don't work in a lab anymore but when I did (in XP/2000 days) this apparently is the equivalent of the 'NTLDR not found' error, which was always bad... you would have to go in through recovery console to repair it. Evidently the BOOTMGR is the new NTLDR, so your going to have to repair the OS. Check out these links I found, and good luck!

I am trying to help my friend fix his Compaq Presario CQ56 notebook The screen is saying BOOTMGR is missing Press CTRL +ALT + Del to restart.. but when you do that it will just have at the bottom Press...

NO OS STATED by you, makes help impossible. (near)
CQ56 (2010 PC)
It looks like Windows XP is dead? that it?
Or w7 as many had, it matter, due to the file structures are
not the same. at all.

the fix is easy if you have boot disk or cd or stick
the dos command are easy to command, for fixing any lost boot files.
what makes you think the HDD is even good. I'd not.
not ever.
the hp links are dead to this PC but using google site search
the good is there still and tells you the F11 key works
you boot the pc (turn it on) and hammer the F11 key
and the recovery partitions run.
if not the HDD is corrupted.

the F11 key if working pops a recovery page
pick startup files repair,.
end story
if the hDD is bad the story gets longer,..
the HP site tell me it was W7 new, (did you upgrade it to 10 free last year, we cant guess what is there or how it got there, see?)
I run knoppix boot disk /stick and run disk test here

recovering any OS this way, with a bad HDD is a wasted day.
there is no reason to do that. run DISK SMART and TEST THERE.

here are my recover pages.

see startup repair, this fixes the file you said were missing.
mine has and automatic repair option

My laptop says that the btmgr is missing when i start it. an error occoured during a reset of factory settings. im prompted to ctrl + alt + del to restert. it works but goes back to the btmgr missing page....


If you for some strange reason have lost your Vista DVD, then you can also use a Windows 2000 / XP install CD and enter the recovery console instead and execute the following commands:

attrib -c c:\bootmgr
attrib -c c:\ntldr

compact /U C:\bootmgr
compact /U C:\ntldr
or if you can get to command prompt type fix bootmgr
and fixmbr

Bootmgr is missing on Windows XP System. Gateway

Download this Recovery Console BootCD

Burn the image (ISO) to CD.
Boot from the newly created Recovery Console BootCD
Log into the Administrator account (press 1 then press enter)
On the command prompt type: chkdsk c: /r (and then press enter) Note one space after "c:")
Once CheckDisk has finished repairing the faults, type Exit, and then Restart (remove the BootCD)

Hello the f11 recovery doesnt work instantly goes to BOOTMGR is missing , wat else can i do ?

Did you (or somebody else) re-install Windows on your computer?
If so, you (or they) may have wiped-out the "recovery partition".

Since you have a COMPAQ, contact them, and order a replacement set of "System Recovery" CD-ROMs. Re-install Windows (which will reinstate the "recovery" partition) from those disks.
