    I have exactly the same problem to the letter. Did you ever get this fixed?

    I have an acer that I recently had the same problem here is what i did. Go in to the bios (if you changed anything) and hit f9 which restore it to factor settings then restart it and press alt + f10 and this will get you into the acer recovery. Then you can choosre the option that you believe to be best. One thing though this will restore to factory setting which means you will lose ALL you information but it does fix BOOTMGR error. Good luck.

Cannot restart laptop


"Boot with the Vista DVD, when it enters Setup hit your SHIFT-F10 keys Setup will run "cmd", and drops you to a command prompt that is running with SYSTEM privileges.

Then at the command prompt type the following (hitting <enter>) after each line.:

attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h
"

hope this helps! :)

Bootmgr missing


Windows Vista?

Insert the installation CD. Once it boots from CD, click "Repair Your Computer", select the drive, and then "Startup Repair". This should fix it.

Compressed boot manager


Windows Vista includes a new Boot Manager (BootMgr) that replaces the old NT Loader (Ntldr).

If the boot partition no longer can be found, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information

More Info MS KB 919529
More Info MS KB 927391

This can usually be solved by checking the boot devices, and if no problems found then use Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair".

If by accident having compressed the entire boot partition, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is compressed. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
This can usually be solved by using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". If that fails then use WinRE to enter the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands:
  • compact /U C:\bootmgr
  • compact /U C:\ntldr
