HP mini will not start up after factory reset it says bootmgr missing

Wow, what a bummer. Now is the time you need a CD/DvD Drive because you need to use a repair disc or operating system disc to fix this. Never buy a computer that does not have a CD drive on it. You'll be sorry. Ever wondered why HP is getting out of the hardware business? The problems with Tablets and Netbooks were more than they could muster.

If you can get to a dos command prompt (black screen with white lettering) there are some commands you can try to remedy this. But most times you will need a disk to boot from to get the dos command. Maybe your startup repair will give you the option to get to the Recovery Console for the dos command.

In the dos command prompt you would type the following commands and press enter after each one below.
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot
bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

After you execute the command above reboot and see if it is corrected. If not see if you can run the following command and press enter after it.
chkdsk /r

The above command will run well over an hour and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, but that is normal. Just let it run to completion then reboot.

Starting problem

Sounds like your boot files or operating system has a corrupt or missing file. You will need a system disc to fix it. Have you tried booting in SAFE Mode? Turn off the computer, then turn it back on and immediately hit the F8 key repeatedly. When you see the options screen take SAFE MODE. Once you get it to boot up click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore.. Select a restore date that is before you started having problems and let it run. Sometimes the restore points get corrupt or missing. If unsuccessful, like I said before you'll need a system disc so that you can boot into the recovery console and type the command: chkdsk /r This will run for well over an hour so be patient. It does not destroy any data, documents, music, pictures, videos, programs, etc.

My laptop will not boot. Says error occurred attempting to read the boot configuration data. Tried unplugging unit removing battery and put in operating system disc. None of this has solved problem.

this is a problem with the boot sector data ...the quick fix will be like this :
insert the operating system disk ...and restart ...choose to boot from the disk ..if it is not set to boot from the disk as priority ...it will not ask ya to press any key to boot from the disk ...in this case you have to go to bios by pressing del or F2 on start ...and there select the cd/dvd device as primary booting device ...press f10 to save changes and reboot...
it will start configuring your operating system again ....but after loading files ...when it gets to the first repair...just choose it ...(R) and it will get to a repairing sectore where it will ask for a command..
the proper command to solve your problem si : fixboot ...this wwill make it rewrite the boot sector and solve the problem ...
if you do not manage ...just let it reinstall the operating system ..but save the files before in another partition ...

How to restore it back to system setting

Are you wanting to restore your laptop to an earlier time, if so insert the "backup" disc from Toshiba and follow commands to restore to earlier time, If the disc does not boot upon startup, go into Bios and re-arrange boot sequence to boot CD first.

How repair redhat operating system the ask ctrl -d

whoops! You'll have to boot off of an installation disc, maybe Knoppix or Ubuntu if the RedHat install disc doesn't work. Once you do that you should find the old version of your fstab (often with a tilde ~ after it), restore the old version, and go from there!

The system cannot find the file specified

You don't mention what Operating System you are using.
If its Vista, just insert the Restore CD, and afetr answering a couple of questions, the CD will ask you if you want to repair the boot file.
Select yes, and Windows Vista will do the rest for you.
If you are using Windows XP,
It appears that you have a corrupted or missing file, probably due to a bad shutdown, or an infection of some sort.
You should use your RESTORE CD, and boot from it.
Select the Repair option, and perform a CHKDSK /p command.
This command will not only check for your disk integrity but also check and replace basic files needed for your computer to start up properly.

My 0xc000000c "Restore Failed" prompt seemed to be the result of disk surface damage on the restore disk. After burning the restore disk to a new disk, the restore proceeded normally. Try making a copy of the original restore disk to a known good blank disk.

Startup screen freezes

using the system restore disk, boot the laptop and choose repair, run chkdisk /r this repairs the system files, if this does not fix the problem, using the same system disk do a restore.
