You did not say what you downloaded. You sound as if you have an attack on
you boot manger from a virus. If it starts run your virus protector.

Re: bootmgr missing

I downloaded some real player software to enable me to play different media
formats and real games software. At the moment I can't get past the bootmgr
is missing mesage I have checked in setup and my hard drive is at the top of
the boot list as other people have had a problem with the computer trying to
boot from the wrong drive in set up. I don,t have a vista repair disk as my
laptop came preloaded with vista. I have made a backup of my computer noto my
usb hard drive, would I be able to boot from this external hard drive?

RE: bootmgr missing

Well all I did was run Disk Cleanup, rebooted and bam, missing bootmgr. I
also have an OEM copy and no disk and I think the partition with the install
system is gone. When I use another install disk and run repair it doesn't fix
the problem.

I tried command prompt and can read the contents of C drive which is all
there, but there has got to be a way to access it that isn't apparent from
any of the answers I have read here.

Re: bootmgr missing

Hello, I'm getting the problem on my laptop with the "bootmgr is missing" i'm trying to do a clean install of vista on my dell laptop, but my installation disc isn't loading. It looks like it is loading the disc but is stops on a black screen with just the mouse pointer and nothing else. it failed an installation before and had shown an error when it restarted, and now the "bootmgr is missing" error is there and booting from a cd/dvd is not loading my disc to repair or install a new install. has anybody got and clue how to fix this??? thank you :)

Re: bootmgr missing

make sure that installation Cd/DVD is not damaged. Many times it happens due to scratches on the DVD also. Also there are many post available here regarding the same issue. You should take a look on them as well for some help.

Thanks :) this is the first time i took the disc out of it's packet and it had no scratches on the disc. It started to install the first time, but now it doesn't load. I can't take the disc out of my laptop either because it has no eject button, the eject button is a touch pad under the screen which isn't working either.

ive managed to eject my cd and i looks fine. I'm no expert on computers but i have read about this problem seaching on the internet and all i can find is to use the installation disc to repair it. but the only options i can see to do is boot from the hard drive which says "bootmgr is missing" or boot from the cd which doesn't load. hehe
