"Bootmgr is missing" error upon startup, caused by human error

Q: "Bootmgr is missing" error upon startup, caused by human error

Today I got my new laptop and decided to dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 on it. After several hours of partitioning and researching, I ran into many issues. Eventually I decided to boot Ubuntu from a USB drive, open up Gparted, and delete any and all Linux partitions while expanding the size of the Windows partition back to normal.

Unfortunately, in the process, I must have made an error, because now upon startup I get the "bootmgr is missing" error. I don't have a recovery CD nor does my laptop have a CD drive, so that's out of the question, but I know for a fact my Hard Drive has a recovery partition on it. I want to restore my computer back to normal, keeping my old files if necessary. However, since I just got the computer today, I clearly don't have anything on there I can't afford to lose, so if I must do a factory reset I will.

Preferred Solution: "Bootmgr is missing" error upon startup, caused by human error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A:"Bootmgr is missing" startup error

Hello there! AhellHound Welcome to the Seven Forums!

One thing I could say here is that if push comes to shove you could perform a repair install of the present Windows installation in order to repair the boot sector. Repair Install

The problem may not be as easily solved however if it is found that the boot sector ends up seeing a "boot sector unwritable" type error. The first thing you may have missed when trying the MS instructions however is a possible need to run the Startup repair tool a few more times to insure it finishes any repair it could make. IF and I say if the drive is seeing bad sectors at the front end you may be in for a disappointment however.

As of late for a friend on an older build with a drive now 6-7yrs. old in fact while it can still be seen at times with brand new drives as well as ones worn from use the Disk Check tool was run while booted live from the previous version's Vista dvd to run the "chkdsk c: /f" command at the command prompt option when suddenly seeing that type of error and Windows constantly failing to boot even after the last known to work had been used the last time the desktop was seen. A new drive had to be ordered.

That's the worst possible end. You may want to run a hard drive diagnostics tools to either confirm or be able to rule the drive out as the problem before anything else at this point. If the drive is found to good and troublefree the rest would be software/OS related which is better.

Hi,

I just put together a brand new haswell gaming rig and installed windows 7.
Long story short, I copied the contents of my windows 7 installation disc into an internal SATA drive (1600BEVT-22ZCT0) and installed windows onto another internal SATA drive (ST3160215AS).
My problem is that in order to access the windows installation in ST3160215AS I have to boot into 1600BEVT-22ZCT0 and then select Windows 7.
If I boot directly into ST3160215AS then I get the error message "BOOTMGR is missing".
How can I fix this and boot directly into the drive windows is installed in (ST3160215AS)?

I've tried the commands bootrec /rebuildbcd, bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot but they keep using the MBR stored in 1600BEVT-22ZCT0 without ever creating an MBR on the ST3160215AS drive.
I don't have an optical drive on the rig and the only way I can transfer information to and from the rig is by removing the 1600BEVT-22ZCT0 internal drive and connecting it to my laptop.

Sorry for the long post.
Thanks in advance for helping

I recently decided to move a hard drive I've had in an external enclosure to inside my case. After I did this I got a bootmgr is missing error on startup.

Things that may be useful to know:

I have 3 hard drives (this new one being the third), one 60gb for my operating system, one 160gb for other junk, and now this 1tb one I've just put in.

My 60gb operating system drive is connected using an IDE cable, the other two using SATA cables.

I've checked all plugs and connectors in the case.

I've checked the boot order in the BIOS, sometimes the 60gb drive doesn't even show up, sometimes it does.
My boot order is CDROM, then HDD(60gb one obviously).
So startup will go like this:
Bootmgr is missing, go into BIOS, check boot order, HDD not showing up, restart, Bootmgr is missing, go into BIOS, HDD is there, exit and startup ok. except sometimes I have to restart it a few times before it'll show up.

Any help would be much appreciated.

If I have posted this in the wrong thread, then let me know which would be the best thread to post in and Ill move it there.

Update: Just crashed with a blue screen, it restarted itself but now I'm getting "a disk read error occurred" message. I restarted it and I got "Bootmgr is missing" again.

I just upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Win7 professional x64 hoping to fix the above mentioned problem. After a complete re-install Im getting the same errors.

Im not sure of the proper terminology here, but during startup the computer does a scan of all hardware and "Volume 0" has a "failed" message.

The odd thing is that sometimes after a few restarts and pointless boot menu visits the computer starts up fine.

I tried windows repair feature by booting from the disk, but when I get to the window where i select the operating system to repair, its empty. Drive C, where the operating system is, is not showing.

I have a feeling that the hard drive itself has gone bad and is very unstable. Please let me know if I'm missing something or we just need to get a new HD.

Thank you

What type of hdd do you have. For example if you have a Seagate drive, there is software you can run to do a diagonostic on the hdd before the operating system boots.
This would be a good idea, especially if you were having same issues when Vista Home Premium was installed first.

Do you have more than one hdd installed. If yes, make sure in BIOS settings, the proper drive is selected for First Boot. And better yet make sure its the only drive attached when booting.

First, let me give you a little background. I purchased this computer (a Lenovo Y-580) about two weeks ago, and have been using it for about a week. When I first got it, the hard drive it came with wouldn't boot so I put in another one I had left over (I upgraded my hard drive a while ago). Little did I know, was that that I forgot to erase that hard drive cleanly, so when Windows 7 installed, it resulted in both an MBR partition table and a GPT partition table at the same time. I discovered this when I went to install Ubuntu (with the cinnamon UI) on the secondary drive that came with my computer (a 16 GB SSD), and I noticed that the partition map for the drive that I wasn't installing on looked wrong, so I put it on my to-do list to look at later. I booted into Ubuntu and pulled up Testdisk and Gparted. Gparted was acting strange, asking me if the GPT table was correct (it wasn't), and I clicked no since I was positive it was MBR and Gparted wouldn't display any partitions. I went in Testdisk and set the type to Intel/PC. I then scanned for partitions, found one, and wrote the MBR. Of course this didn't do anything, because for some reason the GPT table was not being overwritten at all. I then resorted to erasing the entire MBR and making a new one. I figured that I could always use bootrec to fix it. Nope... After 8 hours of on and off trying to fix this problem, it still gives the same error. I've tried bootrec, bootsect, and various other commands, in addition to Startup... Read more

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals to install Win7 first. Afterwards you can unplug the Win7 HD to install Linux, so that you will boot your choice of HD's via the BIOS which avoid problems.

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. Next if an EFI BIOS, enable Legacy BIOS, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt. We are creating the partition here to mark it Active which overcomes certain install failures.

Hey all. I'm attempting to fix the computer of someone I work with. It's an HP Compaq 8000 Elite running Windows 7 Professional.

According to him, 3 updates were recently installed. After the updates completed, the computer rebooted, then the "BOOTMGR is missing" error message came up.

I searched the web for solutions to that particular issue, and the main consensus seems to be to run a repair from the Windows 7 installation disc. I tried that, but when the recovery manager searched for installed operating systems, it found nothing.

I went to the command prompt in the recovery manager and typed "C:" to try and determine if anything was installed. The C: drive was labeled "OS", but there didn't appear to be anything on it other than a TEMP folder.

Then I ran Ubuntu via flash drive, which allowed me to access the corrupt hard drive. However, I only saw that TEMP folder, which contained text documents.

Now I have the corrupt hard drive plugged into my personal desktop, as a final attempt at retrieving any files. When I navigate to My Computer to see the connected drives, I now see:Local Disk (C:) - My main hard drive

Okay, I have an ATI Radeon 8500 on my Windows XP system, and one day, after my dad had used the computer, the 3D video driver stoppeed working. He can't recall doing anything. So it goes. I think "whatever", downloaded the latest Catalyst drivers, and try to install it, only to get the message "INF Error, Video Driver Not Found" and then "Try to set up your adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup". I tried googling for info (apparently it's a common-ish issue), but I never found anything that worked. I tried uninstalling anything ATI and then installing, to no avail. I tried uninstalling the error-listed VGA adapter from the Device Manager and then running install which didn't work.

I wanted to upgrade my laptop from Vista Basic to Vista home Premium so my brother uploaded it my laptop. He got it working for a minute but then there was an error on a black screen that said " BOOTMGR is compressed" and Ctrl +alt+ delete to restart--- every time I try it, it turns off and goes back to that same message.

From what I've read, I'm guessing I over stored memory on my laptop-- it said "2038 MB capacity"-- which I originally thought was plenty, but I had 2048 MB on my laptop.

I don't want to lose any of my personal documents but I do want to keep Vista. Do I have to go back to Vista Basic? I got my Dell through the mail and it came with the original OS already installed on it.

I would also like to know the different kind of memory storage systems in my laptop just for my understanding.

Please let me know what I should do to get my laptop working again as concise and plainly as possible; I need my laptop for school.

Also is it possible to just buy an extra GB of memory and add it to my laptop to solve the problem, or is it too late?

I have a 2GB Dell Vostro 1400. Let me know if you need anymore information.

Hey. I receieved a Rootkit virus last night alongside "Windows 7 Recovery" and it emerged into something nasty today. I followed the fairly routine steps to remove it but realised I was still being redirected.
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate and it was pre-installed so I don't have the disk.

Initially I checked my internet/browser wasn't using a proxy
Fixed my Windows host file to read only "127.0" etc.
Scanned with RKill and it "terminated" the rootkit
Used Unhide to recover hidden files on the Desktop

I was still getting redirected from Google so I:
Then checked Unhack Me... found nothing.
Continually cleared all Cookies
Tried to run TDSKILLER... it did nothing but Bluescreen me. I then used GMER as an alternative and it's came up with scan results, but nothing in red.
Ran Combofix - nothing
Ran a full scan on MBAM - nothing found
Ran a full scan on Spybot - nothing found
Ran a full scan on Pandascan - nothing found
Ran a full scan on CCleaner (cleaning EVERYTHING possible)
Ran a full scan on Spyware Doctor - nothing found
Installed Spyware Blaster
Ran Killbox - nothing found
Checked that nothing fishy was running on Security Task Manager
Checked my Windows startup programs, which were almost all Windows and NVIDIA

I then noticed a file jlvmyfor.exe in Program Files, disguised as winamp, which completely ruined the running of any process - including explorer.exe when I restarted after a scan.
Now I have an error 0x0000... Read more

Hello All,

I am experiencing a very debilitating issue with my laptop. The error indicated on the title of this thread appears every time I try to open multiple programs on my machine; the error is present in at least the following applications: Windows explorer, HP SimplePass, HP CSI Shell, HP Support Assistant, HP Installer, Adobe Acrobat X Pro, Synaptics TouchPad V7.5... and perhaps more.

I include with this message a zip file with some recent logs (CBS. log, Errors Event Viewer, Last Scan.txt, Malware log.txt, Check Disk Event Viewer log) for your review so that both of us can save some valuable time.

Note: I am not by any means an expert on either computer software or hardware so, I would really appreciate if you help me out to sort this issue having that in mind.

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Error message: "A problem caused the program to stop working..."

Hi,

Can you remember when this problem started to happen, if so had you made any changes to the computer such as software installations?

If so, you can try a system restore or use a backup if you have one to roll the os back to a time when all was working well and see if this solves your problem

I can almost guarantee that this is either a damaged or corrupt shell or a conflict with some software, as the fact that you can load the operating system up and get past post shows that it's not hardware related in anyway

Thank you

Some of sites recommended doing a restore back to when your computer was not having this problem.
I am not an export in solving your error problems but someone will be along to help out in the meantime look under the hood and make sure everything is clean and seated properly.
Might even try a restore also.

If this started when you installed McAfee, try temperately disabling it. Double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center \ Click Advanced \ Click Configure \ Click Computer & Files.

Do you have a recovery restore install disc or partition?
You can try doing a repair or system file check...
Scan For Missing/Corrupt System Files...

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC)
Itscans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer...
To Do This:
Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.
Notes....
I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

Greetings,

I realize that I posted this thread previously, but I see that I had erroneously created it in the inappropriate forum (Windows Vista). However, the user "Macboatmaster" was kind and patient enough to provide me with assistance there, though I am still waiting on his following procedures.

In the meantime, as this is the Windows XP forum (my operating system is Windows XP), I wanted to formally post my dilemma here as well, as I thought that I may acquire more feedback. Here is the problem that I am facing, along with what Macboatmaster already suggested:

-I recently encountered some trouble on my pc (a BENQ) with respect to starting it up. During a recent system restore, a power failure occurred, and ever since I attempted to boot the computer, I receive the following error just before the desktop appears:

"Explorer.EXE - Unable To Locate Component: This application has failed to start because WININET.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem."

This error prevents me from accessing anything on my desktop (i.e. task bar, icons, etc.) - only the desktop background appears, and all that I have access to is the Task Manager (Control+Alt+Delete). Control+Escape does not allow me to have access to the Start menu. I receive the same error just before I get into the cmd prompt, but it appears that I am still able to use it.

Hello There,

Have you gone into the Device Manager and looked to see if there are any yellow or red marks by any of your devices that might indicate an error in the device driver?????

My expeience with Omega drivers is that they should not cause any trouble and in fact are usually more stable than the Standard drivers. Just my experience, some others on here may have had a different experience so we will wait to hear from them.

Hi;
Had a sudden inability to go much further than a third or forth-level download on ANY given webpage and then PC would seize-up, requiring "cont+alt+del" in order to get freed-up. Thought perhaps I picked-up a bug of some sort during a recent google search, and went immediately to Panda and Trendmicro to perform both virus as well as malware scans. While the Panda scan was loading-up, I received the following error message....

... " DoPatch....dll reports error....Error "C:\WINNT\patch.utp"....unreadable or not a patch file..."

Was able to complete both scans. Nothing found other than tracking cookies.

I then did a file serch for the above and located it. It was installed TODAY apparently, and not by me, within minutes of the problem starting.

I'm guessing someone/thing slipped this patch into my WINNT file or modified it while I was doing the google search, so I have included a HJT scan below.

Hope this all makes sense and ties-out to something. Any help would be genuinely appreciated-

Make sure Win7 HD is set first HD to boot in BIOS setup, Mark Active Win7 or it's 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred), run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Win7 starts on its own.

Then use this method to Dual boot Ubuntu-Win7 which may help avoid GRUB irreparably corrupting Win7 when it's on the same HD.

Safest is to install each to separate HD's booted only via BIOS boot order or one-time BIOS Boot Menu.
