Preferred Solution: G470 - BOOTMGR is missing..urgent help needed..

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Okay, so this may not be the right place to ask, and if not, my apologies. Anyway, I was in Disk Management, and I accidentally selected my HDD as the 'Active' drive, but my OS is installed on my SSD, so I quickly right clicked on the SSD after and selected 'make Active' on that thinking that would counter that problem. Upon restarting my computer I get this pop up:

BOOTMGR is missing.

I unplug the HDD and try booting the computer again with just the SSD plugged in, but I get the same issue.

Is there any way to sort this out without having to reinstall Windows 7 yet again?

Thanks for any help!


Try Startup Repair , and if not worked, try Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times .

I recently got a new computer with windows 7 preloaded and recently have been getting pop-ups saying windows isn't genuine and my wallpaper turns black. So, annoyed as I was, I went to try an activator.
So now my computer doesn't boot, going to a screen with 'Bootmgr missing. Press ctrl-alt-delete to reboot. ' no matter how many times I reboot, I'd still get that error. I can't even go to bios.
How do I go about fixing this? I'm in need for my computer for my job. And my documents on there are precious but unbacked. Is it possible for me to retrieve them later?
Please help! It's urgent. Thanks in advance.

I am trying to fix my friends computer for him, but when i swapped his old hard drive into the new computer it kept blue screening. Well i went ahead and just threw that HD in my PC and did a full format, so its completely cleaned out. But now when i try to boot from CD to install windows. It says BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. I've been told to disable Usb input and that didnt help either. I am currently manually reseting Bios via taking the battery out for 30 minutes. Can anyone shed any light on this problem?

A:BootMGR missing, Clean Drive no OS. Urgent Please.

Have you set the PC to boot from cd in the bios?

Start the PC and hit either the delete key, F8 or F12. Depends on you computer.
Find the boot option and choose to boot from DVD/ CD before trying to boot from HDD. Then save and exit the PC should now boot from the disc. No Bootmgr suggests it's trying the hard drive first. Good luck.

Hi all,

Got a big problem which I'm sure has a simple solution. Here goes...

One of my drives contains all my games. When I've been playing a certain one (Sensible Soccer 2006) it slows down to a ridiculous unplayable speed. I tried turning off any running background processes but to no avail.

Suddenly, I couldn't access ANYTHING on the drive.

This is all happening under XP and now the OS tells me that the drive is not formatted and I should re-format it!!

HOWEVER, the drive is fine under Windows 98SE - I can access the drive no bother, but I can't run some of the games due to limitations of 98.

Please help me fix this - I have 35 Gigs of games in there and don't want to lose them and end up having to re-install the lot.

I am getting REALLY frustrated with this!

Thanks in advance

A:Solved: Urgent help needed with missing drive

Is this drive in a different hard drive than the main XP partition?

If so, this hard drive might be failing.

The bad news is that once a hard drive starts failing, it will go downhill really fast. The good news is that there are tools out there that will help you retrieve the information in that drive if that is the case, but we will need to put the information onto a new hard drive.

I compressed my entire C drive. When I rebooted I got the error "Bootmgr is compressed"

I don't have a optical drive, so I made a bootable USB drive using YUMI 0.2.3 and added the windows 7 recovery ISO. The USB drive boots and I can enter the recovery console, etc.

It couldn't auto-repair the problem so I tried enterinng the following in the command prompt code:

expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr –s –r –h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr –a +s +h +r
I guess "ren" didn't work or something, because now the error is "Bootmgr is MISSING".

Still, the recovery disk cannot auto-repair.

i tried entering the following in the command prompt (from bootable USB):
bootrec /fixboot

It said the operation has completed successfully. I took the USB drive out and rebooted. bootmgr is still missing.

I also tried:
bootrec /rebuildbcd

Total identified windows installations: 1
Add installation to boot list? yes<y>no<n>all<a>

I selected yes, it said "The requested system device cannot be found".
On that note, I am stuck. How can I restore bootmgr?

I just got a computer for free, a Dell Studio 1555. When I got it, it would try to boot, then come to a screen that said that bootmgr.exe was missing. Sometimes I got a message that said something like mpio.sys was corrupted or missing. I have a Win 7 disk, so I put it in and tried to repair the installation. Each time I ran it, it said that the repair had failed. I tried to reinstall windows 7, and It made it to the first restart in the process. It showed the "Starting Windows" screen, but the colors of the windows logo never appeared, then I got the missing bootmgr screen. I decided to install Ubuntu and see if that worked, and it did (I installed it alongside the Windows installation). It was Ubuntu 10.04. I thought, "OK, so i'll just use this as a Linux machine"...and I decided to go back and reinstall so that I could use the entire hard drive. It never worked correctly again. Each subsequent time that I installed Ubuntu, I was told something along the lines of "Gnome Power Manager did not install correctly" and got a slow and choppy Ubuntu installation. Tried to install 11.10, and it failed completely. I opened the Ubuntu live from my usb drive, and opened the disk utility. I now cannot format, reformat, partition, or delete partitions on the drive. Is all of this just a case of a hard drive on its last legs, or is there something else going on here?
Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Bootmgr.exe missing... mpio.sys missing or corrupted. Unable to boot

You should try and use the bootable Partition Wizard CD. It should show you something similar to the Windows Disk Management tool. If it works, you should be able to see all partitions, shrink them, deete them, extend them, format them etc.
Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD

If you haven't already, also try running a Startup Repair using the following tutorial.
Startup Repair

If you can't format anything, your last shot may be using Darik's Boot And Nuke (DBAN). This can be put on a USB which when booted, completely wipes every hard drive recognised. So be sure to remove any other hard disk device or drive.

Hello mybigbowls Welcome to the Seven Forums!

If the family XP system has a cd writer or dvd burner installed for an optical drive you can download a cd image for the Windows 7 repair tools and burn it to a blank cd made bootable. The repair tools iso image is provided over at the Neosmart Technologies site.

For a free orogram to burh the repair iso to disk or write to a usb flash drive made bootable I am presently taking a look at another free program for this called Passcape mentioned at Passcape ISO Burner to Create Bootable Disc and Bootable USB || Free Software

Hi there,
I have an ACER Aspire 7720G Intel Core Duo processor T5750, 3GB DDR, 250GB HDD, up to 1535 mb NVIDIA Geforce 9300M Graphics, running Windows Vista Home Premium.
Firstly I had the error message, 'system volume on disk is corrupt', I downloaded the Vista Recovery CD, and used chkdsk c: /f/r and it seemed to repair it - however before I could check whether it had in fact repaired anything - the following error message appeared on bootup - 'BOOTMGR is missing ... I used the Vista Recovery and did 'bootrec /fixboot' at the command prompt. It then told me that it had been repaired successfully. However on next boot up, the error message BOOTMGR is missing ...' was still there. Since then, I have tried to use the Vista Recovery CD and it gets as far as Windows is loading files, with the progress bar all the way across and stops or it gets stuck at 'Press any key to boot from CD or DVD' ...
Any help re this will be gratefully received.

A:BOOTMGR is missing ...

It is likely that you need a new hard drive. Save all your files if you have any that you want to save. It will be too late soon if not too late already.

RAM could also be defective since that can mimic nearly ANY ERROR.

MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
Roadkil's RAM Test
Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)

If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

If you are running Vista, tap F8 on boot and choose the memory diagnostic, or if you can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:


Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.

A:Bootmgr is missing

Hello JB, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you do not have anything on the hard drive that you want to keep, then you could try this to see if you may be able to install Windows 7 afterwards. Be sure to see links in list below.Open a command prompt at boot. (Option One)
Run the clean (not clean all) command on the hard drive to wipe it clean.
Create a new primary partition on the hard drive. (Option Two)
Hope this helps for now,

My son's Gateway laptop using Vista Home Premium had a malware infection. I decided not to deal with it and sent him to Geek Squad with it. Geek Squad said to son, "You can do this yourself since you have Recovery CD's and save yourself $200.00." We purchased the Recovery CD's from Geek Squad when we bought the computer. Son comes home and tries to run the (2)Recovery CD's and the 2nd CD is blank....I didn't believe him at first but he was right. Took the PC back to Geek Squad, they directed us to Gateway Support to get new System and Recovery CD's. The Gateway CD's arrived today and I follow the instruction provided, as follows:

1.) Insert the disk labeled System Disc.
2.) Reboot the computer and press F10 when the splash screen first appears.
3.) Select either CDROM or DVD as your boot device

I have tried several times and "BOOTMGR is missing, Press ctrl+alt+delete to restart" keeps happening.

Checked the BIOS to be sure "Boot from CD/DVD" was first and it is.

Any guidance, input or direction would be greatly appreciated. I am not desperate since we have a desktop available.

Apologies if this has been asked/answered before, but a quick search didn't really seem to solve my specific problem. Anyway, about 2-3 weeks ago, I got a new Asus laptop with Vista installed on it. Everything was going fine until this morning when I turned it on only to get a black screen saying 'BOOTMGR is missing, press alt+ctl+del to restart.' Having pressed alt+ctl+del numerous times, only to be returned to the same screen, I went online on another computer to try to find a solution. However, most sites, such as this one, say that you need your Vista installation CD to fix the problem. Given that my computer came with Vista already on it, I don't have the installation CD, so seem to be fairly stuck, and so I turn to this forum. Does anyone have any idea how I could fix this, bearing in mind that my computer capabilities aren't the best? Or does it look like I'll have to be making a trip to the nearest computer guy to get it fixed?

Hey guys turned my laptop on today and on boot it take me to a black screen where it says "BOOTMGR is missing press ctrl alt del to restart" i have read many things online on how to fix them but to no joy,so thought what better site to go on than an actual windows 7 forum.

Anyways i have the windows 7 restore disk and changed my boot sequence to boot from cd,i insert the W7 restore cd and it loads up. I then click on repair and it takes me to the "System Recovery Options" section and tells me to choose my Operating system.... Seems pretty simple but my os is not listed from this point i have no clue why it is not listed as i have windows 7 home premium installed and have no clue what to do from here. I must admit i am not the biggest computer expert but have some basic knowledge so need some help from somebody who has more knowledge and experience than me.

My laptop is Toshiba satelite l450d if that helps any 1

A) Press and tap the F8 key about every second until you see the screen shot below. (Same as I posted above. Hopalong)
NOTE: If the Windows startup logo appears, you will need to repeat steps 1 and 3 again.

2) This is where you want to end up after clicking Startup Repair.

Hi guys,
i'm a bit desperate here! I partitioned my C drive so that I could install windows 7 (which i did and was running fine). i then tried to delete the partition on which vista was still installed (my new partition H drive had 7 installed on it) I was googling stuff online and read that the Boot files had to be copied to the H drive from C drive. I did that and also changed the H drive to Active. I had to restart my computer and upon doing so, i got the error bootmgr missin press ctrl+alt+del to restart. i do that and i get the same error. I don't even know how i can access either operating system since that error keeps coming up everytime my computer is started. what do i do to get windows up and running again. and i don't have any installation cd of either win 7 or vista (i got a link to download win 7 and vista was pre-installed). any suggestions would be great! thanks

A:HELP - bootmgr missing

If you moved your boot files correctly, there will be no problems.

Boot to bios and change the first boot device to be your drive H:

Reboot into Win7.

But for some reason, I get the feeling it is not going to be that simple for you. When you speak of "drives," do you really mean you have one drive and many partitions on them instead? Otherwise setting anything active would not have been necessary in most cases.

Here's a definite thing you can do failing that.

If you own a license key to Windows 7 and have paid for it (don't do this otherwise or the Gremlins will pop out of the software), then I suggest that you can find a copy of the RTM build 7600 online and download it. Burn .iso to DVD. Place DVD in affected machine and boot to it.

Run a startup repair.

Startup Repair

If you can somehow prove to me you legally own a copy of Windows 7, I can possibly guide you on where to obtain another copy.

If you can't prove it to me, running startup repair from the RC version of Win 7 DVD has an excellent chance of working as well. You do not need a key for me to tell you where to download this. It is free to the public.

OK so I get this BOOTMGR missing message at startup and with some Googling I found it to be a common issue. So I tried the solution suggested by a ton of differnt sites - startup with the Vista DVD and choose the Repair option. The problem is that at the next step, Windows Vista doesn't show up as an OS in the System Recovery Options window! It's just blank so obviously when I pick "Startup Repair" nothing happens. It also says "If you don't see your OS, click on Load Drivers to load drivers for your hard drive." But if I do this I have no idea where to look and what to look for! Any pointers on where I should go next would be much appreciated.

Step 2 - I completely formatted the drive via "format c:" in command prompt. At this point, there is no OS, or anything on the disk.
Step 3 - Set BIOS to boot from CD/DVD
Step 4 - Insert Windows 7 disc into drive
Step 5 - Restart computer

Now this is where I have my issues. In BIOS I have it set to boot from CD/DVD first, and do not have boot to hard drive selected at all.

The computer will load, flash the mobo's splash screen, then I get "Booting from CD/DVD: _"

After a few seconds there it tells me "BOOTMGR is missing, Press ctlr+alt+del to restart"

I restart, and no matter what I do, I have the same error.

Now please, do not tell me to put in the windows 7 disc, boot to it, select keyboard reason etc... I can not get to any windows screen, or get the CD to boot, period.

Does anyone know what I can do to fix this issue?

A:BOOTMGR is Missing

Hi and welcome,

What is he source of your Windows 7 installation DVD?

Step 2 - I completely formatted the drive via "format c:" in command prompt. At this point, there is no OS, or anything on the disk.

I'm a bit confused about Step 2 - how did you format the C: when you didn't have an installed OS? Once we can get you to boot to an installation DVD properly, we can show you how to use DISKPART and the CLEAN command to do that properly.

well i had issues with sound skipping and got fed up and installed windows on another hard drive witch seems to have solved the issue however now when i boot the pc it says bootmgr missing press ctrl alt delete. ive checked my bios and the bios is still telling the pc to boot the hard drive with windows on it but it says bootmgr missing. now the second part to this if i press escape while booting and manually tell it to boot off the drive with windows on it it boots fine. why wont it boot on its own now?

Someone built a computer for my girlfriends dad and he was installing windows 7 on it and from what i'm told it just comes up with "BOOTMGR is missing", i already tried getting them to disconnect the hard drive and reconnect it and also try a different operating disk to see if it is the software. I was not told the spec of the PC because it is unknown to him.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hi, this did occur for me?too some week ago.
You need to have bios to boot from your cd rom player.
Have the windows 7 disk in. Reboot, start form the disk, wait for it to load windows files, then choose your langue, then klick repair. it will do a quick scan and say that it found errors in the start up sequence. click repair. It will work for a while and then reboot. Do not boot from the disk this time to see if it works. hopefully it does the trick for you. If not (like in my case), then you will have to put in the disc again and let the comp boot from it and load the files again. then choose the CMD and type in:
bootrec.exe /fixboot

that did the trick for me.

Though I'm not some kind of pro i would await someone elses response too to confirm my methods.But as said this has happened twice for me worked both.

Regards Philip

2 weeks ago I see my computer screen is completely blank. ctrl/alt/delete or any other button push doesn't do anything. So I restart my computer. Then I get the "Bootmgr is missing" screen; over and over and over again. So I put my Vista disk in the drive and restart, but Vista boots up just fine. It works till 2 days ago when I find the same blank screen. So I put the Vista disk back in and boot from the disk and I get a blue screen. I put both 64 bit and 32 bit Vista disks into each of my DVD drives and both give me a blue screen.

My friend says it could be a virus. He suggests I get a hard drive, disconnect all hard drives but the new one, and install Vista. I try this and still get the blue screen. So I try replacing all my data cables to the hard drives and DVD drives with no success. So I re-connect the old hard drive and now Vista loads and has been working ever since. So I do a full scan with Avast and it doesn't find anything. There were 3 files it couldn't scan though. This is what it listed:


I am worried that this problem will come back again. Does anybody have any ideas what the problem is? Thanks for any help!

I have a very big problem with my reinstall of W7 Pro. I have now lost the bootmgr and am not able to "see" my SSD. Ouch! I searched the forum for my error: 0x800704f and couldn't find it nor could I get to see my SSD and am therefore not able to use the tutorial to "get it back." Well, I am at a loss at this point. I was originally trying a fresh install of Win7 pro. But, just prior, I got an error box that the Catalyst Control Center was not working properly(or something like that). But, when after all my efforts seemed to take me further down the rabbit hole. I concluded that I must post this thread! Please help. I built it myself and know just enough to make me dangerous!

After a System initiated restart following a System detected error the System Displayed BootMgr is Missing press CTRL Alt Delete to restart

However while this booted the system it took an in ordinary time to Boot

Prior to my last Restart I had run "PC SCAN and Repair by Reimage" a tool I have been using for the last several months to optimise my system, NOT This Time however.

I've surfed the WEB for various options but I am in doubt as to the action required ot I should say scared to use them without supervision.

A:bootmgr is missing

Try downloading this Recover Consol ISO and extract it and copy the content to the pen drive and boot from it on the Netbook. Choose the installation and input the admin password, if there isn't one just hit enter. at the prompt type fixboot and hit enter. Then type fixmbr and hit enter. Exit out of the recover console and try booting to windows.

Also here is some useful information on your Advent 4490 Netbook

I have an Asus Intel (R) Core (TM)2 Duo CPU T6500 @2.10GHZ LAPTOP. I am a basic computer user and simply tried to upgrade to Windows 7 because when I purchased the computer in August it came with a free upgrade.

I performed the upgrade check and folllowed the Windows 7 sugestions. I hit the upgrade button and 2.5 hours later things were going fine. The last step was approx 50% finished (Trasferring files, drives, etc.)

The system retstarted automatically and I received the Bootmgr is missing. I went on the forum and found a sugestion to Boot from the DVD. I tried this and it worked. System rebboted fine. Got a message to repair or revover. I repaired the start up. That worked and now the computer starts from its own hard drive.

After startup, "starting windows", I see wa window that says Setup is starting services and then I get a window box that says, "Th computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows Installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.

When I hit ok, the computer restarts and I eventually circle back to this screen.

Do I need to initiate something to restart the installation? Please help!

A:Bootmgr is missing

You can boot into the Win7 DVD Repair console and see if it finds an installation to repair, then run Startup Repair repeatedly to try to start it up.

What you have is probably another failed in-place Upgrade. This is why every tech enthusiast only does clean installs, preferably from booting the DVD to use Custom Advanced drive tools to format before install.

If you have files that were'nt backed up, Asus provides the tech suppport for the Win7 Upgrade kit and might be able to help you roll it back if it is just an incomplete installation. Otherwise you can only try to start it up using Repair.

The good news is that you can now move on to the much superior clean install, booting from the DVD and formatting the drive. The installer is nearly driver complete, with newer drivers arriving in Windows Updates. There should be a drivers/apps disk included in your Upgrade Kit to find any drivers which are missing in Device Manager, or favorite apps on your model. Other drivers/apps can be found on the Support Downloads page for your model on the manufacturer's website.

Adobe reader/flash and Java runtime/free Ofc suite are on their sites. You'll need to find your other program disks/installers.

having been trying to reboot my advent netboot via usb pendrive unsuccessfully after receiving black screen with bootmgr is missing press ctrl alt delete.

does anyone know if you can reboot a netbook by plugging it into a pc via usb cable. (my netbook has no cd/dvd drive).

A:bootmgr is missing

If you plug a USB cable into two machines, you might just end up exchanging power between the two with possibly nasty results for both USB ports. Did Advent not supply any form of recovery option for this eventuality? Which model is your netbook?
