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.

Bluetooth not working after installing Windows 10 on G470

A:G470 - Bluetooth not working after installing Windows 10 on G470

Hi ashu2000 , 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Checking on the Lenovo supported systems list for Windows 10 Upgrade ,  "not listed, it hasn?t been tested for Windows 10 upgrade and is not supported. " for the G570 .
Same reasons why on the support site , drivers for windows 10 is not available. 
There are claims that it works ok but some have reported devices and apps not working after the upgrade. 
You may check related threads here . 
Would there be any yellow or black down arrow marks on the device manager . 
If that is the case , then you may want to try checking the hardware ID to download specific driver directly from the manufacturer if the Windows 8.1 version driver would not help.
Example for Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Driver or use windows updates to install appropriate drivers
On device manager , you may also use built in drivers in Windows 10  doing upgrade drivers and, browse on this pc , let me pick option, and choose recommended ones on the list .  
Hope this helps.

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.

I suspect you were dual booting and deleted off the older partition. when win 7 installs with an older system it puts a hidden boot folder containing win 7 boot files. If that is the case do you have a backup you can restore from? how about a win 7 dvd to do a repair install?

I woke up to BOOTMGR is missing press ctrl alt del. When I reboot it comes immediately back to BOOTMGR is missing, it does not offer me any startup options, I can't choose a boot to Linux which is one of my startup options, I can't even get it to start to a disk in my DVD player. I always thought that even without a hard drive, the computer would be able to get into BIOS, but that option isn't there either, the Lenovo logo screen comes up followed by the BOOTMGR error screen.

How To Fix



You wouldn't get any massage if your bios wasn't running.
Bootmanager is your startup.
I had that once with a dual boot start up option. Double set like XP or W 7
If you deleted or disabled one of the options it ran into bootmanager missing.
Typical with easy BCD program.
Did you remove every other startup item like USB devices?

You can produce a repair disc on another PC

I woke up a few days ago to find my computer wouldn't turn on. To diagnose the problem I removed the motherboard from the chassis. I identfied the problem as a dead PSU (don't trust Hiper... I have now known several of these to break after a year).

Any way, I order a new PSU reassembled the computer and fired it up. After the initial BIOS post I got the error message 'BOOTMGR missing. Press ctrl+alt+del to restart'. Now I am guessing this is because I put the SATA cables from the HDD to different slots on the motherboard from which they originally came. I can access either my windows installs by loading the boot menu and selecting the HDD with my 7 install on so its not the end of the world. But my question is this: is there a quick fix to this (edit boot.ini?) or do I have to trial and error the correct SATA config?

I should mention I have 2 HDDs each with 2 partitions - 1 system partition and 1 storage partition on each. I have XP and 7 on the system partitions. (due to the crappy XP setup the storage partition on the XP disk comes at the start of the disk and the system partition at the end meaning that boot.ini and ntdfr are in the root of the storage not the system partition).

Would appreciate any help that people can offer on this!!

NOTE: sorry for posting twice, this is not spam I got the error message wrong. It is BOOTMGR that is missing not NTLDR.

Earlier this evening I installed 64Bit Window7 Professional on a new formatted hard drive. I already had a copy of 32 Bit Vista Home Premium Edition SP2 running on the pc on another hard drive. After updating Windows 7 from the Windows Update site I was told to restart the pc to complete the installation of the updates. The BIOS now hangs up at the BIOS splash screen and then I get the message " BIOSMGR not found press CTR+ALT+DEL to restart" . I follow these instructions and the same happens again. Can anyone advise how to solve this problem?

A:BootMgr is missing

He can't boot in to Disk Management to post it. As computer starts up, go into BIOS by tapping delete, F1 or F2 repeatedly. See which HDD is set to boot.

Did it ever actually start up to a dual boot menu after install? Did you unplug the Vista drive to install 7 and then replug it? If so, try to boot from the Win7 disk and run startup repair. If it offers it to you when you select "Repair my Computer" it may not work the first time, so boot back in after it fals and select it from Repair Menu to run.

If that fails, boot back into Repair Console>Command Line and run "bootrec.exe /fixboot" and "bootrec.exe /fixmbr" to fix the boot manager.

If these fail, then post back here what you found.

After having to reinstal win 8 due to stupidity on my part I am now getting the bootmgr missing.

I have tried doing what it says in the MS page to rebuild it, but it still says it's missing.

Note Use the Bootrec.exe tool to troubleshoot "Bootmgr Is Missing" issue. If rebuilding the BCD does not resolve the startup issue, you can export and delete the BCD, and then run this option again. By doing this, you make sure that the BCD is completely rebuilt.

To do this, type the following commands at the Windows RE command prompt:
bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backupc:cd bootattrib bcd -s -h -rren c:\boot\bcd bcd.oldbootrec /RebuildBcd
I have followed this to the letter, but it still says bootmgr missing on startup.

Under command prompt C:\Boot I now have

20,480 BCD
77,824 bcd.old

(along, of course, with a load of other stuff)

So it is there

I have 3 discs

vol 1 is d: and is for data (d:data)
vol 2 is c: and is for software, (this contains the windows)
vol 3 is f: and is just a data backup from d: (f: data backup)

all the commands run under bootrec are successful and it finds the windows installation under c:

Any other ideas?

My dm4 hdd crashed so I replaced it. I just received new recovery disks from HP. The first load seemed to work fine....sort of. All three recovery disks seem to load. After that the computer said to insert any additional driver and application disks. One came with the set so I did.  The computer sat there all day and didn't move. The mouse pad was dead so I had to pull the plug and battery and attached a mouse and restarted it. The computer starts to load the Windows files then goes to "bootmgr missing". I've tried to reload everything 7-8 times. I keep ending up at the bootmgr missing screen. The start up test and hdd test say everything is fine...........I've been at this for three days. I give up and can't seem to find a fix. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I can't figure this one out:

I tried to install a new version of Windows 7 doing a full format. After going through 99% of the installation it failed.

Now I have a "BOOTMGR is missing" error at start up.

I have tried the following so far:

1) Boot from Windows DVD but I get the same error message
2) I swapped the HD with another I had using a version of XP. When I tried to change the boot order in setup it wouldn't save the changes. In order for me to exit the setup the CD/DVD drive had to be the primary drive.

I'm lost at this point any suggestions would be much appreciated.

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.

Hello everyone. For the first time in my life, I decided to try to put my own computer together. So I bought all the parts, went back to my house, and "assembled" all the parts together. Once that was done, I plugged in the monitor and such, and put in Windows 7 CD. I did the proccess, but half way through downloading, it turned off. I turned it back on and it said "BOOTMGR missing. PRess control, alt, delete to restart".

I looked up what to do on the internet, but I'm having a problem. They say to go back to the orignal screen where you can choose your langauge and things, but I don't know how to get there, any time i turn on the computer with or without the disk, it says the same thing. I read it's probably a software thing, but it could possibly be a hardware problem. I might have assembled something wrong, I'm not to sure.

Can someone help me out please? Should I give specifics on what I am using as my stuff? I'm still new, so thanks for any help.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to put this, I'm still new to the forum.

I am attempting to fix the BootMGR is missing, but have ran every bootrec.exe /command they offer, plus the startup repair gives me the error that it cannot be repaired automatically.

Any suggestions?

A:Bootmgr is missing.


I assume you have one drive and one operating system. Don't know what caused your problem, but if you are not too curious and just want to get back and running, a repair install could be the answer.

Repair Install For Vista

This should replace all the Vista files , without damaging your own programs and settings. You need the proper MS install dvd to do it.

Hope it helps

I have an hp touchsmart 600 with windows 7 home premium and when I try and turn it on, it says bootmgr is missing. I have tried restoring it with this method: Bootmgr is missing - Fix
but when I get to the last step, it says Windows Installations Found: 0.
I have also tried sfc /scannow and chkdsk. I could reinstall but as a last resort. I would rather solve this.

A:Bootmgr is missing

bootrec/fixboot was succesfull?
bootrec/fixmbr as well?

Try startup repair again. After it finishes click "view diagnostic and repair details" You see kind of logfile. Status 0x0 means success... I'm not interested in that. Any other status code? Which one in which step?

What picture did you see just before clicking startup repair?

So did it detect your win7 installation? If so which drive letter did it show?

Help please!!!!!!!!!

My PC has two hard drives. Windows gave me the option on boot up of proceeding with either Windows XP or Windows Vista home basic which worked fine. I then installed Vista Ultimate 32 bit over the XP installation and again all seemed ok. However, the other morning I switched on the pc and got the dreaded Bootmgr is missing message.

I have tried fixing using the vista disc but when it says select the OS to repair nothing is showing. If i click next and then choose the repair option it goes through the process and then you reboot but the problem still remains. I have also tried the command prompt options but they make no difference either. The Bios recognises both my hard drives are there ok, what can I do next somebody please help.

Cheers Jay

A:BootMGR is missing help

This means it is attempting to boot the hard drive and not the stick. If you're sure you've selected the stick to boot but getting this result, I would write it again.

After several days of my computer freezing, one morning I wake up to find that when I turn on my computer, it won't boot up. I've googles for a working solution but none of them seem to work. My operating system is Windows 7 and i bought it that way black Friday at best buy. What I have tried so far was downloading a W7 repair cd and tried to auto repair which ended in offline error, as well I tried the command prompt but it didn't work with fix boot, fixmbr, etc. It would give me a message along the lines that there is no command or it won't work. I can't get into safe mode nor can I boot up, my computer randomly freezes. I do not care if I can fix this and lose all of my information. Information is not what I want to save, I want to save money from buying a new hard disk. I use my computer for gaming and school.

I even tried to swap hard drives from my asus laptop hard drives are the same but different sizes 250gb for the asus 500gb for the hp I only get a blue screen when using the asus drive so I formated it and tried to reinstall windows 7 on the hp and now it says missing operating system or subsystem missing cant get to safe mode or anything. It has an intel i5 processor m430 @ 2.27ghz 4 gb of ram and a 500 gb hard drive. If I can't repair the hp how can I put an operating system back on the formated drive I took out of my Asus?

I am having disp driver issues and to see if it was the OS, I installed on a Raptor I had laying around. So anyway, I formatted the Raptor with the install dvd and then installed vista. When it rebooted it when back to my array and told me that bootmgr.exe not found C-A-D to restart.

How did changing one drive effect another, my super-safe raid 5? Anyway I ran the recovery option from the dvd and then read through the details.

Root cause found:

boot critical file c:\windows...\crcdisk.sys is corrupt
repair action: file repair
result: failed error code = 0x2

repair action: system restore
result: completed successfully. error code 0x0
root cause found

system volume on disk is corrupt

repair action: file system repair
result: completed successfully. error code 0x0.
There's a lot more but that what stands out. Now when I hit the close, finish and it reboots. The screen goes black and hangs with a underscore flashing in the top left. I do a hard-off and it tried to boot back into vista but I get the crcdisk.sys is missing and the cycle continues.

Why if it repairs everything do I still get these errors? Is there a way to replace the bootmgr.exe without running the recovery, can it be copied from another partition/install over to my boot drive?

I see quite a bit of these bootmgr problems, why did microsoft make this file so vulnerable to corruption?
