recovery manager issues. disc 2 qont load.

I have a HP pavillion g4. With the error 'BOOTMGR MISSING' I have tried to restore this in a few ways. I have went into the boot manager and tried system restore. Doesnt work just says boot manager is missing and ctr alt del to restart. So I tried using the discs thay HP sent to me. It goes through to 63% and asks me to put the second disc in. When I do that it sits for ainute then pops up REDUCER, copy file fails from D:\PRELOAD \BASE11.SWM TO C:/RM/IMAGE/BASE11.SWM. I have no idea what else to do.

Welcome Chris.

 

While booting tap F10and go into the BIOS.

 

Run the HDD test.

Chris.

 

Sorry made dinner for me and my son.

 

Are you able to burn a bootable disc or floppy???

 

This is an ISO for CD.

 

http://hddguru.com/download/software/mhdd/mhdd32ver4.6iso.zip

 

This is for a floppy.

I have been a member of HDDguru for many years."It is safe"

 

Everyone should have this to test and or repair their HDD.

 

If you can create the FLOPPY or CD let me know.

 

We have used this program on 500,000+ hard drives.
