bootmgr is missing at boot

HI,

 

I will request you to share the model number of the Desktop or Laptop that you are using so that you can get a proper solution. Even though you can try with the following solutions -

 

01. While turning on the PC in the HP / Compaq Logo what ever info comes that is Press __ to enter BIOS Setup.

02. Press that button to enter teh BIOS Setup. (In general it should be F10)

03. Check that in the BIOS Setup whether the HDD is being detected or not.

04. If the HDD is being detected then perform the HDD Smart Test and see teh result.

05. If Result is pass then go for F11 Recovery or Recovery with DVD or Reinstall OS if using a Compaq Model.

06. If the HDD is not being detected then you can try opening the PC and refixing the HDD cable or else get HDD replaced.

 

Good Luck

I'm having the same issue. I replaced my hard drive and ran HPs System Recovery DVDs.  When I go to boot Windows 7, I get the "bootmanager missing" error message.  Doesn't anyone have a fix?

That message indicates that something did not go as planned when the Recovery was run.  If this is the first startup after the Recovery, then run it again.  If it did work and now it does not, then a startup repair is needed.  See here for some help on that issue: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Startup-Repair-frequently-asked-questions

I have a 1-yr old HP Pavilion which I can not get going.  Message says "bootmanager is missing".  I have tried to go to restore and it comes back to this message.  Please advise.

While it would be best to start a new thread, more info is needed to help.  Message says "bootmanager is missing" means the install of Windows has lost it way.  First how did this come to be?  What Windows version?  What have you done so far?
