Re: my laptop says BOOTMGR is do it fix?

Unfortunatly at this point your data is gone and I would suggest starting the recovery over.  The only thing I can think of that you might want to try is taking the hard drive out and using an adapter (IDE/ATA Serial adapter) that allows you to plug the hard drive into a USB port to check and see if anything is still on it.  I wouldn't count on being able to get the data at this point if it was already 15% through the recovery.

BOOTMGR is missing, Press Ctrl +Alt + Del to restart.

I did get the error message above on my Windows 7 laptop. To fix problem, a friend recommended me Windows Boot Genius that worked well!
