If your Windows 7 encountered the “BOOTMGR is missing” error. If the problem isn’t hardware related you can fix it as long as you have a Windows disc handy.
Fixing the “BOOTMGR is missing” error isn’t too hard; here’s how:
- Insert your Windows Windows 7 disk into your DVD player and restart your computer.
- The next screen you see should have the Language, Time and Currency and Keyboard boxes.
- In the lower left side there are two options: “What to know before installing Windows” and “Repair your computer.”
- Click on “Repair your computer”
- Windows will then try to find the installation directory for Windows 7, depending on what you have.
- Next up is a screen with a box called Recovery Options. Click the first option, Startup Repair.
- You’ll see a Startup Repair box with the message “Startup Repair is checking your system for problems…”
- When it’s done, it will prompt you to reboot. If there is more than one problem it may reboot again to continue repairing.
- At this point, you can remove the DVD, reboot and everything should be working.
