I did once upon a time find out myself how to recompile the Windows bootloader because I did a very similar thing, the only difference being I was a complete idiot and erased the loader myself (long story!). I would run a quick search for you to try and find the guide again but I unfortunately have to get gone within the next ten minutes before I'm fired, so try Googling for "rebuild Windows 7 bootloader". Good luck!
Hey, thank you for the response. I was unable to find a tutorial, so whenever you're free could you link me to it?

Then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times. All the commands and fixes are automated in Startup Repair which will also test for other problems comprehensively, sometimes requiring it to be run up to 3 separate times with reboots.
I tried this and I still encounter the same BOOTMGR is missing error. When I go to start up repair it says that there were no problems detected, maybe that will hint you to any other possibilities to as why my BOOTMGR is still missing. Thank you for the response.
