BootMgr Missing, cannot reinstall Win7
I have tried reinstalling my windows 7 onto my SSD and am having no luck. I believe I have went through most guides / troubleshooting I could find on this website as well as others. After attempting to use my original cd with no luck, I followed the steps only to have the cd go no further than 73% of the step after "copying windows files". I then burnt / mounted, whatever you'd like to call it (properly) my Win 7 to my Thumb drive and at first windows said BOOTGR is missing. So than I read to put in the cd, repair it using a command prompt "bootrec /fixboot" which it replied successful. After which I reinserted the flash-drive only to get the same error. I have tried partitioning, "clean all" (not in that order), multiple cds, thumb drives, my friends window 7 cd for giggles to see if I would have any luck, removing a stick of ram, all usb items but the kb/m. Desperate after literally 8 hours of working on this I tried my old copy of windows xp which gave me a blue screen of sorts.
If anyone has something I haven't tried PLEASE let me know, I am in desperate need of assistance and any help would be wonderful.

Welcome to 7 Forums glod9924.
You can try to install Windows 7 as follows.
1. If there are other hard drives on the CPU and/or external hard drive then disconnect them.
2. Format your SSD Drive into a single partition using a partition manager.
3. Now place the Windows 7 Installation DVD into the optical drive and reboot.
Windows 7 should get installed.
