Windows 7: BOOTMGR missing + System Recovery Options not compatible errors

BOOTMGR missing + System Recovery Options not compatible errors

Had USB driver problem detailed here
Code 52 error- Windows cannot verify digital signature for USB drivers

Decided to restore using Acronis backup. Even though everything went smoothly during recovery (have restored a couple of times) and I can see all of the folders are in their normal position, I cannot boot and get BOOTMGR missing error.

When I try to use install or repair disk to fix I get the 'This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible' error

Have tried several Win 7 SP1 system repair disks and error is always the same.

Would rather not reinstall. Any ideas?

Well have you backed the machine up in any way (image or even just a normal Windows back up) as it looks like doing a clan install mate or at least that is what I would be doing.
