Windows 7: Windows 7 will not start: BOOTMGR image is corrupt.


14 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
 
 
Windows 7 will not start: BOOTMGR image is corrupt.

After re-starting the computer for Windows Update to finish, my computer (Toshiba satellite L305-S5865) gives me this message: "BOOTMGR image is missing. The computer cannot boot."
I have Windows 7 home premium 32 bit, and it was upgraded from Windows Vista.
The update in question was released on Sep10, 2011 and is type: Critical Update.

I tried the repair disc, but after running the system repair no problems were found. (?) Next, I tried system restore (2 different restore points) but each time I got and 0x8000ffff error.
I tried using CMD through this tutorial:
Quote:
Let's start by telling the recovery console to fix our MBR and bootsectors:
bootrec.exe /fixmbrbootsect.exe /nt60 all /force

Then ask it (nicely!) to try and rebuild your BCD data from scratch:
attrib -h -s C:\boot\BCDdel C:\boot\BCDbootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

If you're lucky, this'll work and you'll see a message telling you everything went OK.
Reboot your PC by typing in this command or by closing all the dialogs:
shutdown -r -t 0

Don't forget to remove your Windows Vista DVD or Recovery DVD from the drive!
After all this, I still get the "BOOTMGR image is missing" message. Can anybody help out? Thanks in advance
