Do make sure you're booting from the CD drive before trying to format. And if he can't boot from the CD, how can he boot from any other 3rd party tool?

His original post suggests that his boot order was not properly set to boot from the CD drive, thus the missing boot mgr error. Once this is corrected, he will be able to format the drive before installation..

Yes, but why bother formatting and reinstalling Windows if he can boot from his repair disk?

Because, like an upgrade, using the repair option is not a 100% fix. By formatting the drive, you are ensuring that no garbage is left behind to possibly corrupt the OS.. If the installed hardware is not borked, then a format/fresh install is the only option in the OP case ...

You can restore from the Windows.old folder this creates.

Yes, you COULD do that, but then in the end, you still havent done a proper full format, which, i think, if im paying attention, is what we are considering doing here.

If you were talking to me, my method involves a clean install OVER the old one.
That will not do a full format... But yeah.

Backing up the data needs to be done anyways. I would recommend just backing up from windows so you can restore from it, and wipe the drive and reinstall.

Yeah, what Tews was talking about, doing a format and install, so no junk is left behind, starting fresh, backups a must, and sorry if i sounded cocky or angry.

No, it was my mistake, I both misinterpreted your statement, and my own solution.

I sort of forgot about wiping (formatting) the drive. So I agree, backup then wipe and clean install.
