Windows 7: BOOTMGR is missing press ctrl+alt+del to restart

BOOTMGR is missing press ctrl+alt+del to restart

i apologize at the very beginning for being a complete idiot..

so i couldn't get the startup repair to appear on pressing f11 at the time of startup, so that i could restore to factory settings.
I read somewhere and followed the following steps:
1.Right-click on "Computer" icon and select manage.
2.This will launch the Microsoft Management Console.
3.On the left side of the MMC, click on "Disk Management" and it will show you all of the partitions.
4.Right-click on the "HP Recovery" partition and select "Mark as Active Partition."
5.When the warning prompt appears, select "Yes" - Reboot and it will automatically boot into the Recovery Manager (without pressing F11).

And step 5 never happened...instead this is what i got:
BOOTMGR is missing press ctrl+alt+del to restart
on restarting and pressing esc, i get
f1 system information
f2 system diagnostics
f9 boot device options
f10 BIOS setup
f11 system recovery

nothing works and I don't even have recovery disks(
(I know I am the dumb)..plus I don't have access to any other windows computer and my hospital software only works on windows so i need help

Run Startup Repair up to 3 times, that should fix the problem.

How to Run a Startup Repair in Windows 7

If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here: Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River.
Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD, family member, friend, etc.

For techies or folks who work on computers: Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility.
This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.

Are you sure "Home Premium" was the version installed on your computer?

That shouldn't be a problem. You mentioned in a prior post that you can view the Bootmgr on another computer. Can you view the contents on the problem pc?

OK. I haven't seen a reply to my question about a possible version conflict; are you sure the version on the problem computer and download are the same?
