BOOTMGR is missing , press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

Hello,
I upgraded my Asus win 7 home premium laptop up to windows 8 pro in October 2012 and it stopped working in January.
I found the recovery disk that came from my computer and set the PC to boot from disk, it went through that all normally (what partition would you like to restore to etc.) and then it kept rebooting and coming up with the message BOOTMGR is missing press Ctrl+alt+del to restart, when set to boot from hard drive, and the recovery process kept starting from the beginning when booting from disk.
Could I have some help on how to get back into the Os
Thank you
mrgreganregagu

Ps. The recovery disk has already formatted my hard drive

Do you have an option in boot devices of UEFI boot or something similar? If so, try that

You may need to run startup repair up to 3 separate times rebooting each time.

If you are getting that message it means the disk is NOT booting. Watch this video: How to Boot A Computer from CD or DVD - YouTube

To repair the installation you have if it's still present boot into System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair a few times, report back findings. If it doesn't offer to System REstore, run that from the Options List.

If these fail then start at the top of the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start which also provides the Win7 disk needed for repairs or possible reinstall.

If all of these fail there are steps for rescuiing your files to run Recovery or get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

If Recovery will not run from its partition or disks and you prefer to get the inferior install try wiping the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command before running the disks:

Glad to hear it. If you'll stick with the tools and methods in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
then you'll get and keep a perfect install for as long as you do.

If you're prone to infection, you can add the Malwarebytes Real Time Protection trial by reinstalling it, then buy it after trial period. It has solved all chronic infection by my users who do so.
