Bootmgr Missing, question on how to dl CD

Hey All,

I have a crashed external hd that I've been trying to fix (comes up on devices, but cannot access it) and all morning I have been researching different ways to fix it. In doing so, I think I may have marked the wrong drive as active (I cannot recall what exactly it said) and when I went to restart my computer the Bootmgr missing screen came up. I know how to fix it, but I don't have the recovery CD any longer. I have a website where I can download the disk to fix the issue, however the only other computer I have access to is a MacBook. I'm not sure if any of you will know the answer, since this is a PC forum, but if I were to download the file onto a disk/USB using my MacBook, would the file work correctly? I have to pay for the file, so that's why I am hesitant before doing it. Would it be easier if I took it in to BestBuy? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

As long as the Mac has the capability to take a ISO file as input and create a bootable DVD or flash drive then it will work.

How about downloading the Windows 7 ISO then put it on a flash drive or DVD and let a friend with a Windows computer burn the DVD or freate a bootable flash drive for you?

Thank you both so much! I am still figuring out the mac, so I am not as computer savvy with this thing.

When I download the file onto the mac and change the format, if you will, I will still be able to use it with the PC, correct?

Also, since I'm here, I have another question. The file says I will be needing about 500 mib of space. If I have a 8gb thumb drive, will that be enough space? Please excuse me if that is a stupid question.

1024mb = 1gb, so it takes up about 1/2 a Gig, you have plenty of space

Not necessarily "change the format" because I'm not really changing anything. I guess I should have said "mac-compatible."

so you're asking if you download it on the Mac, if it will still work for windows?
