Windows 7: Bootmgr is Missing; several repair methods unsuccessfully attempted

21 Mar 2014   #11

You have a second MBR install on DISK2. Can you repair it when set in Legacy booting installer as a non-UEFI device? Unplug all other HD's.

Make sure the HD you are attempting to boot is set first to boot at all times.

It may be necessary to rescue your files to reinstall Win7 using Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console,

then UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums

or Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7.

I think if you have tried everything given so far then I would cut my losses, rescue files and reinstall. Unless you've seen significant advantage to using UEFI, I would install in Legacy Mode as provided above.

Followed your steps and got the clean install working. I did the legacy mode first, but couldn't restore my system image due to a change in format. So I redid the install as UEFI, and everything worked swimmingly- ended up not losing any data at all.

Thanks for your help!
