Windows 7: "BOOTMGR is missing, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"

"BOOTMGR is missing, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"

I've been getting this problem lately when I turn on my computer. When I press the Ctrl+Alt+Del combination, the computer does restart but sometimes it still gives me the same screen again, so I need some luck to get past it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It's extremely bothersome.

This is how the screen looks like:



Why am I getting this problem now and how can I fix it?

I'm with a problem here. I have no blank CD/DVD to put my System Repair Disk into. So I created a virtual drive (G: ), and put the System Repair Disk there.

But my computer has my physical drive (D: ) set as the first boot order. I need to access my computer's BIOS to change the first boot order to my virtual drive (G: )

But I don't know how to access my computer's BIOS. I need to know what key to press.

This is my computer's information:

What is the G: drive? Don't think a virtual drive can be made bootable but one of the USB drives could be used and the BIOS set to boot it first.

Using a CD or DVD for the Repair disc is the cheapest way to go but one could also use a USB Thumb/Flash drive. I'd use the smallest size necessary for holding the files and since it has to be bootable it'd be best to nothing else on the drive or disc. During the writing of the data it most likely will delete anything on it.

My Repair disc is on a DVD-R but you should be able to use either a DVD+R or DVD-R disc in your Optiarc DVD RW AD-7280S ATA Device. It probably is a Multi-Format model but don't use the RW discs.

Try the DELete key to enter BIOS.

I just went to the local store and bought a DVD-R, then wrote the System Repair Disk on it.

But now I have a really weird problem. When I turn on my computer, this screen doesn't show up:



What should I do now?

In that case, you may need to boot to your BIOS, and check to see if you have your "boot priority" set to have the CD/DVD listed 1st and you Windows drive 2nd.

Afterwards, see if you are able to boot from the DVD.

I kept pressing the Delete key to enter BIOS mode and that sent me to a completely blue screen with a black square in the center. That scared the hell out of me.

Why can't I just get things done.
