Bootmgr is missing?
Hi All and anyone that can help?
I am a newbie, i have googled quite alot on bootmgr, i have tried allsorts, still cant get my pc to boot up.
m2n sli deluxe MB
Nvidia 8600 GT gRaphics card
4 GB Ram
Hitachi 160GB cwin 7 on) + d: (data) Partitions
Seagate 500GB (storage)
WD 1000GB (storage)
Not sure if i did something before i switched my Home Built PC off.
In BIOS it states SATA 1 - 160GB
SATA 2 500GB
SATA 6 1000GB
SATA 4 is DVD drive
It is in order i have checked and all drives are located.
When pc was working, in My Computer it showed only C:, didnt show D: at all (2nd parttion), then my 1000gb drive was F:, and it said cant access it as the semaphore timed out. I had 500gb of music on there, was gutted, when i went into disk mgmt it said RAW on the partition, i could not format, or access or partition the drive. My D: didnt have a drive leter? nor was active. i could access the 500gb drive.
So now it says Bootmgr is missing.................
I have win 7 install disc, i load and go to recovery section
doesnt find my drive or where windows is installed, so i goto cmnd prompt and do bootrec /fixboot then it says cant access drive, semaphore has timed out
so i then got to scanos, it finds it on E: which is my C:? so i thin k all my drive letters are mixed up, so i check a few letters:
Through cmnd promt
E: drive is my C:
D: drive is my 500gb
f: is my dvd drive
nothing else is located. so i am baffled.
I know a bit about pcs enough to get me outa some sticky situations, but im stumped. tried a few cmnd promt threads on here.
Unplugged all my drives and only put C: in still wont do anything. i have gone to INSTALL and its found 69GB which is the first partition, but the rest of the drive is missing?
I went into partition magic 8 to try to partition my 1000gb drive?
Any help would be appreciated.

I've encountered this a few times today trying to install Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron. At first I tried from a Key-card, but when it restarted the first time it started the install process from scratch, and then would show no bootmgr when it tried to reboot. I got on via DVD eventually, but if I tried to reboot with anything in a USB port, it says it can't find bootmgr, and won't if I just press ctrl-alt-del to restart it, I had to switch it off altogether, and then restart, and it's been running since.
