Windows 7: CDBOOT: Couldn't find BOOTMGR

CDBOOT: Couldn't find BOOTMGR

Just tried reinstalling and lm getting "CDBOOT: Couldn't find BOOTMGR" which lm very confused about.

my specs should be as stated in my profile.

lm not exactly having any system problems as such just a minor freeze on closing Firefox but since its been a year l thought it was time for some early spring cleaning, lve also not seen any BSODs either.

lve looked around and tired one or two things, like changing boot priority etc and using a PS2 keyboard but l still get the error.. nothing whatsoever has changed since install apart from that its now a year old, lm even using the same backup disk, lm just wondering if there is anything lm missing because this issue is really confusing me

Restore MBR.

One of those may help.

1) Try Cleaning the Windows 7 Installation DVD.
2) try cleaning the DVD drive.
3) If you have a spare DVD drive, try with spare drive.
4) If you downloaded the ISO, try reburning.
