Error "BOOTMGR is missing"_It doesn't allow me to use recovery disk

Hi, my sister has Sony Vaio E-Series which runs windows 7 Home edition. She encountered a problem starting up the windows and decided to use Recovery Disk, Recovery Disk stopped working and needs additional source (disk) to run. She weren't successful so decided to stop recovery and run it again. After that the error "BOOTMGR is missing" appeared! When I put the recovery disk inside the machine it doesn't work. F8 and F4 keys also don't work. So I can't use the similar solution mentioned on the internet like running "system restore". She also doesn’t have Windows 7 installation disc to run.

Please help me solve this problem

I never used OEM Recovery disk. I used standard windows 7 applications to make a recovery disk. It's a good idea to use Sony Recovery disk because I used it 2 times for my own vaio Laptop which is run by vista and recoveries always worked. Anyway I understand F10 key can solve it. Now I can use the recovery disk but still doesn't' work.


I'll do the instruction as you mentioned.

Thank You for your help.
