Windows 7: BOOTMGR is missing

22 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BOOTMGR is missing

So I was doing the steps in this thread, and I came to the point where you set the partition to 'active. However, I accidently turned my computer off and now it tried to boot from that partition and it gives me the error message "BOOTMGR is missing" because I literally don't have anything on the disk yet. No Windows 7, nothing.

My question for you is: Can I change the partition that is being booted in BIOS or how do I change that?

Hopefully you remember which partition was marked Active, either the Windows 7 partition or its 100mb System Reserved (Preferred if you have it) partition on most setups.
