Windows 7: BOOTMGR is Missing

I do not know if DBAN will write to USB flash stick with Universal USB Installer, or if it autostarts. Did it have a listing for it in Universal USB Installer dropdown? If not try the Ultimate Boot Disk which does for sure and offers more options including testing the HD, and will autostart for sure.

Yes it did have a listing in the dropdown , and guess what no luck in Autostarting DBAN without HDD ,i bet this laptop does too have restrictions in the bios for booting anything.
Because the laptop i have is somehow protected (in case of theft etc) so no other person can install a new OS on it which leaves the laptop completely useless.

Do you have a link for Universal Boot Disk ?

Can you diplomatically approach your college technicians and ask if you are able to boot from a CD or has it been blocked in the BIOS. The answer may save you a lot of wasted effort. It may be a job for them to fix.

The laptop with the bootmgr missing problem is my own . its just that my college laptop uses the same kind of hitachi hdd. But apparently it is restricted. i removed the cmos battery from the college laptop hoping it would remove the bios pw but now it wont boot without typing in bios pw which i dont know. All im left with now is my phone.... which im typing from .haha

Today i went to a computer shop and got the HDD wiped , went home , put in the boot cd and boooom! it booted like butter.

Still have one problem left , ive installed the drivers but when i play a youtube video and start to browse the internet in another tab , the sound of the music randomly starts to shudder and the whole laptop gets stuck with a clear white screen. Leaves only one option to force shutdown with the power button. When i boot up again a message pops up on the desktop ''windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown''

Did you change any drivers given by the installer and/or quickly updated/provided by optional Windows Updates? Which? As stated in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 you should only change out installer/Updates drivers if there are performance problems.

Make sure you have the latest Display and Sound drivers.

Check the logs and System Resources for clues using these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.
