In that case, you need to run a startup repair to rebuild the boot files, as explained in this tutorial.

Bootmgr is missing - Fix

You may need to run it three times with a reboot between each attempt.

Seavixen:

If I understand Beachy correctly, he has a wiped hard drive via "clean" command from Diskpart.

He then made a partition in Diskpart.

Beachy:

Two questions:

1: What exactly is written on that disk you are attempting to boot from? Word for word.

2: What makes you think you are attempting to boot from that disk?

It's a pity we can't see the disk management layout so we can see what's going on.

Thank You, but

The System Recovery Options menu is on the Windows 7 installation disc.

Yes, i understand that but i cant even get it to load beyond the page that shows the PCI Device listings

Not sure i know what screen you mean here? Do you mean the screen that says IDE Channel 0 Master disk HDD S.M.A.R.T capability enabled ? Then it has a list of all the PCI devices....after the list of devices....it says Verifying pool data Boot from cd/dvd........then it says BOOTMGR is missing
2: What makes you think you are attempting to boot from that disk?[/QUOTE]

Because I press F12 to get up the boot menu and choose from the select boot device list.....CDROM

What is written on that disc, per my question in post 43?

The disk. The disk. Not a screen.

What are the other choices in the menu when you use F12?

Do you mean the windows disk?
It says windows 7 home premium, 64 bit software includes windows any-time update , do not lend or make illegal copies. DVD.

The boot menu give a choice of which will be the first boot device
Floppy
LS120
Hard Disk
CDROM
ZIP
USB FDD
USB ZIP
USB CDROM
USB HDD
Legacy LAN

Will it be easier if we skype this?

Win7 is a DVD so you need a DVD player, not CD-ROM. Is it combo?

Unplug the floppy and LS120 as they can interfere, or disable them in BIOS setup.

Set DVD or combo drive first to boot in BIOS, then HD. How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD
