Windows 7: Bootmgr corrupt system cannot boot after fresh install

Bootmgr corrupt system cannot boot after fresh install

Hey guys newb here please don't shoot

I was having trouble migrating my OS to a new ssd and received the "Bootmgr is corrupt system can not boot" screen repeatedly after restoring from system image, kept happening so I just decided on a fresh install.

Install went well and was fully functional (eg drivers and devices) yet when restarting after installing microsoft office, I got the "Bootmgr is corrupt system cannot boot" appeared and now cannot get the pc past this point no matter how many re boots.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance

Try this:

Startup Repair
Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.

Ok have tried 3 times as it says and now is stuck at start up repair, have removed the installation cd yet still boots onto start up repair, then says cannot repair system then says send error report, click that then says to remove any devices such as camera or whatever (none plugged in)

Can not even get bootmgr is corrupt, system can not boot anymore, goes straight to start up repair then have to shut down, any help? Ideas?

Do you have any other disk plugged besides the ssd? if so, unplug it before proceeding to repair boot.

Have tried start up repair half a dozen times still no luck, the system still shows bootmgr is corrupt system cannot boot, there is also no other devices plugged in besides the keyboard/mouse and the internal components, no other drives attached.

I am hesitant to do a fresh install as I have done that already only to have this happen again.

Just another thing, this problem has only come up when I have installed a program or something that requires a re boot, as soon as I do that I have the bootmgr problem.

I'm still unable to get onto the system no matter how many Ike's I have tried start up repair.

Any further help would be greatly appreciated, thanks again

Don't do a reinstall so much!! This doesn't cure the problem.
Boot into System Recovery Options
Does it show your win7 installation? on which drive letter? Enter "command prompt"
Code:
diskpart
list disk
exit
How may disks? I assume 1
Code:
diskpart
sel dis 0
list part
exit
how many partitions? give me the numbers, type and size please

After booting into system recovery options it does show my windows installation in the location of drive C: (local disk)

Selected the disk and it states partition 1, Primary, 119gb, offset 1024B

So only 1 disk and on it only 1 partition.

Go again to recovery environment->command prompt
Code:
c:
cd  \
attrib  -h  -s  bootmgr
del  bootmgr
Now do a startup repair
