Windows 7: "Error BOOTMGR is missing" when installing win7

"Error BOOTMGR is missing" when installing win7

I'm having trouble installing windows 7 from my flash drive onto my netbook that runs winxp.

I followed the steps from this website

Where I used UNetbootin on my Vaio (Vista) laptop computer to burn an iso image to my flash drive. I then booted up my netbook, entered BIOS, changing the USB booting priority to the USB. However, I then get the error bessage "Error BOOTMGR is missing ctr alt del"

What do I do? I'm getting really frustrated!

Welcome to the Se7enforums! raustin

The guide was seen in the thread that sup3rsprt posted the link to there too since it points to the shareware version of UltraISO which has already proven itself on several occasions here already. That is quite reliable for writing all kinds of iso images to flash drives as well as seeing them made bootable.

Apparently the other program the article pointed to isn't making the grade there. The UltraISO program can reformat the flash drive for you and see the 7 iso wriiten in just a couple of minutes.
