Windows 7: bootmgr is missing and edit windows boot options


15 Jan 2013   #11

windows 7 64 bit
 
 

your correct, f2 brings up the bios which i have set to usb first. i tried to boot with usb immediately after using ultraISO and got boot mgr is missing so i plugged it into a different computer to make sure the files were actually on the usb. thats when i noticed it started to sync. i will attempt to download the iso again and reformat it with ultra once again.

Does expanding the USB listing in BIOS Boot order priority give the stick's name?

If not it may be under another choice like Removable or HD and require you to click + or otherwise expand the listing to see the stick's name.

Try that now, then if not try it after reformatting the stick with Ultra which always works if the ISO is intact.

Look also on the first boot screen for Boot Menu key to tap.

That is almost always a bad installer. Try writing it again using Ultra: Open>ISO, Bootable>Write Disk Image, Choose USB drive, Format, Write.

It should already have the stick's native format queued. Most are FAT32.

Download a new ISO from Step 1 and write to stick with the tool in Step 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
