Windows 7: Bootmgr missing after running recovery option

Bootmgr missing after running recovery option

I have an Asus Eee Pc laptop running windows 7 and for some reason it started to run very very slow so I thought I would put it back to factory condition and ran the recovery option (F9). When this had finished I ended up with the error message "Bootmgr missing", Ctrl-Alt-Del to continue.

As I had access to an identical machine I created a System Repair CD and ran the startup repair option. It doesn't find an operating system however but when the menu appears I ran the startup option 3 times as mentioned in another thread. The error still occurs.

Details of the startup repair failure shows bootmgr.exe missing and problem event as StartupRepairOffline

I tried bootrec.exe /fixboot and /fixmbr and then ran startup repair 3 times again, but still no luck.

I've tried Diskpart and it shows 4 partitions, 1 - 100Gb, 2 - 15Gb, 3 - 183Gb and 4 - 16mb. I've made partition 1 active and then 2 active but still no joy.

I don't have a Win 7 installation DVD but the recovery partition seems to be there.

I am at a loss on what to do now so I've joined this forum hoping for some guidance.

Thanks
Bill

you need to run bootrec /fixmbr
then bootrec /fixboot

from a recovery disk . I am sure you can download a win 7 recovery disk somewhere.

In order to create such a disc you need a healthy Windows 7 PC… I assume this is not the case right // now so I created these disks for you to use:

Download a Windows 7 recovery disc(32 bit version)
Download a Windows 7 recovery disc (64bit version)

I've tried run bootrec /fixmbr then bootrec /fixboot already and that didn't help.

I also have access to an identical laptop so can I create a recovery disc from this or can I extract the files from the recovery partition on my laptop?

Thanks
Bill

Did you run them from a boot CD/DVD?

I ran them from the command prompt from the System Repair CD that was made from an identical laptop.
It didn't show any errors when it ran.

When you run those two Bootrec commands from the cmd prompt in the recovery section of the boot CD, it will not show you any errors it will just say completed successfully if it did.

It did say completed successfully.

Do I need a recovery disc to run these commands then and if so where is a safe place to download one from?

Thanks
Bill

I can see the blue links at the bottom of that post which is obviously what you meant but I thought the links were

Download a Windows 7 recovery disc (64bit version)
Which didn't go anywhere

Is the download safe and free from viruses?

I would not have posted in post number 2 if they were not free of viruses. But feel free to scan them. The actual link is in post #2
