Windows 7: A problem that is taking me months to find a way to fix....

BootMGR Error Appeared.... (Root of all problem:BSOD)

I'm actually having this problem for a long time:

December - I downloaded SketchUp 2016 and then a BSOD appeared after restarting my laptop. But i can't find a way to fix it.

January - My dad has the installation disk so i did reinstalled windows and finally, the BSOD Stop:
0x07b stopped showing. BUT, a new problem occured and its the ntoskrnl.exe and it said that
my kernel is missing or corrupt. I thought i cant fix it anymore so i just left it.
February - My laptop is just hidden and not useful....

March - 1 Week ago - my dad left overseas with his installation disk and a laptop so i dont have a laptop to use anymore so i just borrow my sister's laptop then suddenly, i found a way to fix it:
I have to use the windows installation disk so i can have the System Recovery Options
and then i will go to command prompt and type some stuffs to fix the problem but the disk
is no longer in our house. So i seached for a way to fix it without a disk

Last Mon. - I keep finding a way to go to the System Recovery Options without the installation disk
but i cant see anything.

Last Tues. - I gaved up about the repair your computer option in the Advanced Boot Option without the installation disk and i tried all the options in there but none of them worked

Last Wed. - I found a way that i can make a bootable USB in order to have the System Recovery
Options so i made a plan that i will do it tomorrow

Today - I did installed the Rufus and Followed the steps here:
USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create Then i downloaded an iso file of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 then i started making the bootable USB with my 8gb USB using Rufus and it went fine. Until when i tried it in my self annoying and the "i wanna throw it away right now" laptop, it had a problem saying:-
"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1.insert windos cd and run a repair your computer option.
File: /boot/bcd
Status: 0xc000000f
Info: The “Windows Boot Configuration Data File is Missing
And this is the settings i did in the rufus:

Partition scheme and target system type : MBR Partition Scheme for BIOS or UEFI
File System: NTFS
Cluster Size: Default (4096 bytes)
Quick Format: Checked
Create a bootable disk using: ISO Image (so i browsed the ISO Image of the Windows 7 Home Premium)
Create extended label and icon files: Checked


So what i did to try to fix it is i made the Cluster Size to 2048 bytes but when i tried to boot from my self annoying and the "i wanna throw it away right now" laptop, it said Press any key to boot from USB so i did pressed and pressed but it dont work and it will just boot to the Hard Disk Drive...

So now, I really need your help guys because my summer vacation will be worthless without my laptop that is functioning properly and if i fix my laptop, i will treat it the same way like in 2015 again: favorite laptop of the year! Any help of you guys will mean a lot of help.


EDIT: Now i tried to reset the BIOS settings to default then when i booted to my usb, it said that BootMGR is missing...

As you are so impatient I don't think they will.

Remember it's volunteers helping on their time, you can't expect them to come running within the hour because you have a problem, if you want a rapid response then take it to a computer shop.

BTW the really badly formatted post with big text and strange line breaks doesn't help (I'll fix it).

You may need to reset your BIOS settings to default settings before installing the Windows operating system.

There ya go, that`s better

Does it have a dvd drive ? It`s soo much easier to install windows with a dvd .

Microsoft DigitalRiver Mirror

Free ISO Burner

Burn to dvd at no faster then x4 speed

?Torrent® (uTorrent) - a (very) tiny BitTorrent client (Do not install any extra offered garbage)

Everything you need is in these links to create a new windows 7 install dvd.

Download the iso file of the version you need and use the key on your COA to activate windows, you have 30 days, you do not have to activate windows right away.

I don't have that COA too since my father is the one who bought it. Also what does that you have 30 days mean?
