Windows 7: Bootmgr is missing.

06 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7
Bootmgr is missing.

This is driving absolutely crazy. Whenever I try to install Windows 7 to my new computer (I just built it, completely new parts) it says it was unable to install because it was "unable to format a partition." I ran a diagnostics and it said that the problem was that the "bootmgr was missing." Whenever I install, I install it to Disk 0 Partition 2. I have tried just about everything, and nothing is working. Could my hard drive be damaged, or is it something else?

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Try using Dban on the HDD first then install Windows 7, you can create the partition after you install from inside Windows 7 just as easily.

If you need to install RAID just hit F10 on start up with the Win 7 DVD in the drive, use the Windows 7 drivers on the disk if you need to set up RAID.

it works better if you use the first SATA port 0 on the board. Don't forget to enable the SATA drives and RAID if you are using it in bios.
