Have revamped my old Desktop 1 with a new CPU - Athlon 260 8GGB RAM a Samsung 930 SSD and Coolermaster TX3 to send to my brother in the UK.
Am also going to put in a Samsung Spinpoint 500GB HDD for data transfer etc
However on power up it runs through the devices and runs through the post process which ends in a message BOOTMGR is missing.
Am using the OEM disk that the original builder sent with the machine ( a pre-built I had for a spare).
Have set the BIOS to ACHI and - which it was before and the optical for the first boot device but it keeps stalling at this message and Ctrl/Alt /Del to start again.
Am at a loss as to what is wrong anyone point me in some sort of direction please as I thought this would be a straight forward swap of components and reinstall.
Oh and have tried new cables and a brand new optical drive but with the same result.
