Windows 7: Boot Manager Missing

Boot Manager Missing

Hello, I have tried to return my HP dm1 Pavilion Notebook to factory settings.
I have a problem now as when I try to turn on my notebook I receive the message "Boot MGR missing".
I did have my entire c drive encrypted with Truecrypt.
Now when I am asked for the Truecrypt password to start the notebook I get this message.
I have a Truecrypt rescue disc but I am not sure how to use it as the notebook is not opening for anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome hp1lyn2 as an alternative for an install you could use this
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 al you need to do is get the correct version of 7 on an ISO disk or stick - the machine came with and the activation code on the sticker and just reinstall. This of course will get rid of anything HP has on the machine (bloatware) which as a general rule is useless - unless you like that stuff.
See pic for picking the ISO but read the tutorial thoroughly first.
