Windows 7: Strange BootMGR missing

Strange BootMGR missing

When running my Ramdisk with BFBC2 sometimes I BSOD.
Only in this game and nothing else, memory and componets test fine.
It will occasionaly do it if I run it from my SSD or my HD aswell.

The problem is if I run it from my Ramdisk and it bsods, then I get this
BootMGR is missing..

One time the drive was actually missing in the cmos, and I was about to pull it and take it back.
But turned the comp on later for peace of mind and it popped up again.

So anyways, more often it will be listed but I get that bootmgr..
I am running Win7 Pro64,
so I run the fix boot from the cd,
says it restart, I do.. no fix.
Tried the bootrec /rebuildbcd .. says cant find.
I do the backup and replace bcd says cant find.

Most fixed on the net say, copy bootmgr from dvd to os drive.
However it's not in the root of the cd, it's in 2 places.
\windows\boot\pcat and another.
did that, no fix.
tried /fixmbr and all stuff again.. no work.

Like at the 15th reboot, when I am again about the pull the drive out and replace it... as it's under warranty..
Poof life magic windows wants to load..

not sure wth is going.. :/

It's no big deal there are so many tutorials here a lot of them get overlooked, even by regulars sometimes.

This is a great bookmark to have for future reference.

After another blue screen from playing BFBC2 .. I get the missing bootmgr message,
I have gotten it several times since this post and doing the startup repair has always worked..
however tonite, another crash... about the 5th time running it 3 times in a row, and it's doing the same thing..
at a loss.. anything I can do from here?

sort of

Sort of it was..
I could ofcourse not get to the f8 menu that tutorial talks about.

I did however get it fixed, not sure how tho..
I noticed that it never came up and showed the operation system in the repair box main menu.. and I was doing the top radial and selecting fix startup..
I must have done that about 20 times, as I didnt have a recent backup.

Finally on one of the boots, I noticed that windows actually took a second and was looking for installed OS's.. it hadnt done that before, said it found problems and fix them.. reccomended a reboot, but didn't force...
rebooted and everything was operational..

stranger then all the other times I had done it,
I will be looking for it searching for the OS next time forsure, although how to prompt that I do not know.

anyways, off to run a backup ..
