Windows 7: "Loading Operating System... BOOTMGR is missing"

"Loading Operating System... BOOTMGR is missing"

Hi all, I am not sure if this falls into BSOD but it is during system startup which I recently had my PC crash, and then it started doing this. The crux is, at the moment I do not have a Windows 7 CD, I still have the original CD key that my computer has, so I was wondering what the fixes are. Usually, I have to F12 into the boot loader, and then pick my drive, sometimes the drive is shown (there are two, one master, one slave), and other times, I have to reboot again. It almost sounds like loose wires or something but I have checked, and nothing is loose. Are there any alternatives to fix my issue?

Thank you in advance.

Thanks, I ended up finding the solution, not sure why or how, but my boot went into my Slave, not the Master, which was why I think I was always able to boot back up. I have fixed it since.
