Windows 7: Boot Manager

Boot Manager

Hi,

I did a system recovery on my laptop, and I don't have the CD for it.
So turns out it removed windows, I think, and the message, Bootmgr not available, or something to that nature.

How can I reboot my Windows 7, without the CD?

Thanks.

Hi again,

I downloaded what I needed from here: Download Windows 7 System Recovery Discs — The NeoSmart Files

However, when I try to install the files, it goes to recovery mode, it tells me to load the recovery files, but when I try to open any file from the CD, it just says, "The specified location does not contain information about your hardware."

I really don't know what to do.

Just so you know, I burnt the .ISO files on a CD, not DVD.

Also, it doesn't show any operating systems to select, and when I press find and try to open a file nothing happens except "The specified location does not contain information about your hardware."

Yes that's what I downloaded, however my computer did not come with an installation CD, OR a recovery CD.

For some reason I went through all the steps and bootmgr is still missing.
