Windows 7 System will not boot and is looking for installation CD

Several Windows 7 Systems will not boot and is looking for installation CD. Have been working fine for 2+ months.
Model; Lenovo x201
HDD;Solid State (Passes all diags)
OS: Win 7 Enterprise
number deployed 1250
15 have had issue in past week
I can see that MS10-015 KB977165 Cause a similar issue on XP and Vista and has been pushed out via Altiris.
Any ideas?

Repair with installation disk a few times and still will not boot.It states that the Windows Boot Manager needs to be repaired. It tries to repair and makes a backup the BCD, but still fails to boot into Windows. I can reinstall windows and look at the old files in the WIndows.old folder but do not see anything.
?

{Quote]I doubt jaded has any discs with this machine as it appears to be a company laptop. As he/she says "I'm stuck and its not even my laptop (given by my company) so i need to fix this issue quickly" He probably has not got the right permissions to delve too far into the system even if he could get in an it appears he can't!
I think the only thing to be done is to come clean and report it back to his company![Quote]

These machines are locked down and the users cannot install or uninstall apps, modify services, or edit the registry. I have been reimaging them with a base win 7 to get the user data off using WDS

May be the answer

1. delete bootcat.cache from C:\windows\system32\codeintegrity\. on broken pc.
the file is 384 bytes when broken , is 2,344,056 when OK. is beeing recreated when booting.
2. copy from a ok pc c:\windows\system32\catroot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}\ to broken pc.
3. restart.
