Windows 7 Pro with SP1 32bit

You mean to say that you deleted all the partitions on the Hard Drive and created unallocated space on the entire Disk. After that you recreated the partitions with the first one as C, if there was more than one. And after that when you tried to install Windows & by popping in the Windows 7 DVD you still get "Bootmgr is missing" message.

Could you please confirm this once again so that I am sure that I am comprehending correctly what you are trying to convey.

Angel, once you reset the BIOS it seems you got the necessary prompt to "Press any key to boot DVD" which should have booted the DVD. Is this a known-good DVD which is not dirty or scratched at all? Try burning a Repair CD to see if it will boot. You need to get a disk booted to work though the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot - Windows 7 Forums.

If you tried resizing your partitions and didn't use free Partition Wizard bootable CD then it may have failed and left your data scrambled. But the steps above show you how to browse in to see your data and if it is intact copy it out if Win7 cannot start. However you'll need to be able to boot the DVD or Repair CD first. Keep trying, as this is often due to a key not being pressed correctly or vigorously enough. If you want to burn another DVD or write to flash stick from the latest SP1 ISO you can find it in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

this ran through as before but when it came to verifying dmi pool data new command came underneath ... boot from cd/dvd: press any key to boot from cd or dvd....
it waited few seconds i tried any key but no responce from key board then the dreaded bootmgr missing appeared again
Are you using a wireless keyboard? Have you tried a different keyboard? There is a chance the keyboard may be causing the problem and it could, just as well, not be a problem.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Perform a Startup Repair of Windows. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files, including BOOTMGR.

Even though a Startup Repair is a common solution for BOOTMGR problems, don't worry if it doesn't fix your problem.
