Windows 7: bootmgr is missing Windows 7

bootmgr is missing Windows 7

PC has started to come up with this message.

Using the Windows disc, it doesn't find the installation when you put the disc in and choose repair.

Used the cmd prompt to do the following.

Changed to C: then,
bootrec /FixMbr - said successful
bootrec /FixBoot - said successful
bootrec /RebuildBcd - says 0 installations found.

Changed over the sata cable, tried different socket on motherboard too.

Ran the WD diagnostics extended test which after several hours said 0 problems found.

Drive is recongised in the bios.

Assuming I've done everything correctly, I guess it's a windows issue?

I'll have to give the repair thing a try.
