He said his USB device doesn't have the repair options... He's got some kind of customized unattended install media, which can still be used but he just has to run some commands as in the link I gave.

He might also need to use the diskpart command to set the partition with the boot files to "active".

I had tried :

bootrec /fixmbr (press enter)
bootrec /fixboot (press enter)
bootrec /rebuildbcd


but no solution. Still :BOOTMGR is Missing!!!!

Any suggestion??

you probably still need to use the diskpart tool to set the boot partition as active. As I mentioned above.

DISKPART (enter)

Partition 1 ACTIVE (enter)

Yes you will have to make the C: partition active. Something like

diskpart
select disk 0
select partition 1
active

Make sure you selected the correct disk to make active. Run list part or list volume and a * will appear next to the one that you selected.

Then you will probably have to run your bootrec commands again afterwards.

Now I have done the partition 1 active.

If i run bootrec /ScanOS it says : Total identified Windows installations: 0

and stil "BOOTMGR is missing"

Yeeeeeeees!!! I got my Windows 7 running again with out losing any data.

I downloaded Windows 7 Recovery Disc and then put it on my USB included Hirens BOOT CD.
After that i could boot up and start STARTUP REPAIR.

Thanks for all your help!!!
