    Well, SIW2, I couldn't just "shut down the machine" because any attempt to close the Startup Repair session resulted in the same message, "The current repair operation cannot be cancelled." So I eventually killed power, fearing what negative consequences that might have. When I re-booted, it went right back into Startup Repair again, for another hour-long session. The next time I killed power and re-booted, this time I chose the option to ignore the problem and boot Windows anyway. The system seems to work OK, but I am left with the creepy feeling that something must still be wrong with it, otherwise Startup Repair would complete successfully.

    What if your boot repair disk from digital river automatically loads the Windows installation on your computer but the bootmgr is missing error continues when the computer boots on it's own, this is the problem I have. I've run diskpart, set the volume and when I reboot, I get the error; bootmgr is missing ! I can boot successful into Window, when the Windows7 boot disc is in the computer, but I don't get any repair options, it just loads into my version of windows which is installed on the computer.

    Hey mate, :)

    Since you are able to boot into Windows, post a screenshot showing all of your Disk Management with which drive is for Windows pointed out.

    In addition, post a screenshot showing the Boot tab in msconfig.

    Afterwards, post the results of running a bcdedit command in an elevated command prompt to see what it has for your boot configuration.

    The other partitions are partitions with files, I hope I can bypass having a screen shot of all drives and partitions; if I can with a little more written information ?

    Yeah, I'm going to need to see all of it to help rule it out. Don't forget msconfig as well.

    For now, enter the command below in an elevated command prompt, and press Enter to set the boot menu policy to be standard.

    bcdedit /set {current} bootmenupolicy Standard

    What do I replace {current} with ? If I'm suppose to enter the command as is; then it doesn't work.

    Is there anything specific in computer management I could tell you; I have nothing against posting my entire partitions and drive, but I prefer not too, just a personal preference !

    The command would be entered exactly as is. Did you do it in an elevated command prompt? Did you get an error message?

    I need to see the full layout to see what each partition is set as. For example, if another drive/partition is set as "active" or "system". It's not something that can be guessed at. You can black out the drive/partition names if you like. There's no personal information that will be revealed in it.
