How to Fix Bootmgr error in Windows Vista and Windows 7

If your Windows Vista/Windows 7 computer has encountered  “BOOTMGR is missing” error. If the problem isn’t hardware related you can fix it with relative ease as long as you have a Windows Vista DVD handy.

If you don’t have one, you can create a Windows Vista repair disk using guide.

Boot off the Windows Vista DVD and then click Next at the first prompt:

You should see a link in the lower left-hand side for “Repair your computer”

The installation process will attempt to find your Vista installation directory. If there’s more than one in the list, select the correct one and then use the Next button again.

Click the first link for “Startup Repair”

The installation process will repair the system, and then prompt for you to reboot.

Alternatively you could have chosen the Command Prompt option instead, and use the 
following command to fix the boot options only: 

bootrec /fixboot
