BOOTMGR is Missing

2011-05-15, 0:39 AM

I need help I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to computers but my T60 won't boot up it says its missing the BOOTMGR. How do I fix this without a disk? Or how can i get a disk so I can reinstall XP? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hi and welcome to the forum!


When the ThinkPad powers up and shows you lenovo ThinkPad logo on boot, press the ThinkVantage button and follow this procedure:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-70803#step5

 

Hope this helps.

That document says to use a recovery disk that i don't have. I know there are files that can be download but when I put them on to another PC to make a disk it doesnt work. I'm really stuck and have no idea what to do.
