BOOTMGR missing

2011-11-03, 4:16 AM

Hi,

 

I just performed a factory install and can't boot my laptop anymore... Any suggestions?

 

I get a message saying: BOOTMGR absent Ctrl+Alt+Supp pour redémarrer.

Hello,

 

You can try rebuilding your bootmgr via the following process:

 

1. Put the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when you are prompted. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.

3. Click Repair your computer.

4. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.

6. Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.

 

Note: the above assumes you did a factory restore and not a clean OEM install.

 

Good luck!

Sorry I misread your situation. I thought you could at least boot up to the point where you could access your bios and select the dvd/cd drive as first boot choice and then perform the procedure as described in my previous post.
