  • Hi,

    First of all, please refer to the article to check if you can resolve the issue:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982116

    Based on the current status, I would like to propose the following suggestions.

    1.I would like to share an article with you.

    Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060/
     
    2.Restart the computer and boot in BIOS ( Boot in BIOS by pressing Del, F2 or other keys which is different from brands of computers), then check if CD-ROM can be detected in BIOS.

    If CD-ROM can't be detected in BIOS, the issue may be related to hardware defect. To identify this, you can test this CD-ROM to check if it can be read properly in another available computer. If it is the case, I need to suggest that you contact hardware manufacturer for support.

    3. What is the optical CD/DVD drive, SATA or IDE? If it is SATA optical drive, you may need to configure settings in BIOS to let AHCI chipset use PATA emulation mode. For more information, please visit the following website.

    SATA optical drives are not available after you start a Windows Vista-based computer

    Meanwhile, for the "BootMgr is Missing" error, this issue occurs when the bootmgr is not installed on the hard drive that windows is installed. When you are trying to boot to windows, the one without bootmgr.
    To resolve the issue, either unplug the hard disk with window and replug it as the first priority on BIOS or copy bootmgr from another computer and paste it on the windows hard disk.

    Hope this helps. Thanks.

  • If the previous method does not resolve the problem, you can rebuild the BCD store by using the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment. To do this, follow these steps:
    - Get your Vista installation DVD and pop it into your drive.
    - Then restart your computer.
    - Press a key when you are prompted.
    - Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next
    - Click Repair your computer
    - Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next
    - In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt
    - Type bootrec /rebuildbcd and then press ENTER
    • If Bootrec runs successfully, it will present you with the installation path of a Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type Yes . A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.
    • If Bootrec cannot locate any missing Windows installations, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it. To do this, type the following commands in the order shown below: (Remember to press ENTER after each command)
    bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
    ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
    bootrec /rebuildbcd
    Now Restart the computer.
