How do I install Windows 7 Home Premium on "Bootmgr is Missing"?

    Question

  • Ok, I'm not much of an expert on computers, but here's how it went.

    I inserted the Windows 7 CD and I chose the language and stuff and so on. When I got to the screen that shows the hard drives, I formatted the only one hard drive that was there, it included XP (I don't have XP Disc). So while it was installing it said that a file was missing. I restart it and now it says "BOOTMGR is Missing. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del". But I insert the CD (even start up the computer with the cd in it), and it doesn't pop up.

    How do I resolve the issue? I need to use my computer fast.

  • Can you let us know how you get the win7 CD? You burned it, or ordered one.

    As your Windows 7 haven't installed successfully yet, you need reinstall once more, it's better to use another CD to install it, you can borrow one from your friend, then activate it use your key. If you burn the CD by yourself, it's better to check if the ISO file is intact first. If your machine support boot from USB, you can try to Install Windows 7 from USB Drive

  • Is there any other way instead of a USB Flash Drive? I don't have any of the minimum requirements "4GB". I only have a 2 GB.

    Wait, after I read it again, I think I understood this.

    Your saying to get like a totally blank CD, right? Then copy the Disc Image and put it on the blank one, correct? If it's like that, then I think I'll have to buy a Blank CD of 4.27 GB then.

  • Hi,

    Pls use your original DVD to perform a clean install again. You can refer to:
    http://pcsupport.about.com/od/operatingsystems/ss/windows-7-clean-install-part-1.htm

    what’s the result?

    If it failed again, you may have to return and replace this corrupted DVD to Wal-Mart.

    PS: yes, it need a 4GB flash disk before setup Windows 7 from USB, but it’s not just copy and post, you have to follow all steps in that article to make sure this USB flash disk is bootable
