BOOTMGR is Missing [SOLVED]
« on: January 17, 2015, 08:56:48 am »
I have Peppermint 5 on a USB stick in my wife's EeePC to install it alongside P4. I've just wiped Windows 7 Starter off the drive so the only thing now on the drive is P4.  But when I try to start the netbook with the USB stick it won't load from the drive, getting the BOOTMGR is missing message.  Maybe I wiped too many things off the drive prematurely?   P4 still loads fine fortunately.

Is there hope to get the LiveCD started so I can install P5?

I used UNetbootin first.  I just decided to search for another tool and used Rufus and that got me in.  So I am started.

Thanks!

no problem at all, I was going to suggest you try the universal installer, that one has been working fine for p5, and there even is a tutorial for it here on the forum...
Here is the tutorial link if you have any problems with rufus...
http://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,760.msg6456.html#msg6456

If this problem is solved, then please remember to edit your first post, and add the word (SOLVED) to the end of the title please, thank you...   ;)

Here’s the recent mail I got
http://www.deskdecode.com/how-to-fix-bootmgr-is-missing-error-on-windows-desktop-or-laptop/
I just want to let you know that I've managed to fix it. Here is what I did:

1. I've removed the internal hard drive and fixed it into another laptop.

2. Installed windows on it using USB Flash, because the usb flash booted on another laptop even though it is the same corrupted hard drive.

3. Then fixed the internal hard drive back to my laptop and reinstalled windows on unallocated space. It created the system and boot partition automatically.

The laptop is, now, even faster than before. 

Have a great day, thanks again!
