bootmgr is missing (boot error)
 
After dual booting Linux and Windows on my friend's computer, Windows will no longer boot. I get the message when trying to boot windows "bootmgr is missing." I tried using the windows cd to do a recovery. that did not work. How is this fixed?

IIRC you must go into recovery mode (the command prompt) and run fixmbr

Does Vista have that? I know it is a feature with Xp.

Hi

You might have accidentally deleted vital system files which are required to boot Windows.

Try the following link:

I hope it works for you!

I did try that already. I found it several websites from google saying to do the same thing, but it didnt work for me. I ended up reformatting the drive with ext3 and having it mount at /home.
