I have a recovery DVD, startup repair fails, missing boot manager with error code 0x15...
I realized all of the sudden that my Vista has a partition of 0 MB, not good, so I looked at this
and tried steps 1-3. My partition now looks correct, and startup repair still fails (boot manager missing or corrupt) but with error code 0x2.
If i check via my 'load drivers' option, all my files are still there and look okay, all my vista OS folders look fine too. Since it filters out anything but install instruction files (could be wrong on the name there) I can't see the files themselves, but I know the directory is there.
