    Hello Yamustafa,

    Running a Startup Repair at boot may be able to fix this for you. This tutorial will help show you how to if needed.

    Hope this helps,

    No, it must be a 64-bit disc. However, you can create a 64-bit disc from the tutorial below that you can use instead to boot to the System Recovery Options screen to run the Startup Repair with.

    Create a Recovery Disc

    Re: bootmgr is missing

    hi i have a sony vaio vgn-ar61zu i installed vist due to my laptop crashing anyway half way through the installation i got an error. I restarted my laptop all i get is "bootmgr is missing press ctrl+alt+del to restart" even with the vista cd inside it it will not go pass this stage

    Ive removed the 2 hardrives and tried booting it from just the cd/dvd drive it says operating system not found. I removed the cd drive and replaced it just to make sure its not the cd drive which is faulty but im getting the same problem wit the new drive so the cd drive is ok too

    Any ideas what it can be it wont go into bios nor will it go pass bootmgr is missing
