bootmgr is missing

#1
Hello, I joined after seeing a thread detailing how to fix this problem, but was unsuccessful for me. I am hoping for help if possible.

I have a toshiba laptop running on windows 7 that hss the "bootmgr is missing" problem and the only spare computer I have is a netbook, so obviously I can't make a repair disk, I need to use the usb way.

The thread i found was How to make a windows 7 or Windows Vista USB Recovery Stick (thumb drive) and i've downloaded everything, I just need to know how to do it with a usb stick only. any help appreciated:smile:

Hello again, I was able to create a repair disk and all was fine until I got to command prompt and when typing in "bootrec/fixboot" i got "the volume does not contain a recognized file system"

Any help appreciated

Sounds like the Partition Table in the MBR has been corrupted.
You could try Testdisk and see if it can locate and identify your partitions
