Missing BootMGR tried the recovery process

#1
Hi, I have an HP Slimline desktop that now comes up with the missing BootMGR error after it appeared to lock up yesterday.

I have followed the instructions to download the 64 bit recovery image and burned it to a DVD using ISOburn software.

When I attempt to boot from the DVD it starts and shows loading files but then the monitor becomes grainy and only displays the Microsoft Coproration copyright and a status bar that never moves. It appears the computer is locking up at this point.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Tom
