i'm new to this forum but i recently used easybcd to try to change my bcd file (i only knew how to change boot.ini files), and i subsequently deleted my boot manager. i have a crapload of important files and my vista machine won't boot. it says:

bootmgr missing

Hi jamba, welcome to NST.
I take it you hit the "uninstall Vista bootloader" option (It's there for people who have removed Vista and gone back to XP).
Follow the instructions in the wiki to get it back again.

Boot manager prblem

Hi,

I newly joined Neosmart. And I have same problem with the boot manager. I followed your link for the solution. But it says, BOOT from DVD. My CD drive is destroyed and hence I cannot boot from CD/DVD. However, I change the boot device to Removable device and in a pen drive, keep the windows vista software and boot manager file.

But I donot know, why it is not booting. It again says

Boot manager missing
Press any key to restart

Please help me

Thanks
Divya
