Fedora Installation :: Dual Boot 12 And Windows 7 - BOOTMGR Is Missing

Dec 27, 2009

I just installed fedora 12 on my laptop. fedora is booting and working fine, but the problem is that now windows isn't booting. when I try to boot windows i get the next message:

"BOOTMGR is missing"

I looked at /boot/grub/menu.lst, and those are the lines for booting windows:

title win7
rootnoverify (hd0,1)
chainloader +1

then i checked with fdisk -l and verified that windows is actually installed on the second partition (sda2).the next thing i tried was to use the repair option at the windows 7 installation DVD. the problem is that when i try to preform a startup repair, the installation DVD doesn't recognize my existing windows 7 installation, and therefore wasn't able to repair it. if it's relevant, here are some more details on my machine:

HP probook 4310
windows 7 64-bit
fedora 12 32-bit

i have one sata HD which I devided into 6 partitions {a system partition of the laptop, windows 7 (NTFS), swap, /boot (ext3), / (ext4), /home (ext4)}

Fedora Installation :: Dual Boot / Windows Vista Wouldn't Boot Because "BootMGR Was Missing"?

Sep 4, 2010

I had installed Fedora 13 on an unused partition of my ATA hard-drive yesterday. The primary OS here was Windows Vista.

Anyway, everything was working fne for coupla hours after which I had to restart F13 for some reason. This is when all the trouble began ..

Fedora wouldn't boot cause of some "power issues" - there were none. Windows Vista wouldn't boot because "BootMGR was missing"

I figured if I removed Fedora using the live CD - format the partition, it would help. It didn't. Well, atleast the partition got formatted. I tried re-installing F13 from the live CD but it doesn't finish the process - saying a command, something to do with 'shutdown' is not valid.

I tried repairing Vista from the Installation DVD but it is unable to do so.

Right now, on rebooting the computing, I enter the 'grub' console. I tried using grub commands to boot "Windows" from the (hd0,0) partition like thus,

grub> rootnoverify (hd0,0)
grub> makeactive
grub> chainloader +1
grub> boot
But it still maintains that "BootMGR is missing" .

Fedora Installation :: Dual - Boot Into Windows 7 From GRUB - Black Screen Says "BOOTMGR" Is Missing

Apr 27, 2010

I've had Windows 7 installed for a few months now and would like to install Fedora 12 on a separate partition. I've tried this three times now, all of them ending with something wrong. The problem that exists for me now is that when I install Fedora 12 and boot up for the first time in GRUB, Fedora 12 works fine. ut when I boot into Windows 7 from GRUB, it just comes up with a black screen and says "BOOTMGR is missing; press ctrl + alt + del to restart" at the top. I don't believe that GRUB is booting into the wrong partition because I have no Windows recovery partition, just Windows 7. Also when I try and fix the Windows 7 partition with the system recovery disk, it says that the volume is corrupt every time. At this point I have everything backed up on a separate drive so I'm open to try installing Fedora 12 again even if it risks screwing up my Windows 7 partition, I would really just like to have a functioning dual boot.

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot With XP BOOTMGR Missing?

Feb 18, 2011

I have an Asus EEE (it has no cd drive) and I've been using Ubuntu as my primary system. I was thinking about installing Windows XP though flash drive, so that I can dump Wine. I formatted the flash to ntfs, flagged it as boot and extracted the cd's iso there. Reboot, changed priorities in BIOS and it keeps saying "Missing BOOTMGR, press ctrl+alt+del". Now, from my search it`s a fairly common problem, though all of the solutions just say to reinstall from a cd or recover from windows, what is of course not possible. Do you think it's related to only this version (XP) ? Or is it global, so the same thing would happen were I to use Win 7? From what I've read this problem is solely related to Vista/7, not to XP.

Fedora Installation :: 12 - Error Bootmgr Is Missing When Try To Boot To Windows 7

Feb 12, 2010

My previous setup was Windows Vista on partition 1, Windows 7 on partition 2, and my recovery partition on partition 3. I'm trying to switch from vista to fedora (cuz I hate vista), so I removed partition 1 and 3, expanded partition 2 a bit (from 80 gig to 150), and moved it all the way to the left with gparted. This gave me a 150g partition labled sda2 as my first partition. I then installed fedora on the (about) 150g of free space. After going into fedora, I used fdisk /dev/sda with menu option f to fix my partition labels. Now I have Windows 7 on partition sda1, fedora's boot on sda2, and fedora on a logical volume in sda3.

My issue is that I have that same old error bootmgr is missing when I try to boot to windows 7. I checked my grub menu, my fdisk, it all looks good to me, so hopefully someone can help me out. If I'm unable to do this without reformatting, could someone please advise me on a program to clone my windows 7? I have a lot of expensive programs on there that I could, in theory, go back to the manufacturer and request a new copy, but I doubt if I even have any license keys written down and I don't know where they would be, so hopefully I can pull them all off and have them work on a new install. Contents of fdisk -l and cat /boot/grub/menu.lst to follow:

Ubuntu :: Bootmgr Missing After Restoring Partition Table On Dual Boot

Jun 2, 2011

Im running ubuntu 10.10 on a dual boot machine together with vista. When I tried to delete a partition in gparted I accidentaly deleted the general partition table so I had to run testdisk on a live cd to restore it. The problem is that once I had done that and rebooted I get the message bootmgr is missing. I suppose Testdisk deleted or overwrote mz grubloader.

I use ubuntu 10.10. Everything was great until i formatted my C drive which had win xp. Now at startup an error message occurs instead of booting ubuntu (BOOTMGR is missing. Press Cntrl+alt+delete to restart). I searched a little bit and found that may be I need to install GRUB (boot loader). how do i install grub? using "fdisk -l" .. I found out that my bootable partition is C drive (NTFS /dev/sda1) while ubuntu is installed on another partition (ext3 /dev/sda3)!

Fedora Installation :: 12 Windows Bootmanager - "BTMNGR Is Missing - Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete To Restart"

Feb 12, 2010

Though I kinda do wish that I could just fully migrate to Fedora (or Linux in general), I still do need Vista for some things (like, until I can get this mess with my tablet and speakers sorted out). However, when I tried to boot into Vista this morning (by selecting "other" in GRUB) it said "BTMNGR is missing. Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to restart."

Will I have to use the Vista Home Premium installation disc to fix this? Surely, telling it to automatically fix startup problems would work, right? I'll try later today PS This problem could also be related to my other 'yum update' problems. All of my problems started when I performed a whole kernel update, so that could also be why I can't boot into vista.

Fedora Installation :: GRUB Win 7 And 13 - BOOTMGR Is Missing

Jun 13, 2010

Windows 7 wont start from the GRUB menu. After selecting the windows 7 entry I added to my '/boot/grub/menu.lst' i get an error saying BOOTMGR is missing. Both windows 7 and fedora 13 were freshly installed just yesterday. Win 7 first on one HD, fedora on another.

Heres some info:


Ger�t boot. Anfang Ende Bl�cke Id System
/dev/sda1 * 2 26762 15360000 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 26762 35682 5120000 82 Linux Swap / Solaris
/dev/sda3 35682 126504 52131840 83 Linux


Windows is installed on my 200 GByte HD, sdc1 - and since Fedora is booting from sda1 and the menu.lst says root (hd0, 0) the windows entry should look like root(hd2,0), no? I tried a couple of different variations of my menu.lst, but i always got this BOOTMGR error. I read that mapping is not needed since vista, is this true? i can only enter the GRUB menu after hitting escape on start up, is there any way how i can have it starting the menu automatically?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 / Vista Dual Boot - Missing Or Corrupt Info On Restart

Jun 19, 2010

This morning I attempted to 'clean' up some old files/programs from my dual mounted (Vista/10.04) laptop. All seemed ok until I tried to run Vista and I got the following:
status Oxc000000F
missing or corrupt

I then tried to reboot into Ubuntu but it keeps trying to load windows. It looks like I have somehow lost my grub, so now I have lost Ubuntu and Vista. I tried my Vista Start Up disk and at the command prompt I entered:
Bootrec.ext /fixboot
Bootrec.exe /fixmbr
on restart it went back to the 'missing or corrupt' information. Is there some way I get get back to normal?

Software :: Dual Boot Grub - Windows XP BOOTMGR Not Found

Nov 30, 2010

Rebuilt an old box of mine and changed up the drives. Did not think it was an issue as I was formatting the drives and reinstalling the systems. I installed XP first. Then PCLOS. After PCLOS was installed XP would not boot and gave me an error saying the BOOTMGR was not found and to restart. I figured that I just had to map the drives as XP was installed on HD1 and not HD0. But no changes I made to the GRUB configuration seemed to work.I have run a script to get all the information you guys will need already. Let me know what I am missing here


Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010
============================= Boot Info Summary: ==============================
=> Grub 0.97 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks on the same drive
in partition #1 for /boot/grub/stage2 and /boot/grub/menu.lst.

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting Up The Computer And Getting BOOTMGR Is Missing

Jan 18, 2010

I am attempting to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix (I even tried Ubuntu Desktop) off of a USB drive. I use unetbootbin to prep the drive, my BIOS is configured to boot off the USB Hard Drive, after booting up the computer I get a message that reads "BOOTMGR is missing, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" This laptop is currently running Windows 7 which, after removing the USB Drive, boots up fine.

I've seen other posts on this but they all refer to dual-booting and modifying grub configuration files. I'm not even to that point yet (and don't even want to dual boot, to be honest) - I'm just trying to get onto the "LiveCD" so I can format and install.

Software :: 'Bootmgr Is Missing' After Failed Installation Of OpenSUSE

Jan 9, 2011

I tried install openSuse on my HP notebook which had windows 7 installed, but due to some reason it failed. Then I ran into this "Bootmgr is missing" problem. Now there is no GRUB menu and I can't boot into windows 7.

And when I install opensuse, I mounted '/' to '/sda4/a' and '/home/' to '/sda5/b' and 'swap' to '/sda/6' and told opensuse to format a and b to ext3 and c to swap.I know my bad here that I was guessing to do these.
During the installation, it failed.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Bootmgr Is Missing - Recover And Use Windows 7?

Jan 28, 2010

I recently decided to do a dual boot computer running windows 7 and fedora 12. After running disc management in windows 7 and shrinking my main volume down so there was enough unallocated room to install fedora I rebooted and ran the fedora live cd. I then chose the option to install fedora on unused hard drive space.

After all of this I booted up fedora and everything ran great and I have access to all my windows files when I mount that drive. I restarted my computer and tried to boot into windows 7 and ended up with the error "bootmgr is missing press ctrl alt del to restart". Is there any way to recover from this and use windows 7 again?

Debian Installation :: Dual Boot XP / Squeeze - Blank Screen With J On Restart

May 8, 2010

I've had Windows XP Home installed on my netbook (Toshiba NB205) and I've just tried to install squeeze via net install. In particular, I installed grub. Everything seemed to go ok during the installation, but when I boot up, all that appears is a blank screen with nothing but at "j" and a cursor. One thing I can think of that might offer a clue, is that when asked to installed grub, the installer said it recognized two operating systems: Microsoft Windows XP Home, and Windows NT/XP. The latter is not really an operating system, but the backup partition.

I don't know how this might affect grub's functioning. What does this "j" mean? Looking at this: [URL]. Could this have some thing to do with boot flag? Should I switch it to my NTFS partition instead of my root partition? Doing that at least let's me boot into Windows. But that's not what I want. I've never dual booted before. So I booted back up with my USB, intending to reinstall Debian, and it loaded grub instead. So apparently grub is now on my USB. Then it booted me into Debian.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Upgrade Hangs On Install Restart At Starting Up

Jun 5, 2010

I've been using ubuntu for a couple of years rather successfully on my dual-boot Vista/Ubuntu. It upgraded to 8.0(4?) LTS, 10.04LTS and I kept it there until this afternoon I followed the instructions on the ubuntu site to open up a terminal and update-manager --somearg to provide me with a nice little "Upgrade" button on the update manager. I clicked said button per the instructions, let it do it's downloading and whatever else it does. The last step of the installation is a system reboot. I let it do that, and then my grub menu comes up as more-or-less this:

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.32-32-generic
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.32-32-generic (recovery mode)
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.24-28-generic
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.24-28-generic (recovery mode)
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic (recovery mode)
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, memtest86+
Other operating systems:
Windows Vista/Longhorn (loader)

If I select the top one, I get:
Starting up ...
with a blinking cursor under the S for a LONG time (used the power switch after ~40 mins). I tried the second 2.6.32-32 option for recovery mode. It spit a bunch of gibberish to the screen for a couple seconds and then stopped, presumably doing the same thing, just with 100% more gibberish. I tried booting into Vista, that worked fine. Just to reiterate, I've not yet seen a 10 LTS login screen or desktop, and can't get one yet (just a "Starting up ...") Just to add, I did try searching, but since the only info I had to go on was 8 LTS to 10 LTS upgrade, and "Starting up ...", well those are just hard keywords to get any meaningful info.

Slackware :: "BOOTMGR Missing".Can't Boot Other OS?

Mar 3, 2010

Im not sure if this it is in bad taste to post the same "thread" in two separate forums Slack/SlackInstall).If so, please let me know and I will refrain from doing this. However, I simply noticed the "SlackIntall" forum gets much fewer hits. Issue: I recently dual installed Slack (alongside Vista). I get the Slackware screen, with a choice to boot "windows" or "slackware". If I chooseSlackware: it boots! (very excited)Windows : "BOOTMGR missing, please restart" It was suggested that I post both the /etc/lilo.conf and fdisk -l which I have done below. Things I have tried: It was suggested that perhaps the boot flags were misappropriated, so I moved the flag (using gparted) from /sda3 to /sda2 however this didn't work. /etc/lilo.conf

# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
