Help! Please and thank you. Originally I was getting an i/o error, after failed attempts to repair without loosing data, I finally gave in and did a system restore. Now I get:
BOOTMGR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

When the system restarts, I either get that message again or I can opt to F12 and boot from D drive. I can get to the repair or restore screen, but everything I have tried has not worked.

When I did a bootrec /oS.... it indicated there was 0 operating systems found.

I am a little OCD and refuse to give up or be beat.... so here I am :mellow:

I think that you need to type
diskpart
and press enter
before typing those commands.
