If you have a valid Windows install disk...no need to partition before beginning the install.

 

Delete that partition...create a new one during the install.

 

Boot manager is missing does not even relate at all to installing a single version of Windows on a hard drive.  It relates to an existing install.

insert your recovery disc and boot to it by...
1. restart pressing F2
2. at the top, use arrow keys to select "boot"
3. put "boot from cd/dvd" at the top of the list
this will boot to the recovery disc

you will need to answer questions about time zones and stuff, kepp navigating until you come to an icon that looks like the command prompt and select it

type in:
bootrec.exe /fixmbr

this will fix your boot loader
