I am typing this from my mobile device and I have googled how to fix this relentlessly!!!
I have an hp g56 laptop with windows 7
I tried to use a recovery disk but it turns out it was only an antivirus cd. (burned and borrowed from a friend) I had to change the boot order in bios for the cd to boot. The cd loaded, but once I realized it was wrong, I ejected and then tried to change the boot order again

well I got the dreaded bootmgr is missing message. I have no system restore cd.
what can I do to fix this?? Please help.
thanks

PS I am using a different battery from my broken hp dv7 laptop, would this make ANY difference??

Hello,

If you have access to another Win 7 computer you can create a Windows 7 system rescue disk and use that to do a startup repair.

You need to have a System Rescue Disk or Windows install DVD in order to fix the Bootmgr missing problem. If you can download files, I can provide a link for the Windows Install DVD (3GB) but you still would need to burn the iso on a DVD in order to do the startup repair.

 

Another option would be to recover any data off the HDD and do a factory reset where all programs intalled since purchase would be gone but you still need to be able to download a file and burn it to disk or create a bootable USB flash drive.
