Hey if anyone can help me out
with this it would be hugely
appreciated.
Basically i put a new hard drive
into my computer and tried to
install windows XP
It keeps saying bootmgr is
missing, press ctrl + alt + del to
restart.
The OEM windows XP Service ppack 3 .disk is
inside my cd-rom drive and i
went to the bios and put the
cd/dvd as first, and the hdd as
second, pressed f10 (save and
exit.) and still no luck.

System manufacturer and model?

 

Who provided your Windows XP disk?

 

If you have a valid XP install disk, complete with Recovery Console...you can try running the FIXBOOT command.  See #6 at http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-things-you-can-do-when-windows-xp-wont-boot/ .

I have the same problem, my C:\ is become an extended partition (I don't know why or when it become to this partition type) so when I install the Windows it ok but if I upload it to diskless server or using the ghost image file from the same system model with Primary partition format, it still got the problem with NTLDR (XP) or Bootmgr (vista/7) missing. you can fix this problem by deleting all partition if you don't care with the file on it or remove your HDD and plug it to another PC go to Disk management then delete your first partition on your disk and creat this parttion to Primary partition type (when you plag it to another PC remember your disk is Disk1, disk0 is system disk).

it only my experience.
let's try bro
