Have spent better part of two days trying to restore my macrium backup image to a new hdd
 
I am using Macrium 6  and after much difficulty I finally was able to access the  saved macrium image backup file and start the restore  process which  took several hours.
 
Upon restarting my PC i got a "bootmgr missing error.
 
Can anyone help me solve this frustrating problem??
 
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Several hours seems like an excessive amount of time. What is the OS? When you created the image did you select all partitions on the disk? It sounds like for some reason the Boot Loader partition was not restored.

For some time now, I have selected and saved each one of my internal hard-drive's partitions as full images on my external hard-drive -- are you doing something similar?  Or, did you make one full image of the entire internal HD onto your external media?  Asking because I'm trying to visualize what the process was for the full image you're restoring.

Thanks ....I made the Macrium backup  image from my W7 PC   as one file.

 

I was able to find the bootmgr file in the restored partition 2 of the image.

 

Why do you think when I try to boot up the PC cannot see it?

I don't know.  Have you already tried Windows install DVD and ran the Startup Repair?  A few times, similar things happened to me, and the Windows install DVD's Startup Repair fixed it.  However, as others have posted elsewhere, one might need to do a few lines within a command prompt to restore what is missing.  I do not have those command lines, others do if you need them.

Perhaps related or unrelated:  sometimes the restored OS partition is not marked Active and/or not made Primary during the restore, and those have to be fixed by an external boot containing a disk management utility.

Have you tried fixing it from within the Macrium Rescue media?

opera, good call  :)   I totally forgot MR has a couple of built-in fixes for such problems.
