Hello guyz.I have a serious problem that i seriously cant solve thats why i am posting in this forum.First of all, as the title says i have problem with boot.When i start my pc, this message "bootmgr is missing.Please press control alt delete etc" appears in my monitor.I read toons of forums about this issue.No one of them did work for me.This problem occured sometime in the past and i solved it by making firt boot device cd rom, boot from windows cd ,repair my pc and all back to normal.This time boot from windows 7 cd didnt work.I even tried via DOS to press bootrec /fixboot, it said that it was all ok, but again when i restarted my pc this message was shown again.What i can do? :/.I think that my hard disks are rubbish but i need your help first! (Ah, and btw sorry for my bad english! ).

Looks like it may be time to fully test those hard drives, Efialtis. Are you able to boot up from the CD/DVD rom or even a thumb drive to start recovery for Windows 7? If this is the second time with the same error, these may be signs of an unstable hard drive. You can also try to install from a usb drive by downloading the windows 7 image and try the re-install from the usb drive.

1. Boot the system with the Partition Wizard CD.
2. Highlight the C partition.
3. Click on the Partition tab on the top
4. Go to Modify
5. Activate the partition (Set active)

Then run the Repair/Install 3 times with your installation/repair disc.
