Well, I have looked at the tutorial on here to fix this problem- (http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/fixing-bootmgr-is-missing-error-while-trying-to-boot-windows-vista/) but this requires the System Disk or the Recovery Disk which I do not have. So I can I fix this problem? Can I make a recovery disk with another computer that has Vista on it? If so how?
Any help would be appreciated!!
Thanks!

Welcome to HTG, Branway.
You could borrow a friends, neighbors, Relatives copy of Vista dvd as long as it's the same version that's installed on your PC then follow this tutorial.

I have also looked at the tutorial on how to fix this problem. This system was a gift so it did not come with a System Disk or Recovery disk. I did try a Vista from another computer but it was as if the cd drive did not recognize it at all. I can't get to a dos prompt to type in anything. I am able to get to the reboot menu and set up menu, but not sure what to do with either of them..lol. Could you please advise how I can repair this. It was for my grandchildren and I just hate that I busted their bubble and they are not able to play on it now. I would so appreciate you advise and assistance in this matter.

According to Computerhope.com on OEM computers such as Dell Hp Emachine Acer Compaq or ASUS you can access the hidden partition that will make your computer become the way it was when you first used it. you can access it with a pre-installed application or with a key combination as it boots. why don't you press the key depending on the computer.

Alt+F10=Acer
F9=ASUS
F10/F11 Compaq HP
Ctrl+F11 or F8=Dell
F11+Emachine Gateway Lenovo
F10=Sony
0/F8=Toshiba
