I have followed the instructions in the following link (https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/fixing-bootmgr-is-missing-error-while-trying-to-boot-windows-vista/) but I can't even get the CD/DVD to boot.
The screen comes up with "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." and i hear the DVD loading but then it goes straight back to the error message "BOOTMGR image is corrupt. The system cannot boot.
Is there something that I'm missing? I've downloaded and burnt the iso from neosmart.net and use the recovery image from there.
Even at the boot screen when I press ESC to try and go the Start Menu it still goes to the error message.
I'm using Vista Home Premium on a HP Pavilion DV4-1042TX
Any ideas guys?
