Help al u wonderful people out there! I tried to turn on my computer today to find a black screen telling me
Press F2 to boot into recovery mode......
BOOTMGR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

Ok so I did the c a d thing and it just keeps bringing me back to the same spot. I pulled my whole computer out and cleaned and rep lugged back in everything. I then found my vista disk. As I had read from yr forum that if I could get my computer to read from this it may repair...... Problem is that I can't get the dam computer to do anything and get off the black screen with the above post.
Pls please help. I know there is the brains out there to fix it just hope u read this and contact me back?!?! I would be so so grateful..........

You'll need to boot the PC from the Vista Disk, you may have to change the boot order in the BIOS.

If you don't have any success with hermitt's suggestion you might try downlaoding the free version of Partition wizard > burning to Cd > changing your boot order so your optical device is first boot order > boot P.W.and click on the repair MBR option.
