I just recently installed windows 7, and all is working well, besides the fact that every time I boot my computer, I get the "bootmgr is missing" blabla.
Well, I found a bit of a problem related to this from this forum, but the help in it did not solve my case. I've tried the repair thingy on windows disc, but it doesn't fix it. In fact, it doesn't do anything. I ran bcdedit, and this is what I got :

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.


Windows Boot Manager
identifier {bootmgr}
device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume1
description Windows Boot Manager
locale en-US
inherit {globalsettings}
default {current}
resumeobject {e8e6ee58-70f7-11de-b5a8-9b0b4123e794}
displayorder {current}
toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
timeout 30

Windows Boot Loader
identifier {current}
device partition=C:
path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
description Windows 7
locale en-US
inherit {bootloadersettings}
recoverysequence {e8e6ee5a-70f7-11de-b5a8-9b0b4123e794}
recoveryenabled Yes
osdevice partition=C:
systemroot \Windows
resumeobject {e8e6ee58-70f7-11de-b5a8-9b0b4123e794}
nx OptIn


But I do not really understand what that Harddiskvolume1 is, if that's where the bootmgr is supposed to be. I was wondering if it had gone to my flash drive, but nope. not there either.

Any help?

Even more interesting, I think I might know where the bootmgr is, because I have 200bg HD plugged into my comp, and disk manager shows it, but when I open my computer, I can't get to it. It doesn't even show in there.

Nevermind, now I got access to the HD that wasn't available, but doesn't help....

You have a bogus copy of Windows 7, version "6.1.7600". Windows 7 RC is build 7100 -- there is nothing newer available from Microsoft.
