Hello HOW-TO Geeks,
i am new here, but experienced with computers. Yesterday a fried asked me if I can test on his PC if I can install Mac OS X Snow Leopard. He had a free partition so I used a legal SL Disk to format and install it there. However I figured out SL wont work on his system so I decided to uninstall it. I noticed that when I boot up his PC SL would automaticlly load, whitout giving me an option to start the pre-installed Windows 7 Ultimate. I tought removing/erasing the disk where SL was installed would solve the startup problem. However after erasing and restarting Windows gives me the error as in the title : "BOOTMGR is missing! Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart".
Tried with the original Windows 7 DVD to Startup repair - Doesent reconize any problems.
Tried with the original Windows 7 DVD and CMD to Bootrec/Fixboot - It wont show up BOOTMGR is missing anymore but it wont load either!!
Tried again with the original Windows 7 DVD to Startup repair getting a messege the "Installed Windows 7 is not compatible with the Startup repair".
What am i able to do? WITHOUT, so pleas WITHOUT, deleting C: Partition and reinstalling Windows, because on the C: Partition there is many important data!
Best Regards Richard
