    Hi. I have recently had a problem. I turned my hp mini on and all of sudden it's saying BOOTMGR IS MISSING . I have tried to recover but it won't let me. It will not even let me boot from the usb. It says it's there but it won't boot. Then it also tells me that the media is missing that in need to fix the cord but it still won't let me do anything . I need advice. HP is telling me I have to pay to get fixed and it's completly outragious for the price. Any help?

    On some machines, you have to go into BIOS and change the boot order - choosing the USB to boot first.

    Your internal hd sounds like it is gone or lost the boot information.
    What do you have attached via USB that you are trying to boot from?
