    Hello!
    So, I was using my laptop a few weeks ago without the charger and it died on me. When I went to turn it on the next day while it was plugged in I got this bootmgr error:

    I got a startup repair disk on eBay which enabled me to try the Startup Repair tool, SEVERAL times, and it didn't work. I've also tried the bootrec fix, the diskpart fix, and bcdedit via command prompt and none of them worked.
    (I'm including screencaps of those attempts)

    The only thing I can figure is that I'm completely missing the boot partition/volume…but Im not sure what to do.

    Also, Windows7 isn't listed on the System Recovery box that first pops up (http://i.imgur.com/pISIhFc.jpg) and system restore doesn't even work. (http://i.imgur.com/dVhsR6V.jpg)
    When I hit "load drivers" it lets me browse my system folder with a TON of system files and I have no idea what to select to load these drivers.


    Thank you for any help!!

    fyi, a lot of us are currently at work, and unable to view sites such as imgur. I know I cannot.

    thanks, and welcome to the forums.

    Thanks for the welcome. I'm currently stuck using the net on my phone in an area with crappy reception and my data limit is close to the limit, so I can't really reupload all those big pics to the website so I'll just wait for some responses later tonight when people get off work and can hopefully view imgur! <3

    First screen says:
    File:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD
    Status: 0xc000000d
    Info: The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information.

    I found a YouTube video that is supposed to show how to fix it but it never loaded for me.

    Thanks for the video post but I've tried that already too and it doesn't work =(

    I really think the issue is the missing boot partition...
    When I hit the load drivers button on the system recovery box I can view all my files and everything is still there...it's such a tease, and really makes me think if I could just get this boot file/volume/partition fix3d everything would run a-okay!

    You could try to contact lap top Mfg. and purchase recovery disks to get you going.May wipe all out to reinstall losing what you had on Lap top.
