    Hi, I had to restore my laptop, Toshiba L305 S5933, from Norton Ghost 15. When I did this I got an error saying that the Bootmgr is missing. This is despite the fact I told Norton Ghost to restore the master mbr. I've done this twice and both times I have gotten the same error. I have used the information on this screen:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392

    and this screen:

    http://www.osopinion.com/f17/how-resolve-%93bootmgr-missing-windows-7-a-344/

    and this screen:

    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/20864-mbr-restore-windows-7-master-boot-record.html

    One of the problems is that the command prompt I am getting is different from the command prompt they are showing me. My command prompt says :

    X:\Sources>

    How do I get my bootmgr back?

    I have been dealing with a similar issue all day.

    Have you tried " x:\ " (without quotes) to get to the main x: drive?

    X: should be where the Startup Repair console is. In my situation (just facts, not trying to hijack thread)

    C: System Reserved
    D: (where the C: has been relocated to)
    E: (where the D: CDROM has been relocated to)
    X: Startup Repair

    Didn't look at the middle link, but either the Microsoft or Sevenforums one should lead to a solution (I think).

    The command prompt shows the folder in which you currently reside--in your example above you are in the Sources folder on what Microsoft is calling the "X drive."

    To get to a different folder on the same drive use cd (Change Directory [directory is the real term for what Microsoft calls folder]). cd abc would get you to the X:\Sources\abc folder. cd .. goes "up" a level; beginning at x:\Sources then cd .. would put you at X:\.

    If you need to get to a different "drive" just type the "drive" letter and a colon. E: would put you at E:\ for example.

    Here are some examples (I have put my typing in red for clarity):

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
    Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\Users\Terry>e:

    E:\>c:

    C:\Users\Terry>cd Desktop

    C:\Users\Terry\Desktop>

    Hi Gang,

    This morning, while waiting for replies I re-formated, chkdisked and reinstalled the backup. While it didn't correct the problem when I prompted Windows 7 to fix my startup problem it did. Now I can boot perfectly. Thanks very much for all who helped. It appeared I had a chkdsk problem.
