The problem here isn't with Partmgr.sys, but with the file that loads right after it. Without being able to start the machine, we can't really find out what that one is. Our options are very limited.
Try Recovery Console first.
Boot to the cd. At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press R to load Recovery Console. You should get a screen that lists your Windows installation (1: C:\WINDOWS)...press 1. You'll be prompted for the Admin password...this is blank by default, just press Enter. You should end up at a command prompt (C:\WINDOWS>)
At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r and press Enter. At this point, either the check will start or you will be told the drive is in use and asked if you want to schedule this to run on the next boot. If it's the latter, type Y and press Enter.
Reboot. This is a long check...be patient. 60 to 90 minutes is not unreasonable. It may even appear to hang or back up...this is normal, let it finish.
Let me know if you are able to complete this and if it boot to Windows once it's done.

Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.
If this doesn't work, we have one good and one not-so-good option left.
