Hi & thanks in advance for your help7

not to sure what topic i should be posting this in.

My Son has a ZOOSTORM FREEDOM NETBOOK when you try to load the comp up it says BOOTMGR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

His netbook dosn't have a cd-drive so im unable to use that but I do have a usb and a working laptop that I can use to transfer anythin you might suggest thanks Cherie

You usually would use the XP cd to boot and go into the recovery console to rebuild the BOOTMGR by using the command line FIXBOOT

here is a link on how to create a bootable USB device

If that works and you are able to boot from it then at the first screen select R to repair, select your operating system that you want to repair (if only one choose 1 and press enter) you then need to enter the "fixboot" command, then if prompted for confirmation type in Y and press enter.

Once finish reboot and hopefully your BOOTMGR should be ok and you will be able to boot into windows.

Hope that helps
