I selected partition 3 and I get the same BOOTMGR missing message. Partition 2 didn't work either.

Thanks.

OK lets now rebuild the BCD

Start from the recovery CD and select command prompt as before
Then type in the following commands pressing enter after each line

bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
c:
cd boot
attrib bcd -s -h -r
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec /RebuildBcd


Then retry the start

I tried the above and am still stuck in the same situation as before. The first time it just went back to BOOTMGR missing and then I repeated everything again and it went to the system repair menu.

When I ran startup repair it says "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically."

When I select to view the details it says "startup repair offline." Problem Signature 7 says "Corrupt Registry"

I'm not sure if those are pertinent details.

As this was a recovery install the problem may be with the hard drive, so lets do the following, after each sequence try a boot to normal windows

Going to command prompt on the CD

First run a chkdisck by doing the following :

C:
CHKDSK /R


Then we will scan the files as below:

sfc /scannow

Finally reconfigure the BCD if we need to :

Bcdboot C:\windows

BOOTREC /FIXMBR

BOOTREC /FIXBOOT

BOOTREC /REBUILDBCD

BOOTREC /SCANOS


If any error appear, please let us know.
