Hi guys and gals.

I need help! Bigtime!

So the situation. My mother was given a laptop ( by her father before he past away.

She called me over one evening to have a look at the computer because it kept crashing, to my horror I found it was the dreaded BSOD. I came home to Google it and try and find a solution. however, during this time my adorable (trust me he's not really!) brother decided to try to boot the machine from my old win7 32 bit home premium upgrade disk only to find that after the machine had wiped the existing os then the BSOD reappeared half way through.

So I'm now left with the laptop that says BOOTMGR is missing as soon as I power it up.

Desperately yours!
Olly

you can try using the recovery partition that's on the hard drive...
if that doesn't work
your going to have to go to the manufactures website and buy the recovery disks about $25.00

Yeah I've tried the recovery partition on it but it's come up with an error code of 0xe0ef0003

Any suggestions or ideas would be mega helpful!
