CDBOOT: couldn't find bootmgr.exe
Posted on 2009-07-14
I have a system backup from computer "A" on an external USB drive.
I boot system "B" from the Windows 2008 installation DVD in order to do a full system restore
Cannot boot. I am prompted to boot from CD so I know that part works, then a split second later I get the error "CDBOOT: couldn't find bootmgr.exe" and that pretty much is where I'm stuck.
Surprisingly, I haven't been able to find any other examples of this happening to someone with Server 2008.
Anybody have any ideas?
