BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to restart

And then do what? I ordered the recovery cd's and put in setup disk 1. It said it was to clean HDD  and to please wait. After that it said to take out cd and reboot. That is when I got the Bootmgr is missing error  message.They sent me 4 cd's 2 for set up if needed and 2 with the programs that came with the PC. The PC is a Acer Desktop AM1640-U1401A.. Original OS is Vista. I just don't what to do from here. As anyone had to do this before or know what to tell me to do? I would very much appreciate it.
Thanks

Hi bbbb2,

The "Bootmgr is missing" error can be caused by a lots of things. Bad Recovery discs, faulty CD-Reader, bad HDD drive, bad memory. You can try to do a Startup repair from the Vista CD recovery disc, if it loads the origin Vista windows installation. You can find some information on that, in How-To-Geek.

Try taking a look at that!

Best Regards

First of all, No I cant boot from the vista cd because I dont have it. I thought the recovery disk I orderred would have that on there with all originall programs that was on that models years ago when it was first purchased.
@DJ KeNny, your key word there was "IF" IT" loads the the original Vista Intallation.. From What I know about this recovery and it isn't much is I need to make some time and go to that lhat link and see if I can learn something.
Thanks and pleae keep the advise coming. It is getting very late and I need to get some sleep. I will check back in the morning, God willing and theh creek don't rise.
Good Night

So Acer support team did send you Recovery CDs. Are these CDs marked somehow? Like disk 1, disk 2, backup, image etc?

To fix the problem:

1. Insert the OS CD
2. Select Boot From CD (you might have to press F1-F12, one of the F's will bring up your boot sequence manager), when you find it,        
    choose CD/DVD as the boot from choices.
3. Press any key when prompted to boot from CD
3. Select your language from the Installation CD
4. Press R after choosing your language to bring up the repair screen
5. Select Command Prompt from the menu
5. Type: "bootsect /nt60 C:\" without the quotes
6. Type: exit and restart the computer. You should be good to go now.

When replying to noxcho and looking at the cd's I read the 3rd disk wrong and the 1st and 2nd are the same but must go in a different order and that got me thinking that I put the wrong cd in first.
Thanks for shaking my brain noxcho

Thank you for feedback. Using wrong CD is a common error when you get the recovery environment on several CDs.
