boot onto the Install CD and choose recovery options.

make sure you have a good backup. before choosing to repair. if you possibly can.

I do not have install cd , because the system came installed with windows 7 home premuim , and I folloewd an advice from one of the expert by going into the registry and delete the sid , since I was having the user profile service failed to logon , user profile can not be loaded , so I went to registry as told and when I delete the sid under hklocal machine - windows- microsoft -winnt .....run  , after that I managed to gt into system fine , then done all update also fine , but it asked to shut down and when system re-booted I kept getting bootmge is missing press ...? ? so what should I do ?

most systems that don't have CDs have a recovery mode option something like F12, or F10, or Ctrl+Esc
a simple web search on the brand should give you the recovery sequence.

if the system recovery doesn't work your going to need a recovery CD from compaq
or a windows 7 CD I can't think of any reasonable way to fix it without an installation CD might try a copy of Windows ultimate Boot CD.

if you can get to the recovery option on a windows 7 CD i "think" it'll fix the boot record and so on regardless of the version. I however am not sure if that'll fix your problem, it's worth a try.

I am following what Nobus said in his link to make a recovery cd , its downloading now , I am hoping this will fix it , more than 50 % so far , I am going to burn the download using iso software and boot from it and hopefully that fix the problem , by the way I just installed the M torrent , when files are downloaded where does it go by default , and is it bad to use M torrent ? I mean is my hard drive shared with others ?

if you have completely re-installed windows and are still getting the bootmgr error it is most likely a bad harddrive. if you have warranty left one it, call and get a new hard drive.

No now everything is working gr8 after a fresh re-installing , it seems there were no OS on the hard drive for some reason !! is it because I deleted the sid in the registry under hk-local mashine -microsoft -windows -softwate-nt -run and then under run I deleted sid entry .........but I done that because someone on the site mentioned this will solve the problem , but anyway Its sorted now , not sure how to ditribute the marks though ??
