Some more info would help. Do you see any messages before bootmgr is missing?
If you hit F8 a few times during startup, can you get to a menu?
What version of Windows is it running (2003, 2008, 2008 R2)?
Does the server have a RAID array, or just one hard drive?

@laserspot:
This can only be win2k8 since this is built on the Vista Pkernal or Win2k8 R2 which is built on the Windows 7 kernal.
Use the original CD and perform a repair. If not successful you may have to use one of the utilities like bootrec.

Type bootrec /rebuildbcd and then press ENTER

• If Bootrec runs successfully, it will present you with the installation path of a Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type Yes . A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.

• If Bootrec cannot locate any missing Windows installations, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it. To do this, type the following commands in the order shown below: (Remember to press ENTER after each command)

bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

bootrec /rebuildbcd

- Restart the computer.

Your right, it must be 2008

Here's the same thing HRL said, but another repair option is also mentioned: http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/240169-How-to-fix-Windows-Server-2008-R2-bootloader

You could have a failing hard drive; run hardware diagnostics if software fixes don't work.

Two things to check before you go crazy on this:

Make sure you don't have a floppy drive with a floppy disk in there
Make sure you don't have a CD in the cdrom drive

in the bios, select the primary boot device

if you have a raid controller card, make sure the hard drive booting up is the one with the OS on it.

If you have a raid controller with disk mirroring, check the disk mirror.
