Copy boot info to fix bootmgr missing error?

Hi

Since upgrading from Acronis True Image 2010 to Acronis workstation backup and recovery (proper uninstall and reinstallation) I have been suffering from BSOD's when booting up. Windows 7 x64
The first time after having no luck with bootrec and bcdedit I managed to get it running again using system restore but now its happening again.
I'm running the automatic startup repair and also doing it manually, sometimes it tells me that problems have been fixed and to reboot, sometimes it doesn't, each time I reboot I get bootmgr is missing.
I have another Windows 7 installation on an identical hard rive which boots up fine, Can I copy any of the info over from this working one to repair to non working one?

thanks

S.

Try this from the recovery environment on installation DVD:

BCDBOOT c:\windows

BOOTSECT /nt60 c:

BOOTREC /fixboot

It suggests that the system is looking for the BOOTMGR on your install DVD. With Win7 running, open an elevated Command Prompt (run as administrator). Run "bcdedit" and copy the output to this thread. To copy from Command Prompt, right-click in the window, choose Select All, then press Enter and the text will be in the clipboard.

If I boot from the DVD and run bcdedit from theb Command Prompt I get -

I've used this solution for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, which worked for me each time:

Nice, not seen that one before. I had already re-installed, but now I'm going to image my non working installation back and give it a go
