Bootmgr missing on server 2008 R2
Posted on 2011-03-01
recently, one of our developers told me that a test server of ours was no longer working. When I tried booting, it would say 'Bootmgr is missing'. So, I inserted the server 2008 disk in and got to the repair option and selected the command prompt option.
From there, I typed bootrec /rebuildbcd and it was successful but I did notice that it came up with two records.
I typed: bootrec /enum all and noticed that it came up with two GUID identifiers; one for a C:\windows and one for C:\windows.old! I only installed one version, but it seems of course that somebody may have been messing around with things they shouldn't have.
So could this problem be occuring because we have two installations of windows? I believe the .old version is the one that was working correctly.
How can I have the .old version be the one that boots first and not the other one? That possible?
