Missing Bootmgr file on Windows 7 Ultimate

I am unable to load my operating system (Windows 7 Ultimate) because of a missing boot file. I don't have a CD for Windows 7 Ultimate but I do have one for Windows 7 Professional  (64 bit). Would I be able to get to System Repair by booting from the CD? Also, would I loose any data? I foolishly didn't create a Recovery CD or back my data up. It's embarrassing to admit that.

You need to get into the repair console.
Bootrec is the tool to use:

There is one option that I can not think of that has the language option.
Bcdedit might be the one to choose/set the language

Make sure you have /boot with multiple folders on the first/windows 7 drive.

Did this begin after a drive was removed?
