BOOTMGR issues in Windows® 7
In computing, booting is a bootstrapping process that starts your Windows 7 Operating System as you turn on the computer. The boot sequence is the initial set of operations that the system performs as the power is switched on. As your computer is powered on, it does not have Windows 7 files in the ROM or RAM. Your system must initially execute a small program stored in ROM along with the bare minimum of data needed to access the nonvolatile devices from which the Windows 7 programs and data are loaded into RAM. The boot loader helps in loading the main Operating System for the computer. This small program is most often not itself an operating system, but only a second-stage boot loader, like the BOOTMGR. It helps to load the Windows 7 properly, and finally transfers execution to it. The Windows 7 will initialize itself, and may load the device drivers that are needed for the normal operation of the OS. After that your computer starts loading the normal system programs.
The problems that come up with Windows 7 BOOTMGR and the different ways to resolve them are:
- BOOTMGR missing
- BOOTMGR corruption issues
- Fixing the issues
You may face a BOOTMGR missing error in your computer. Your computer screen may display the "BOOTMGR is missing" error shortly after the computer is turned on, immediately after the Power On Self Test is complete. The Windows 7 is only partially loaded when the BOOTMGR error message appears.
BOOTMGR corruption issues
You may face a BOOTMGR corruption error in your computer. The most common problem for BOOTMGR corruption errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and Operating System upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.
You can try restarting your computer to check if the error is a genuine one or it is fake. You can perform a start up repair of the Windows 7. This kind of installation will replace all the missing and corrupt files, including the BOOTMGR. You can check your floppy and optical drives for media. The "BOOTMGR is Missing" error will appear if your computer is trying to boot to a non-bootable floppy disk or CD/ DVD. You should then reset all the power cables, and update your motherboard BIOS.
