Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I turned on my laptop and got the "Bootmgr is missing'' message. My laptop didn't come with a Window Vista Installation CD to repair it so I burned one. After getting it to boot up from the DVD drive, I clicked ''repair your computer''. But nothing shows up as the operating system and I couldn't find it when browsing through the hard disk and hard drives. Please help!


Answers :

I read up that on vista supplied pc's part of the harddrive is partitioned and stores a copy of vista for backup or restoring your copy only so look there.If you cant find it try ebay for a genuine vista disc and use your product key on your laptop.The vista cd is £15 on ebay u.k.
