    I shut down my computer one night, and the next day it says BOOTMRG is missing. I have my Win XP CD so I can do the recovery thing. I don't know what command to use. It says stuff like fix, create, edit, etc. If anyone could tell me how to fix this I'd appreciate it. I'm somewhat lost, I just don't want to erase all of my old data.

    If I get the full list of commands can someone please help? I have a lot of information on the hard drive that I really would like to keep. I wouldn't be able to have it hooked up and check it until tomorrow, but I would appreciate any help whatsoever. Thanks in advance.

    Sorry... I don't know who the mods are, but can someone help and let them know so they can move it. The computer I was using was slow, so it lagged and it looked like I clicked windows general, and I guess I didn't, and from there I never checked. My bad. VERY sorry. Will not make the same mistake again.

    Upon boot it reads:

    BOOTMGR is missing
    Press any key to reset

    I incert the Windows XP Professional Upgrade CD. I pressed the space bar to reboot the computer. Then I boot to CD.

    It says:

    * To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER

    * To repair a Windows XP Installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    * To quit setup without installing Windows XP, press F3

    I pressed "R"

    Microsoft Windows XP (TM) Recovery Console

    The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality.

    Type EXIT to equit the Recovery Console and restart the computer.

    1: C:\Windows

    Which Windows installation would you like to log onto <To cancel, press ENTER>?

    I typed "1" and pressed enter, and the entered the admin password.

    C:\Windows>

    I Typed in Help C:\Windows>Help

    For more information on a specific command, type command-name /? or Help command-name

    The following is the list of commands:

    ATTRIB, BATCH, BOOTCFG, CD, CHDIR, CHKDSK, CCS, SOPY, DEL, DELETE, DIR, DISABLE, DISKPART, ENABLE, EXIT, EXPAND, FIXBOOT, FIXMBR, FORMAT, HELP, LISTSVC, LOGON, MAP, MD, MKDIR, MORE, NET, RD, REN, RENAME, RMDIR, SYSTEMROOT, TYPE

    C:\Windows>BootCFG

    /add /List
    /Rebuild /DisablerDirect
    /Scan /Redirect[PortBaudrate]|[useBiosSettings]

    Can anyone tell me what to do. I don't know how to fix this. I figured since it said BOOTMGR is missing, that it might have to do with the configuration, but...

    Any help whatsoever would be greatly appreciated.
