My daughter booted up her laptop after not using it for 2 years and was immediately hit with the 'bootmgr missing' error.
Normally i would try to repair it with the installation disc but it's not working.
Then i would attach my external dvd, change boot in bios and install windows from there, but not working.
Lastly i would try to install windows from a USB but this is also not working.
When connected the USB and external drive are not recognised in bios, which i have never come across before.
Stupid question but i am going to remove the hard drive, connect it to my pc, install windows on it, then put it back in the laptop.
Will this work? Or can anyone suggest something else to try?
Any help appreciated.
