ERROR: BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart, shows up when starting Windows.
Those symptoms may indicate that your hard drive has failed. So you need to first test the drive to determine if it is working or not.
To test your hard drive using your Dell Drivers and Utilities disc:
1. Reboot your system. When you see the Dell logo, hit F12 to enter the boot menu.
2. Insert the Dell Drivers and Utilities disc in your CD/DVD drive.
3. Pick the option to boot from the CD/DVD drive.
4. You will be prompted to hit any key to continue booting from the CD/DVD drive.
5. You will be prompted to hit 1 to run the Dell diagnostics. You may see two such menus.
6. Select Test System.
7. Select Custom Test.
7. Use the arrow keys or mouse to select your hard drive.
9. Click Run Tests.
10. Write down any error messages.
I tried this method described above, but instead of what is mentioned in step number 4, "You will be prompted to hit any key to continue booting from the CD/DVD drive", it show again "BOOTMGR IS MISSING, PRESS ALT+CTRL+DEL to restart". It doesn't boots from the Disc.
I tried running the same disc in some other computer to check if the disc is readable or is it also damaged, but the disc runs smoothly, showing that the disc is fine.
Secondly, i tried running Dell ePSA (Pre-boot System Assessment), It showed no errors.
When i selected "start-up repair", it showed a message stating, "Start-up repair cannot repair the system automatically", with two options
one was "Send info about this problem to microsoft", other was "dont send". When i selected the former option, It showed me details of the diagnosis.
The diagnosis result contained information about the tests performed and their result. All the tests completed successfully. But at the end, it was written "ROOT CAUSE FOUND :
System volume on disk is corrupt
Repair action : File system repair (chkdsk)
Result : Failed "
Now what can i do to repair the system volume?
