[Help] Bootmgr

I formatted my harddrive through Vista, except when I try to reinstall Windows XP Pro I get "Bootmgr is missing". I have downloaded around 20 iso's trying to fix this too. I booted my system up through a Slax Linux DVD which worked fine except I just look at my harddrive under it... Its is COMPLETELY formatted.

I would either need someone to upload Bootmgr from your primary harddrive or someone could give me well nvm just bootmgr so thx in advance

I'm guessing that it matters whether its 32bit or 64bit.

I'll be willing as long as we have roughly the same OS.

And why did you leave Vista?

Holy ****!

I found all the backup files and it is well over 3GB.

Sorry mate can't help.

Try sticking it into another PC and reformatting it and then installing WinXP.

Have you considered formatting it through the XP Setup? Just delete the old partition and start again.
