    Default BOOTMGR Missing

    Just starting to install Win 7 64 bit O/S. It got to the "Expanding Windows files" screen and crapped out with a blue screen. Told me to try restaring. Now I get BOOTMGR is missing. Can't get by it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Default BOOTMGR MIssing

    I started from the beginning, and everything worked as it should have. Don't know what the problem was. I now have Win 7 installed! I was warned that a file called WINDOWSOLD would be created. I assume I can delete this.

    That's a windows.old file that you probably should keep for a while. If it's not hogging up too much hard drive space, just leave it be for a couple of months.
