"BOOTMGR is Missing" but no disc.

My dad was reading an email when the screen froze.
 He proceeded to shut down and when he turned it back on, "BOOTMGR is missing" came up.
 He says that it was XP but he doesn't have the original boot disc.
 Can someone help?

Solutions to the Problem "BOOTMGR is Missing" but no disc.


Hi, Astrombe,
 
Method 4: Use Startup Repair on a computer that has a preinstalled recovery option on your computer
Important: This method is only available if Startup Repair is a preinstalled recovery option on your computer:

If you do not have a Windows 7 or Windows Vista disk, and Startup Repair is a preinstalled recovery option on your computer, follow these steps to repair startup files:

Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer using the computer's power button.

- If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the
F8 key as your computer restarts.
You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears.
If the Windows logo appears, you need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

-If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold
F8.
On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight
Repair your computer, and then press Enter.
(If Repair your computer isn't listed as an option, then your computer doesn't include preinstalled recovery options, or your network administrator has turned them off.)Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.Select a user name and enter the password and click OK.On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair.
Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem and, if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.
