Compaq 6510b bootmgr is missing



I have the folowing problem. At startup I get the message that the bootmgr is missing. I boot from my Vista dvd and select repair. Windows was unable to find any operating system. I downloaded the drivers for my Sata controller, but nothing found. Also did I set the Sata Native disabled in the bios.


Who can deliver me the correct driver?? I tried several drives, but none won't work.


thank you

Hi, Bart:


Since you already tried the most likely way to fix the issue without success, try the second method (Solution 2) listed in this article:


Your Vista disk should see the HDD. No need to disable SATA Native Mode with Vista or Windows 7 DVD's.
