Solved BOOT MGR missing on the right side. can't boot up the comput

July 29, 2013 at 16:42:34
Specs: Linux i686
This has a left side I'm on which is The Exspress. The right side is saying that the BOOTMGR is missing. I guess this is a Linux? The stickers on the computer say windows 7. Intel core duo. The left side that I'm on can do internet, music, on line games, photos, chat & Skype. I can't download on this side I'm on. There's no Start up like regular windows has.

OK, I think I finally know what you're talking about. It would have helped to post the make/model of your system right from the start. Apparently you have an Asus laptop? Is it one of the models on this list?

http://www.splashtop.com/content/as...

So if I understand correctly, there's a normal power button to turn on the laptop, then several "quick launch" buttons to the left of it, one of them being Express Gate. Pressing the Express Gate key launches SlashDot Linux. But if no keys are pressed (other than the power button), the system is supposed to boot into Windows. Is that about right? Do you have a Windows 7 DVD, a repair disc, or the Asus Recovery discs so that you can either repair or reinstall Windows? If not, you should be able to use Linux to copy your important files from Windows onto a USB flash drive, then do a factory reset from the recovery partition.

I was told it's configured wrong. I know that f2 has that in it. My daughters friend fixed it then put it back because I wanted my computer back because he wouldn't let me pick it up. It was me thinking he was stealing it but he wouldn't let me pick it up. Threatened me with police. He fixed it but how?

Darcyzimmer, what on earth are you talking about? I'm even more confused about your last post than I was your first.

And please stick to specifics about your computer, your ranting about someone calling the police or not letting you pick it up has nothing to do with repairing your computer.

No problem. THX 1138. I guess No one understands I'm on the Express Gate the left start up button. Which is not windows. The question is how do I configure this thing? How do I get the BOOTMGR back? Can anyone answer that?

Looks like I have to buy a CD to fix this. I just need to know how to configure it. It will help. But looks like I have to pay someone to fix this thing. Ty everyone for your help.

Thanks for feedback. Sorry to hear that you are having to shell out money to fix this but it seems not many folk around these parts have used Express Gate.

I did find this - might be of interest:

I have Express Gate on my Asus board but I have it disabled. Still, this whole left side-right side stuff makes no sense.

riider the Express Gate open button is on the top left of the computer. The regular start button is on the top right both are not on the key board. That is what I have. Thank you for your help.

what i can try is to download to a cd from another computer. the express gate will only save it to a flash drive. I need a cd to put it in and start the computer from the right start button. Thank You everyone for your help. I wil let you all know how it goes. Thanks again.
