I've got an Asus Eee PC with Windows 7 starter pre-installed on it. Now, I don't have anything attached to it, no CD/USB Stick/Cables. However, I still get this error:

BOOTMGR is missing

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

Since I do not have the USB stick with the windows 7 starter OS and don't want to switch this computer to ubuntu as it is not for me, I can't follow the instructions in this tutorial.

You will likely want to try Super Grub. You can boot from it the same way you would install ubuntu. If you have no external capabilities, you will likely have difficulty fixing this issue.
