I am getting this error "bootmgr is missing". did some research on google, the fix is easy, create a windows 7 recovery disk, it should fix that problem.

after created the recovery disk, I cannot boot using this recovery disk. my motherboard p8p67 pro is using UEFI. seems like its a known issue that recovery disk is useless if you are using UEFI.

I got stuck here. need help to boot from recovery disk, so I can fix the bootmgr is missing issue.

What happens when you change the boot order and enable Legacy Bios ( or some similar named feature ) mode? – Ramhound Feb 6 '14 at 1:59
i didn't know how to enable legacy bios. I went to uefi coudln't find any options let you do that. – qinking126 Feb 6 '14 at 2:01
Its in the CSM section. Where did you hear recovery disks are useless if you are using UEFI anyways? – Ramhound Feb 6 '14 at 2:14

I can't comment, so try this. Boot into BIOS and look for anything labeled Secure Boot or UEFI and disable it. Then you can choose your boot media or change the boot order.
