BOOTMGR is corrupt, even after 3 HDD swaps. FIXED

I'm trying to get a computer in our lab working, but even after 3 HDD's and 4 ghosts, the "BOOTMGR is corrupt" message shows up. Is there anything else that could cause the BOOTMGR to go corrupt?

Fixed: I swapped the motherboard and the machine booted up fine. I suspect it was a BIOS problem. Thanks for the help, all.

    If I understand your problem correctly, you are trying to restore a disk image made by Norton Ghost, but when you are done restoring the disk image and try to boot the restored computer you are getting the error message that "BOOTMGR is Corrupt? Have I got that right?

    You didn't say which OS you are working with. Here is one solution for Windows 7: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-system/windows-7-bootmgr-is-missing-resolved-using-winre/8bb148bc-8035-4847-9696-888f7a0a9720

    Good luck!

  5. What's the OS? You could try booting into the recovery console and using the fix mbr command. or the fix boot command.
    Or you could try this webpage if you're using win 7, 8 or vista
