Hello,
I recently bought a new Seagate 500gb bare drive, but when I tried to install Windows 7 with a disk, I received an error message stating that all the necessary files were not on the disc. Now, upon restart, I get a BOOTMGR is missing, and don't know what to do, because I don't have any USB drivers to work my keyboard.

Could some of the files on the copy be fragmented, causing the installation problem? But would that also cause the BootMgr error?

I don't at the moment, but I can very soon. Thanks a bunch. This will solve the BootMgr Error, right?

I would hope so, but do a 'clean install', when you get to the screen 'Where do you want to install Windows' choose 'Drive Options (Advanced)' and format your drive before installing.
