Is "BOOTMGR missing" normal after format?

I bought a notebook with no OS, put windows 7 on it and then decided I didnt like the machine and that I'm going to return it. So I used the bootdisc to first delete the 100mb hidden partition and then using command from the repair options formated C: . Now, when I turn on the computer (without boot disc), all it displays that BOOTMGR is missing. When I boot it with the disc, I can access Windows 7 setup just fine.
Is that how it's supposed to be or do i have to do something else before returning it? (There were no personal files on that harddrive.)
Input would be welcome!

if it is formatted that is perfectly correct, when you boot from disk you are using the dvd's boot manager.
