Computers are extremely private and filled with personal documents. So it is better to solve problems by ourselves rather than send them to a shop to avoid privacy exposure. BootMGR is a bootloader that allows multiple operating systems to be booted from the same computer. So, missing BootMGR or corrupt BootMGR file can affect startup of the computer. If you receive the error message and Windows fails to start, these issues are mostly caused by the corrupt bootMGR image. To fix the "BootMGR image is corrupt" error, you need to find your Windows installation disc and follow the instructions below. In this article, we will discuss what to do when your bootMGR image corrupt. There are two essential solutions you can consider: fix the corrupt bootMGR image with Windows installation disc or with bootable CD/USB.
Note: If you meet some failure issues while you insert system disk, check our article to find how to fix disk boot failure. If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
If you don't have a Windows disk and don't want to spend money to buy one, or if it didn’t fix the problem, you can use a third-party program to help boot your system and repair it, such as Wondershare LiveBoot. This program solves BootMGR problems and other problems that make your computer fail to boot up into Windows. It can start systems from CD, DVD and USB drive (This is very important. When the computer cannot boot up, the program installed on the computer can do nothing to help).
Besides Windows Recovery, this program also provides Data Recovery, Disk Management, Password Recovery, and Network Connection for users to search for information online. The point has to be kept in mind is that all the data you recovered or created under this WinPE environment are not suggested to store on the X drive (Boot drive). You can store data on other hard drives in the computer or external hard drives connected to the computer.
The BootMGR Image corrupt problem might come along with data loss on your hard drive. It also help some files or data recovery on your pc like deleted folders recovery or formatted partition recovery during the process of fixing this issue.
