"Bootmgr is missing", boot from USB, no luck!
First post: Plea to the masses. I understand. I bow to the collective knowledge here. I've read so many threads without finding a similar problem. Thanks!
The short of it: A newly-installed UNE 10.10 was behaving strangely, I tried to access Windows 7 (previously installed, and I used Wubi to install Ubuntu) to repair and reinstall UNE, and the computer left me with "bootmgr is missing" message and the option to restart. That's it. A black screen and that's it. I don't have a CD/DVD drive, so I need to install from a live USB. I have two live USB's with UNE 10.10 on each, looking fine, but the boot does not respond to either.
For background info: I tried installing UNE from USB before all this, but with no luck, so I used Wubi out of desperation. I'm assuming it's some BIOS issue that wasn't addressed? I'm using a brand new ASUS eee PC 1001PX.
I'm a bit of a noob who wants to love Ubuntu on my new netbook, but it does little more than turn on now. All I want is Ubuntu on it, as I would have uninstalled Windows if I hadn't used Wubi. Is there a way to access BIOS or boot options? Should I expect a live USB to work-- try different distros or versions or something?
Thanks so much,
