Posted by: Fiction May 23 2009, 07:51 PM

Hi Im sorry for needing help and this might just be a simple fix but im lost on what to do to fix this.

First off i have 2 PC's. One is all new. New parts new everything other is a p4 running windows xp

I have dl 2 versions on linux and on the older pc i can do an install with no problems on both versions can boot from cd with no issues.

New pc it just says bootmgr is missing.

Ive been able to put windows vista 64 bit in new pc and it trys to install just fine and even windows xp. Both are iso's ive copy'ed so there all burned disk'

I just dont know why windows will instal fine on both pcs and linux will install on older pc but not newer one.

Thanks biggrin.gif

What 2 distributions / versions are you trying to install? If it is an older version it may not have the current drivers to run on a newer PC.


bootmgr is missing I believe is a windows problem.
