Bootmgr is missing is the common reasons for windows won't start. There are few ways that the "BOOTMGR is missing" error may show up on your computer, with the first error I have listed being the most common:
* "BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl Alt Del to restart"

* "Couldn't find BOOTMGR"
The "BOOTMGR is missing" error displays shortly after the computer is turned on, immediately after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows has only initially started to load when the BOOTMGR error message appears.
