System stops boot process with black screen and displays a missing or corrupt error message for Winload.exe or Bootmgr.exe

Symptom

The system stops the boot process on Windows Vista and displays one of these two error messages on a black screen:
1. Winload.exe missing or corrupt.
2.
Bootmgr.exe missing or corrupt.

Note: OneKey Recovery might not be able to restore the system.

 

Affected configurations

The above symptom may occur on the following system:

  • Lenovo 3000 K100, H210
  • IdeaCenre K200, K210, K220, K230, A600

     

    Solution

    Running Restore Factory Backup or Restore Original Backup from OneKey Recovery might not be enough to restore the system.
    Boot the system to the Lenovo Product Recovery DVD to delete the current partition(s) on the hard drive, this drive is referred to as Disk 0. Then restore and format the partition(s) on Disk 0 and use OneKey Recovery to restore the system. Follow the instructions provided on Recovery Process, below.
    Note:
    When restoring the partition(s) on your hard drive, make sure to keep the exact number of partition(s) and their original size; otherwise OneKey Recovery would fail to restore the system. Instructions to comply with this requirement are provided under "Recovery Process".
    Make sure to Backup before you proceed with the recovery process.
