    Guys, bought Wife an Advent 4211 last September, today she boots it up and it dies...Back screen and the message:

    Boot MGR is missing
    Press any key to restart

    After pressing a key it just repeats the same message. Took it back to PC World and they tell me a should have created a USB recovery stick from a partition on the drive, she wasn't told this at time of purchase and wasn't prompted to do so when first booted up. They can evidentially sell her a recovery CD that she will have to transfer to a 2GB memory stick to try and recover the system. This will cost about £45. But I have read that because if the error this may not even work so loathed to shell out £45 just to find it doesn't work. I'm not PC savvy at all :) so a bit clueless to what to do. Any suggestions?

    Cheers

    Dave
