    Bootmgr missing whileinstalling windows with USB


    Hi guys I am having trouble with installing windows 7 using a USB stick. To create win7 bootable drive I have followed Create Bootable USB Flash Drive for Windows 7 or Vista Netbook Install - YouTube .
    Now when I insert my usb and set bios to boot from usb I get the BOOTMGR is missing error. I have attached the snapshot of the same.
    This error does not come when I try to boot from cd drive (however that approach is giving some other issues ).
    Can someone please help me with this issue.
