"Error: 10-FC10-045D
Recovery Error."

Yes, that's what I've been getting at. When it asks to repair an operating system, nothing appears in the list.

Check the cable and wiring of your hard disk drive. In my experience whenever windows wont boot sometimes il slave my corrupted HDD to other working CPU then let the working CPU checks and repair the booting process.

Are your important files also in that partition? You will loose them all if they are not in other drive. Try this one. Run your Windows CD/DVD.

Choose Command Prompt, then

Type BOOTREC /FIXMBR (the capitals are for clarity only) and press Enter

Type BOOTREC /FIXBOOT (the capitals are for clarity only) and press Enter.

Your files are gone because you didn't have a backup. What were you thinking?

Ok, just to reiterate my problem.

I'm getting the black screen when I stat my brother's computer. It says "BOOTMGR is missing." I have tried to the recovery wizard that came with the computer, but it said it had an error, "Error: 10-FC10-045D Recovery Error." When I try to recover, the list that says to select an operating system to repair. However, nothing appears on the list. No operating systems repairs.
I have tried bootrec with /fixboot, /fixmbr, and/rebuildbcd. Nothing seems to be working.

What should I do? Should I reformat my entire computer? How do I do that?

My brother just wants a working computer right now, he doesn't care if all the files get deleted.
