Re: Mint Cinnamon startup problem: Cinamon-session-cinamon X session not found

Try these commands..
try this first..
sudo dhclient
that assumes you are on a wire then do this:
sudo apt install network-manager
then try the following:
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
reboot
see what happens then.

Here is a link to the same problem. Looks like a bug. https://askubuntu.com/questions/1007443/failed-to-send-...

Re: BOOTMGR is missing

Hitting Ctrl+Alt+Del will get you back to the dos prompt, but it will not get you to the administrator prompt which is what you will need to be in to copy bootmgr back to the root. You could try...
