    So, is it just not starting, what are your errors?

    It does sound like a hard drive crash. I'm not sure what triggers them, but It's happened to me often. I touched my external hard drive and it shocked it and died.

    If your hard drive is on the floor, lift it off the floor with wooden or plastic blocks. You could've shocked it by walking across the carpet.
    OR, it could be bad, old or it could've been jolted around. It's known to happen and they are fragile. Get you a backup program and external hard drive. Have it automatically back your computer up in case it happens again. If you are using 500GB +, be careful. They crash more often is what my repair guy told me.

Hi their Rak,

Basically, never compress the entire c: drive, ie, don't just right click the c: drive choose properties then check the box that says Compress drive to save space - Really! DONT DO IT - EVER! Especially if running bootcamp.

If you compress the System Folder it will screw up your bootup in Bootcamp, or from Fusion or even Parallels Desktop. If you want to compress your drive (which is a good idea), be selective about it. Go into your c: drive and compress only your Docs&Settings folder and the ProgramFiles folder. Anything other than the Entire 'Windows' folder. If you want to compress any of the Windows folder, again be selective and do any folder other than the System and System32 folders. Leave all files in the root of the Windows folder uncompressed.

When it happened to me (yeah! That's how I know!! Oops) the only way I was able to rectify it was to create another windows boot file in Parallels and uncompress it from that. After that it worked fine. Hopefully others can benefit from my experience.

All the best to the best of you all

A file neccessary for windows to start properly is missing or corrupt. If you are able to get to the Windows boot selection menu by repeatedly pressing F8 you may be able to do a system restore to repair the system. If not, i would suggest finding your Windows CD/DVD and trying to boot off it by pressing F11 (if not, then Press F2 to change the order of your boot devices so that your CD/DVDROM will boot first) and running through the repair option.
If that does not work you will need to preform a full fresh install of Windows.

You might have to go to the BIOS of your computer to ensure your drive is recognised. Once it shows there, make sure you change the Drive as your first boot device.
