Hii.. I tried compressing my C drive. And now when I start my computer I get a message saying 'BOOTMGR is compressed Press ctrl alt del to continue' and the same thing keeps happening again and again....

Hmm, you need the Windows Vista installation disc to fix this problem. Can you find a friend with one you can borrow? This Microsoft site tells you what to do if you have the disk:

If you for some strange reason have lost your Vista DVD, then you can also use a Windows 2000 / XP install CD and enter the recovery console instead and execute the following commands:
  • attrib -c c:\bootmgr
  • attrib -c c:\ntldr

Windows vista black edition bootmgr compressed

Windows Black is a pirated version of Windows XP dressed up to look like Vista. Apart from being illegal software I have found that most versions of Black are highly unstable. If you want Vista then I recommend you buy a proper copy. If you're looking for free then I suggest you look at one of the many flavors of Linux. Most Linux distros(versions) have incredible graphical interfaces and are becoming almost more user friendly than Windows.
