The Windows operating system allows you to compress the files on your drive to conserve disk space. In some situations, this compression process will compress files required for the operating system to boot. Files that are compressed must be decompressed prior to execution. Since the operating system has not loaded, boot files cannot yet be decompressed. In this case, the operating system will fail to load and a "BootMgr is compressed" message will appear. An easy way around this problem is to boot from the Windows DVD, and use the provided interface to access your drive properties and decompress it.

Turn on the computer, and insert your Windows DVD. Press a random key on your keyboard once you see the "Press any key..." message. This interrupts booting from the hard drive and forces a boot from the Windows DVD. Click the "Next" button at the bottom of the Windows 7 dialog, and then click the "Repair your Computer" link Below. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/What-are-the-system-recovery-options-in-Windows-7 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa364219(v=vs.85).aspx File Compression and Decompression Select the "Load Drivers" button at the bottom of the "System Recovery Options" dialog, and click the "OK" button on the "Add Drivers" dialog. This opens a file browser on your screen. Click the "Computer" icon, which is located on the left hand side of the screen. This displays an icon for your disk drive. Right-click your hard drive, and click "Properties. " This opens a Local Disk Properties dialog. Click to deselect the "Compress this drive..." option at the bottom, and then click the "Apply" button. Select the "X" icon to close the file browser window. This takes you back to the Install Windows dialog. Press the "X" icon at the corner of the Install Windows dialog. This opens a cancellation dialog. Select the "Yes" button on this dialog to restart your computer. Hope this helps

How to change to a different date in advanced booting options


To change your system date through Advanced Booting options, you first need to enter BIOS setup menu of your system. To enter BIOS setup menu and to change your system date, you can follow the instructions below:
1.Boot your system and enter BIOS setup menu using the designated key. Though the key to enter BIOS may vary depending upon the computer manufacturer, usually keys like Delete, F12, F10, and F2 are designated to enable a user to enter BIOS setup. To know how to identify the key your system is designated to enter BIOS setup, you can refer to the image under "Method 1 of 3: Enter the BIOS" section on the following webpage:
Important: Following link is of a third-party website. We recommend you to update your security software thoroughly before clicking on the link.
http://www.wikihow.com/Change-Computer-BIOS-Settings

2.As soon as you identify the BIOS setup key, strike it rapidly and repeatedly (while the booting is on) till the time you enter BIOS setup menu. You may get just a few seconds to do this. If you are not able to enter BIOS setup menu by pressing the key repeatedly, reboot your system and follow the same steps again to enter BIOS setup menu.
Note: BIOS menu do not support mouse input. Hence, you will have to navigate through the menu using the arrow keys on your keyboard.
3.Once you enter BIOS setup menu, you can change the date of your system by going to "System Date" option. This option is generally located in the "Main" section of the menu.
Important: The layout of BIOS menu varies from manufacturer to manufacturer but most of them share a few common settings. If you are not able to detect "System Date" option in the "Main" section of the menu, you may need to look into other sections to locate the option.
To get a pictorial explanation of the above steps, you can refer to the following link:

Hope this will resolve your issue.

Install to pc


Power on the computer and enter the BIOS menu. It will tell you which button to press to enter setup. Generally it will be F1, F2 F10 F12 or Del.
At this point you can insert your operating system disc.
In BIOS navigate the menus and look for Boot Order, or similar Make sure CD/DVD boots before anything else
Press whichever key the menu states to save and exit (Probably F10)
When the computer boots it should either start booting to the installation setup or ask you to press any key to enter installation. Do so and follow the prompts to install your operating system.
Post if you need more info.

How to save exit in bios for toshiba portege 1601...because i want to install new windows so i enter bios and chage the boot order...so i want to exit save setup.


Hit escape. It will ask you if you want to save and quit.
It may also tell you an F key (such as F10) to save and quit.
It may also have the save and quit option on the last menu (furthest to the right).

Hi there.

For this process you will need:
1) The hard drive you want the operating system on.
2) The operating system disk (Windows, Linux, etc, depending on your os choice)
3) A CD/DVD drive.

Firstly you will need to enter the BIOS on startup by pressing the Delete key repeatedly as your system starts up. In the BIOS you need to locate the boot disk priority section. You need to set priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the hard drive you wish to install the operating system to. Once this is done save changes to the BIOS and exit. Your system should now restart and on boot-up it should display a message "Insert bootable disk" or something like that. This is where you put in the operating systems install disk into your CD/DVD drive. Once it is in restart your system. Now your PC should boot up and ask you to press "Enter" to boot form the CD/DVD. Press enter to proceed. The setup should now begin, just follow the steps given by the setup wizard. Once the setup is finished and your PC reboots and on startup you get the same message about pressing "Enter" to begin setup just do nothing. Your PC should then switch automatically to your newly installed operating system and boot into it. Once your PC is fully booted into your operating system of choice remove the setup disk.

I need to install an operating system on a Samsung q1 ultra


Suggest you use an external DVD drive, and put your installation disk in it. Then access the BIOS Setup utility.

In BIOS Setup, find the Boot Order menu. (Generally, along the top headings of the main menu, in BIOS Setup, or located in Advanced BIOS Settings) Set the first boot device to be CDROM. Be sure to Save your change.
This way the handheld, will boot from the installation disk, in your external DVD drive.

Should you be trying to downgrade from Vista to XP, you have to change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM. If not, Vista won't let you overwrite it.
Vista is an upgrade over XP.

How to install windows


You need the windows CD to install windows, insert the cd in drive and press enter when asked to press anykey to start from cd.
if you don't get the start from cd and the windows setup doesn't start then most likely your computer is not set to startup from a cd drive, look in the cornerts of your computer screen look for boot menu or press this to enter setup / bios

you can either use the setup / bios or the boot menu and boot from the cd.

if you use the boot menu, make sure the cd is in the drive and select the drive from the list

if you don't find boot menu or it doens't work go into the bios / setup and you will need to change the boot order to include the CD drive FIRST before hdd or floppy. consult your motherboard manual or ask me if you need help in the bios.
