    Kingpin:



    And why dose he need to format his disk? he has a compessed failure, that can be solved without format the disk,

    The NTLDR files cant start start coz they are compressed, they can uncompressed so no need to format the entire disk!

Bootmgr missing


That is the file that your computer looks for to Boot up the operating system software. Either your OS (operating software) is corrupted or your hard disk drive might be defective. Here is a link to your model:
ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_optiplex_desktop/optiplex-740_user%27s%20guide_en-us.pdf
Select the appropriate model and then view diagnostics or troubleshooting links to see if your hard drive is bad. If the diags pass on the hard drive test, then you will need to reload software.

Computer error on startup .. Fkymo is compressed .. How do I get out from the screen? This is a dell dimension 2400


I think BootMGR is compressed..you need to decompress your Hard Drive.

To do that, you Boot Windows CD, Go in Repair option in your computer, and then load drivers
By there, you go back until you find computer, and then you decompress everything.

If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell at http://www.vtechsquad.com/

Compressed bootmgr


LOL, sound like you might be SOL or up the creek without a paddle.

Can you get into the Bios and make sure you are booting from the hard drive as your first option?

Boot mgr is missing


Boot Manager is missing If the boot partition no longer can be found, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information
More Info MS KB 919529 More Info MS KB 927391 Check points for fixing missing boot-manager: Check that your boot device is configured properly Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". Boot Manager is compressed If by accident having compressed the entire boot partition, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is compressed. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart OR maybe try this first. Check points for fixing compressed boot-manager: Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". If the above doesn't solve the problem then boot into WinRE again, but when selecting the Vista-installation, then press "Load Drivers" (Instead of "Next") and use the mini Windows Explorer to right-click the boot-drive and deselect "Compress this Drive" and choose Apply to sub-folders and files. If that also fails then boot into WinRE again, and go to the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands: compact /U C:\bootmgr compact /U C:\ntldr 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


Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

My netook ADVENT 4211C is saying BOOTMGR missing I do not have CD Rom in it I am trying install windows xp by usb but it is not reading the USB What should I do ....???


Hi,

You should be able to recover the operating system from the hidden partition on the hard drive.

  1. When the PC starts you will see a menu for two seconds. Press the UP or DOWN arrow and this will pause the menu and allow you to choose an option.
  2. Highlight The TechGuys Recovery and press the Enter key.
  3. This will load into the recovery program.
  4. Select Reinstall Windows by clicking on the circle to the left.
  5. Click the right arrow.
  6. Put a tick in the box next to Start Full Destructive Recovery.
  7. Click the right arrow to start Recovery.
  8. When Recovery has completed, click the right arrow to restart the system.
  9. Your computer will then return you to its initial out-of-box experience.

Note - The data on your hard drive will be permanently deleted. Please save all important files and documents to an external device before you begin. This includes your emails, Works/Office documents, internet favourites, music, photos and videos files.
Setting the boot priority
In order to boot from a USB memory stick (pen drive) or SD card, your computer must have the correct boot priority. To check this is set correctly, follow the steps below:
  1. Power down your PC for a few seconds, then power it up again and tap the DEL key several times as it loads. This will display a grey screen with blue title bar saying Aptio Setup Utility.
  2. Press the right-arrow key on the keyboard until Boot is highlighted.
  3. Highlight Boot Option #1. Press ENTER.
  4. Select USB HardDisk from the list and press ENTER.
  5. Highlight Boot Option #2. Press ENTER.
  6. Select Hard Disk from the list and press ENTER.
  7. Press the right-arrow key on the keyboard until Save & Exit is highlighted.
  8. Insert the Recovery Backup media and press ENTER.
Note: The System Recovery utility will reinstall all hardware and software supplied with your Advent Netbook. However, you will need to reinstall any additional software and hardware that you may have added. Please refer to the documentation supplied with those products for further help.
Recovering from a USB memory stick (pen drive) / SD card
  1. With your USB memory stick or SD card inserted, reboot your computer. This will load into the recovery program.
  2. Select Reinstall Windows by clicking on the circle to the left.
  3. Click the right arrow.
  4. Put a tick in the box next to Start Full Destructive Recovery.
  5. Click the right arrow to start Recovery.
  6. When Recovery has completed, remove the Recovery Backup media and click the right arrow to restart the system.
  7. Your computer will then return you to the initial Windows out-of-box experience setup screens.

Good luck.

Hard drive compressed/bootmgr compressed


I'm assuming that you are running vista. Try one of the following:
You will require a Vista DVD to boot off of.

Proceed to the System Repair Option, and follow the steps. It should repair your boot sectors..

Or

Once you have booted up, Press SHIFT+F10 to run 'cmd' prompt.

Then at the command prompt type the following (hitting <enter>) after each line.:

attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h
