SOURCE: bootmgr is compressed
I know of three solutions, none of them will work without recovery or OS discs, and I can only guarantee one of them--the one that whipes your system. Try these in this order (assuming you have system discs);
#1 Boot from the system disc and choose the "repair" option. This is the quickest fix, and you lose anything.
#2 Boot from the system disc, and in your Start menu search type "Command Prompt". Open Command Prompt and type (hit enter after each line);
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h
#3 Run a full system recovery from your system discs.
Now, if you don't have your system discs, and you're running Windows Vista, there is another possible option. If your computer is fairly new then you probably have a WinRE partition for recovery, (a "factory image" drive)? I won't go into this now, if you have your discs option 1 or 2 should work for you.

SOURCE: cannot restart laptop
"Boot with the Vista DVD, when it enters Setup hit your SHIFT-F10 keys Setup will run "cmd", and drops you to a command prompt that is running with SYSTEM privileges.
Then at the command prompt type the following (hitting <enter>) after each line.:
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h"
hope this helps! :)

SOURCE: BOOTMGR is missing
This error can be corrected by reloading your Laptop's Operating System from the Restore disks you got with your computer. Place your Restore disk into the drive and restart the computer. The install will re-create the missing Boot Manager.

Insert Microsoft Windows Vista Installation Disc.
Press any key when it says "Press any key to boot from CD".
After that you should see "Windows is loading files..."
KEEP pressing F8/F9(can't rmb which, just press both alternately) while
the progress bar loads..... Dun let go until you reach "Advanced boot
information" where you should see Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking,
Last Good known configuration etc...., just select Safe Mode with
Networking(or Safe Mode/Safe Mode with Command Prompt) and press Enter.
Wait for the files to load and there should be "Safe Mode" on 4 corners
of your monitor.
Just be patient and wait. A windows would soon pop up and says "Install
Windows". Don't worry, click next. Now at the bottom of this window, you
should see "Repair Windows". Click on it, and there are several options
available here. For this case, which is "Bootmgr is compressed.", CHOOSE
THE LAST OPTION - "Start Command Prompt".
OK type these things (Only works if you have Firefox, can't think of
anything else) below and follow closely:
When Command Prompt is started, type the command below first to ensure
that C Drive or whichever drive which contains all your system files is
X:System> (The string on the left is what appears on command prompt,
may differ on other computers.)
Now TYPE "C:" or "D:", depending on the hard disc volume you are
SO IT BECOMES:
THE RETURNING COMMAND WOULD BE:
If you get this, very good, continue with the steps below.
CDProgram FilesMozilla Firefox
THE RESULT SHOULD BE SOMETHING LIKE THIS:
C:>CDProgram FilesMozilla Firefox (Press ENTER)
C:Program FilesMozilla Firefox (<<<<< Result)
Now type "firefox".
wait for Firefox to launch now.
it doesn't matter if no internet is available.
Now on firefox, go to File > Open File
Double click "My Computer", and you should see your hard disc there,
but don't double click on the hard disc. Instead, click once on the hard
disc, RIGHT CLICK, and choose properties. AT THE BOTTOM, UNTICK, I
REPEAT, UNTICK THE BOX SAYING "Compress this drive to save space
etc....". NOW CLICK APPLY, WAIT, AND I MEAN WAIT PATIENTLY OK? AFTER
THAT CLICK ON "OK".
AFTER PRESSING OK, DO A QUICK LOOK AT YOUR DRIVE BY DOUBLE-CLICKING IT
NOW. IF ANY FILES/FOLDERS ARE BLUE IN COLOUR INSTEAD OF BLACK,
RIGHT-CLICK IT, CHOOSE PROPERTIES, CLICK ADVANCED BUTTON (Beside
Read-Only Box and Archive Box), UNTICK, I REPEAT, UNTICK the 3RD BOX
Which says "Compress contents to save disc space".
Click OK, Apply and close the folder/file properties.
Now close the box opened by firefox, close firefox, close command
prompt AND AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE FIRST WINDOW WHICH POPS UP
MENTIONED EARLIER, PRESS RESTART.
Your computer should be able to start properly now
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
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:
o compact /U C:ootmgr
o compact /U C: tldr
