Question about Computers & Internet
I have the BOOTMGR is compressed message coming up. I did compress my disc, not knowing it would do all of it including the BOOTMGR. I've since made a Windows 7 32 bit repair disc but whenever I try to start up with it (even tho' I've changed the position of the disc in bootup)and still it doesn't work????? Why does this happen and how can I repair it please? Need some help here! I tried my Windows 7 disc with my other laptop but that doesn't work either! HELP!!

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.

was boot to the recovery cd for 7 and run the collowing commands from the command prompt. (Press key after each line)
c: cd \windows cd system32 compact /u c:\ compact /u c:\*.* x: bootrec /FixMbr bootrec /fixboot bootrec /rebuildbcd
with that the boot loader was flagged to no longer be compressed (Prevent re-occurance), uncompressed (Make it usable), and then rebuilt.
