My windows repair cd won't work on start up

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!!

Make a win 7 ISO and burn it to your DVD. A copy won't boot it must be an ISO.

    Ok, I put it onto the disc using ISO Image Burner which worked fine. I then tried to use it on my other laptop to get it working again, guess what?? It didn't do a thing! Is there anything else I can do?

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
del bootmgr
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.

BOOTMGR is compressed


I will give you a link with detailed instructions to fix this problem but first you need to be sure you have a Windows 7 or Windows Vista (whichever version you're currently running) recovery or installation CD or DVD and a working CD/DVD drive. That said, here's the link (just look about 1/4 of the way down the page for the instructions).

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:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927391

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

First before doing this you need to make sure you have your windows vista CD.

If you do not you need to obtain a copy of this,

the following site should have all the details you need to make the CD and also to fix the problem :)

You can find lots of items about this problem on Google. Without more information such as your operating system and what happened before the problem started, it's hard to say any more. Try this thread for several possible solutions.
