My HP Mini Laptop needs the BOOTMGR file in the root of C: (hidden) - I did notice that you can see it when you run CutePTF32 but mine is corrupt and needs replacing.. Mine was accidentally "compressed" but I can get a USB stick to boot also IF I had this file... anyone?

This may be due to the reason that your Compaq model is only Vista or Win7 Compatible.I didn't get your question properly but as you're having no windows or DOS in your machine.All you need is a Bootable Windows Disc and a working DVD rom to get this done.Cause commands or anything else will require that and even if you fix it with some tricks. Some Other file missing message may appear. But if you just want to push yourself. Normally are Booting files are in the root folder in my case it's in C:\ like NTLDR BOOT.ini BootSect.dos so try to access your root drive.
After the msg is displayed, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to continue
Try to boot via the Bootable disc, boot to safe mode via the disc and try the folowing
go to dos and try
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h
If the above process doesnt works then try,
"Click 'Repair my Computer'
At the prompt to select your OS installation, click the button that says
'Load Drivers'. This should bring up a explorer-style drive browser.
Then just right-click on the drive you tried to compress, and
deselect 'Compress this Drive', which should still be ticked on. Hit
apply, and apply to subfolders/files.
...to reboot your computer. I am really sorry, but that means that your windows wont start because root folder is corrupted/damaged. On HP machines usually f10 is restore button. If not that one try f8.Reboot your computer and start tapping f10 till you see restore options. Then have your choice.Good luck!
