HP Mini 1000 - USB to boot in dos

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?

    It has Windows XP installed but without the BOOTMGR file you get "BOOTMGR is compressed" when it attempts to start up...

    Sorry.. It has XP installed right from the box.. as to a CD restore there is no CD in a mini Laptop like this one.. Just 3 USB ports.. and I don't have an external CD drive.. and of course HP doesn't give you restore disks.. -Rob

BOOTMGR is missing

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
del bootmgr
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.

I get a bootmgr compressed error when i start my acer netbook its telsl me to hit control alt delete but this only repeats over and over how can i uncompress the bootmgr file so the netbook boots up

Boot Manager is the file controlling the boot security process and is corrupt.
Try and start in safe mode and run CHKDSK/F
If you can't get it to work, use your recovery disc and recover your system.

Wont boot up error msg: BOOTMGR is compressed. Press control Alt Delete. 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!
