This is a boot config problem.

The fix will require that you have the Windows XP cd. Maybe you can borrow one from a friend in order to fix this. Once you have the cd, navigate to the following link for step by step instructons.

Close down your computer. Then start to re-boot and keep tapping the f8 key until you get a black and white page of text.
Select Start up in Safe Mode
See if that works normally

Windows does not start automatic


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

Boot manager is compressed


There are some security programs that do this. When you press Ctrl-Alt-Del, you get a password dialog. Certain viruses also have this effect, either by imitating the security startup or sabotaging the boot sector.
Can you boot the computer with an optical disk or USB boot system? (Some Linux distributions can be installed on a USB flash drive. If your notebook BIOS lets you enable USB boot, you can start and run the computer using the the flash drive.)
If you can get a Windows install disk for your version, you can try a repair install to see if it will patch a corrupted boot sector. Otherwise, you may need to use an antivirus scan run from a system on an external drive.

My rebooted my advent 4211-b netbook to factory setting by the tech guys on the netbook but now my netbook wont start up, it says the window boot configuration data file does not contain a valid os entry


Welcome to Fixya

Error means the boot files are missing or damaged. Try to restore the computer using the disk that came with it instead of using the recovery console.

Thank you for using Fixya!

It will not reboot the message 'boot manager is compressed' is displayed and will not move past it


Check points for fixing compressed boot-manager:
  • Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (usually the install DVD or Create a Windows Vista/7 Recovery disk on an USB stick) 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:
    • compact /U C:\bootmgr
    • compact /U C:\ntldr
  • 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

My netook ADVENT 4211C is saying BOOTMGR missing I do not have CD Rom in it I am trying install windows xp by usb but it is not reading the USB What should I do ....???


Hi,

You should be able to recover the operating system from the hidden partition on the hard drive.

  1. When the PC starts you will see a menu for two seconds. Press the UP or DOWN arrow and this will pause the menu and allow you to choose an option.
  2. Highlight The TechGuys Recovery and press the Enter key.
  3. This will load into the recovery program.
  4. Select Reinstall Windows by clicking on the circle to the left.
  5. Click the right arrow.
  6. Put a tick in the box next to Start Full Destructive Recovery.
  7. Click the right arrow to start Recovery.
  8. When Recovery has completed, click the right arrow to restart the system.
  9. Your computer will then return you to its initial out-of-box experience.

Note - The data on your hard drive will be permanently deleted. Please save all important files and documents to an external device before you begin. This includes your emails, Works/Office documents, internet favourites, music, photos and videos files.
Setting the boot priority
In order to boot from a USB memory stick (pen drive) or SD card, your computer must have the correct boot priority. To check this is set correctly, follow the steps below:
  1. Power down your PC for a few seconds, then power it up again and tap the DEL key several times as it loads. This will display a grey screen with blue title bar saying Aptio Setup Utility.
  2. Press the right-arrow key on the keyboard until Boot is highlighted.
  3. Highlight Boot Option #1. Press ENTER.
  4. Select USB HardDisk from the list and press ENTER.
  5. Highlight Boot Option #2. Press ENTER.
  6. Select Hard Disk from the list and press ENTER.
  7. Press the right-arrow key on the keyboard until Save & Exit is highlighted.
  8. Insert the Recovery Backup media and press ENTER.
Note: The System Recovery utility will reinstall all hardware and software supplied with your Advent Netbook. However, you will need to reinstall any additional software and hardware that you may have added. Please refer to the documentation supplied with those products for further help.
Recovering from a USB memory stick (pen drive) / SD card
  1. With your USB memory stick or SD card inserted, reboot your computer. This will load into the recovery program.
  2. Select Reinstall Windows by clicking on the circle to the left.
  3. Click the right arrow.
  4. Put a tick in the box next to Start Full Destructive Recovery.
  5. Click the right arrow to start Recovery.
  6. When Recovery has completed, remove the Recovery Backup media and click the right arrow to restart the system.
  7. Your computer will then return you to the initial Windows out-of-box experience setup screens.

Good luck.

Can't get on windows xp?


Hi,
Have you tried running it in safe mode, then you can restore it to a later date. Or if you have a XP cd, run a repair on windows.

Good Luck
