Hello there subahas_sumi.

Here's your GEEK-steer ...

Did you (or a program) compress your system boot drive (i.e., C:\) prior to this trouble? Because what this error message is telling us is that your BOOTMGR* is in a compressed state (which it doesn't like to be in). You will fix your trouble as soon as you DE-compress it.

* = A hidden, system, read-only file with no extension in its filename. It's located in the root of the system partition (typically C:\BOOTMGR). It's the boot loader, which starts the process of choosing which operating system (OS) to load [Vista or (in a dual-boot system) WinXP, or some other OS].

Following are some edited bootmgr
-missing.html">instructions on correcting this problem:

1. Boot into "Windows Recovery Environment" (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair".

2. 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", then choose Apply to sub-folders and files.

3. If that also fails then boot into WinRE again, then go to the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands:

compact /U C:\bootmgr
compact /U C:\ntldr


4. 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


TIP: Regarding either the Vista DVD, or Windows 2000/XP install CD, anyone's will do. In other words, if you have need (and can), simply borrow one.

Good luck to you, and thanks in advance for posting back ...

  • to let me (and others) know how things worked out,
  • if you have any further questions,
  • to provide clarification or feedback.

Cannot restart laptop


"Boot with the Vista DVD, when it enters Setup hit your SHIFT-F10 keys Setup will run "cmd", and drops you to a command prompt that is running with SYSTEM privileges.

Then at the command prompt type the following (hitting <enter>) after each line.:

attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h
"

hope this helps! :)

Compressed boot manager


Windows Vista includes a new Boot Manager (BootMgr) that replaces the old NT Loader (Ntldr).

If the boot partition no longer can be found, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information

More Info MS KB 919529
More Info MS KB 927391

This can usually be solved by checking the boot devices, and if no problems found then use Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair".

If by accident having compressed the entire boot partition, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is compressed. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
This can usually be solved by using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". If that fails then use WinRE to enter the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands:
  • compact /U C:\bootmgr
  • compact /U C:\ntldr
