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 ...
