    So you are trying to get into the BIOS? If so, hit F1 for Toshiba. If that does not work then hold the ESC key down so it thinks the keyboard is stuck and it should bring you to the BIOS. Other than that I have not had the pleasure of this error, lol. TechSupportGuy uhaligani says: Get to the command line. You could do this by booting up on the Vista DVD. Now type, at the Command line: expand bootmgr temp attrib bootmgr -s -r -h del bootmgr ren temp bootmgr attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h I assume this must be a Vista issue as you did not state. 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
