Bootmgr compressed self fix


At times after enabling / disabling disk compression on Win 7 or Vista boot drive you may receive the Bootmgr is Compressed error upon restarting your computer as displayed below:

BOOTMGR IS COMPRESSED
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to Restart
1. After rebooting with OS DVD, choose "Repair your Computer" and then select "Startup Repair". Reboot your computer.
2. After rebooting, click on "Load drivers" button an explorer style window will pop up, go ahead and right click on the drive that may have been compressed and deselect `Compress this Drive'. Choose apply and then apply to subfolders/files before rebooting.

There are registry commands also that can be used. But the above 2 steps can be very helpful to start with.

Acer laptop saying bootmgr compressed type in password at start but keeps going to bootmgr compressed cannot access any thing


To solve this, you need the install, update or recovery (Win7) disk for your version of the Windows OS. (I am assuming you do not have Unix on the machine.) Make sure to match the service pack and specific version (Home Basic, Premium or Business for Vista (32 or 64-bit), Home or Pro for XP) installed. The Windows 7 install or upgrade discs have the contents of all the options. If you have a laptop without an optical drive, you can run the files from a USB optical drive or thumb drive.

Put this disc in your optical drive and restart your computer. Press F12 repeatedly as the computer starts. This will give the Boot Options menu. Select boot from CD or USB as needed. Let Windows load from the optical drive and then choose the Recovery option. You will need to use the Command Prompt option. Then type "bootrec /FixMBR" without the quotes and followed by enter. Then type "bootrec /Fixboot" (as above without the quotes and followed by enter). At the next prompt, type "bootrec /rebuildbcd". When you get the next prompt, type exit.

Now restart the computer. If one of the above steps failed, you may need to reinstall your OS. Another option to try is to Validate and Fix the File System. From the same recovery disc command prompt, type "chkdsk c: /r" to repair the boot process.

I hope this helps.

go to dos and try
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
del bootmgr

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.
