Greetings,

You need an external CD/DVD player and a WIndows XP cd to match whatever XP is intalled on your mini (Home, Pro). I'd advise finding a friend who knows how to enter the BIOS at startup and set the mini to boot from the external CD drive.

With the mini set to boot from the external, you'll need to begin Windows setup and let it run to the point where you're given the opporunity to select repairing Windows by pressing R and do just that.

You'll be looking at a blinking cursor in black and white and it'll look a little intimidating.

No Prob

type Help and hit enter. Now you'll see a bunch of commands and how they are typed.

hit enter a few times until you are back at the blinking cursor.

type in FIXBOOT and hit enter. When told it'll rewrite your boot manager go ahead and tell it to do that.

When finished, reboot your mini after you remove the external CD drive. You should be repaired.

Cheers!

MArcus

Hp mini bootmgr missing


First goto BIOS and check if the order of boot devices is correct. It should be HDD as first option to boot. Change the same and save and exit BIOS. This should help you boot. If not, you You can create a bootage USB and set your system to boot from the same as an alternate option. Once booted repair your OS.

BOOTMGR IS COMPRESSED


After the msg is displayed,
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to continue Try to boot via the Bootable disc, boot to safe mode via the disc and try the folowing
go to dos and try
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h

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.

I get a bootmgr compressed error when i start my acer netbook its telsl me to hit control alt delete but this only repeats over and over how can i uncompress the bootmgr file so the netbook boots up


Boot Manager is the file controlling the boot security process and is corrupt.
Try and start in safe mode and run CHKDSK/F
If you can't get it to work, use your recovery disc and recover your system.
