On display - BOOTMGR IS COMPRESSED i pressed ctrl -alt -del but nothing happened kindly advise next step laptop acer extensa 5620


Hello,
Here is the fix for Bootmgr problem in Vista/7
Bootmgr Windows Vista/7
For windows XP : Try to fix your windows by selecting repair option.
  • Boot your computer with the Windows XP CD
  • At the first screen select R to repair
  • If you got a command prompt, just type on the command prompt "fixboot" then hit enter.
If those information did not help you with the bootmgr issue, then you might need to reinstall windows on your computer.

Hope this will help

HP 1000 mini-netbook bootmgr compressed--no cd/dvd hard drive--


Why all these clueless suggestions? I came here looking for help, but it appears I'll be solving my own problem and lend a hand. First attach something bootable via USB like you already know. Change boot order and boot from some kind of XP install disk. That's where I'm at right now. I'm now in the recovery console which gives me a command line. I had JUST READ somewhere the comand line commands to restore the boot manager that we just compressed.
Hold on....OK ! Problem fixed.
Step by step:
1)Get external CD reader and plug into USB
2)Boot Mini hit F10 or F12, whatever it says to change boot order
3)Reboot and you'll see you now have option to change boot order on bootup.
4)Boot to some kind of XP start disk(stupid me never even looked at HP's recovery disk yet - I didn't want to go there!)
5)Let the startup program run til it stops asking you to select an option, and hit R for recovery console
6)You'll want option 1 for c:/windows and type your password when asked
6)type fixboot then enter
7)It will happily inform you that your boot record is repaired
There may be some warnings or statements in between. You're desperate - agree to whatever they say! ;-)
8)reboot
9)Don't worry, be happy
If you can't stand that you now have that message booting up every time and it looks weird, RIGHT click my computer, properties, advanced, startup and recovery settings, and edit ....change default operating system from ** to Microsoft Windows XPHome etc."
click edit and for good measure delete where it has WINDOWS="" as an operating system. Don't mess with this if you're not sure.
10)Now be happy!

When I start my computer, it gives the message "bootmgr is compressed" and instructs me to cntl+alt+del. When I do the ctrl+alt+del, it resets to the same place. I have an IBM Thinkpad T42.


Hi Ivanprime200,

You need to boot from the Vista DVD., Click to select '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.
Make sure you hit apply, and apply to subfolders/files.

After that, restart your laptop.

This should able to help you, good luck. Please some back here if you still have problem.

Don't forget to rate my solution.. Thanks...

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
