Ntldr is compressed

An NTLDR is compressed error is pretty easy to fix(much better then NTLDR is missing errors!).

First you need to boot to the recovery console.

To boot to the recovery console follow these steps:
1. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer. Click(or press any key) to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3. When prompted type "1" or if you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5. Now you should be at the comman prompt and ready to repair the ntldr file!

Now all you need to do is enter the following commands(in order) and each command on a new line just like you see them here:

cd \
attrib -c ntldr

Your computer should now reboot, and everything "should" work!

NTLDR is compressed -- on my emachine laptop -- I seem to be in a vicious circle here.

You can try to fix the NTLDR compressed issue by repairing it using the Windows XP OS Installation Disc

1. Restart your computer, make sure that the boot priority is on the DVD/CD Rom drive
2. Press any key to boot from CD...
3. When the Welcome setup shows up press "R" to go to Recovery console
4. Press 1 to choose the drive where the OS is installed, or a different number if your computer is configured for multibooting
5. Just press enter for the password, but if you have administrator password type in your password.
6. Type this command without quotes "attrib -c ntldr"
7. Restart your computer and it should fix the problem, if not, tell me what happen

My ntldr is compress how do i fix it

Do not worry, you can do it easily.....

All you have to do is, just right click on the "ntldr" file, click "properties",
Click "Advanced", &
Uncheck the option which says "Compress contents to save disk space".

(If it is a Desktop)
If you are not able to boot your system, you have to remove the hard disk, and connect it to another system, and boot from that computer, and you will be able to browse this hard disk which you connected now.... and then try to Uncompress the ntldr file, as mentioned above....,

Might seem like a tedious job, but it works....
