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

If you have compressed the hard disk drive using the Compress drive to save disk space option under the Properties menu for your hard disk drive and have performed a non-destructive recovery or a system recovery, the following error message may appear: NTLDR is compressed. Press CRTL-ALT-DEL to restart. This error message is resolved by following these steps:
  1. Insert the HP Recovery Tools CD or Compaq Recovery Tools CD into the CD drive on the computer and restart the computer.Wait for the HP Recovery Tools CD or Compaq Recovery Tools CD window to open.
  2. Select Run Microsoft Recovery Console , click Next , and then follow the onscreen instructions. NOTE: If you are unable to open a recovery console, follow the Alternate steps .
  3. Press R to repair the Windows XP installation using Recovery Console.
  4. Enter the appropriate number for the WINDOWS installation, for example, the WINDOWS installation could be listed as 3: C:\WINDOWS or 3: D:\WINDOWS .
  5. If prompted, enter your Administrator password and press Enter . If there is no password, just press Enter .
  6. At the prompt, if the WINDOWS installation you selected in Step 4 was C:\WINDOWS, type: cd c:\Or, if the WINDOWS installation you selected in Step 4 was D:\WINDOWS, type: cd d:\
  7. At the prompt, type: attrib -c ntldr and then press Enter .
  8. At the prompt, type: exit
  9. Press the Enter key and immediately remove all discs or diskettes from the computer to allow the computer to restart.The error message should be resolved.
Alternate steps NOTE: These alternate steps work for HP and Compaq desktop PCs with Windows XP and a recovery partition. (M0st HP and Compaq PCs with Windows XP have a recovery partition on the hard disk drive.) These steps do not work if you have replaced the hard disk drive, replaced Windows with another operating system, or repartitioned the recovery partition.You can use the following steps if you are unable to open a recovery console:
  1. Turn on the computer. When the initial logo screen appears, press the F10 key repeatedly until a message about starting recovery appears.
  2. At the Recovery screen, click Advanced Options and then press the Alt and D keys at the same time to go to a command prompt.
  3. At the command prompt, enter the following: diskpart
  4. At the command prompt, enter the following: list volume
  5. Remember the drive letter next to line for the main hard drive; HP_PAVILION or PRESARIO.
  6. To close Diskpart, enter the following: exit
  7. At the command prompt, enter the drive letter followed by a colon (:). For example, H:
  8. At the command prompt, enter the following: cd \windows\system32
  9. At the command prompt, type the following: compact ntldr /u <the drive letter>:\ntldr For example if the drive letter was H, you would type: compact ntldr /u h:\ntldr
  10. Type exit and press Enter .
  11. Click Quit .The error message should be resolved.

Ntldr compressed have no xp cd or recovery disks lost somewhere


you cannot repair the NTLDR without an XP disc to repair the system, but it may be the drive, you can connect it to another pc as slave and then run the disk error check tool in my computer.

I receive a message when booting up, which says NTLDR is Compressed Press Ctrl, Alt, Del to restart. I have no windows xp home edition cd or any recovery cd. My laptop is an Ei-System which I brought from...


You're in a real dilemma without an XP CD (it doesn't have to be yours). What you need to do is to repair the installation. I'm assuming you intentionally compressed your hard drive.

What you need to do is to boot to the CD and then, when prompted, press "R" to recover you build. It will take you to a shelled DOS prompt. From there run CHKDSK on your boot drive and it should see the compressed NTLDR and fix it.
