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

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

Thanks it's work
1) Insert installation dvd
2 ) Click repair my computer
3) Try letting it fix it by using the startup repair
If that fails then cancel till you reach the menu where you can select the c: prompt.

4) Now write :-- cd\Windows\system32

5) Write:---- bootsect /nt60 c:

6) Now restart the computer.

I have an Amilo Pro V2035 and when switching on it only display 'BootMGR compressed.' I'v tried to press Ctrl+Alt+Del but nothing has changed. Pliz help me how I can restart the Laptop.


press F12 for boot manager before the screen displays bootmgr compressed.. Sounds like your hard drive may have developed a problem. When you press f12 you should get some startup options.insert your OS CD
go to DOS window and type in your OS drive (usualy C:\)
type in bootrec /FixMbr
then type in bootrec /fixboot
then type in bootrec /rebuildbcd
then type in exit
restart your computer

Boot manager is compressed


There are some security programs that do this. When you press Ctrl-Alt-Del, you get a password dialog. Certain viruses also have this effect, either by imitating the security startup or sabotaging the boot sector.
Can you boot the computer with an optical disk or USB boot system? (Some Linux distributions can be installed on a USB flash drive. If your notebook BIOS lets you enable USB boot, you can start and run the computer using the the flash drive.)
If you can get a Windows install disk for your version, you can try a repair install to see if it will patch a corrupted boot sector. Otherwise, you may need to use an antivirus scan run from a system on an external drive.

You need to format your Laptop or you can try replacing the Boot files from another Laptop.
You can try repairing your OS by booting the original disc.

The problem is that the part of the disk that your computer boots from is compressed [since you compressed the entire HDD] and the computer cannot access the files that it needs to in order to boot correctly.

After (successful) restoration of desktop 838GM, boot-up get stuck at black screen with message that "NTLDR is compressed, press ctrl alt del to restart". When I do the ctrl alt del, computer reboots but...


The startup files are corrupted.You need to put the windows disk in the DVD and make the computer boot off that when it starts up. Booting off the DVD may need to be set in the BIOS if the machine does not do it automatically.
When the window comes up you select install windows.
Second option is repair my computer. Then follow the prompts.

Boot mgr is missing


Boot Manager is missing 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 Check points for fixing missing boot-manager: Check that your boot device is configured properly Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". Boot Manager is compressed 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 OR maybe try this first. Check points for fixing compressed boot-manager: Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". If the above doesn't solve the problem then boot into WinRE again, but when selecting the Vista-installation, then press "Load Drivers" (Instead of "Next") and use the mini Windows Explorer to right-click the boot-drive and deselect "Compress this Drive" and choose Apply to sub-folders and files. If that also fails then boot into WinRE again, and go to the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands: compact /U C:\bootmgr compact /U C:\ntldr If you for some strange reason have lost your Vista DVD, then you can also use a Windows 2000 / XP install CD and enter the recovery console instead and execute the following commands: attrib -c c:\bootmgr attrib -c c:\ntldr


Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.
