“bootmgr is compressed” in Windows 7


15Share
The dreaded message “bootmgr is compressed” is another bugger and requires some work on your
side.

I happen to run into a lot of errors in Windows 7 due to file compression. I’m not saying that it’s
bugged, I’m just saying that it’s causing problems for my own setup and is even slowing it down.
Anyway, if you run into this error, your bootmgr file is probably located on another drive than your
Windows 7 main partition. Thus, you are receiving the error. The bootmgr file will be written to the
BIOS default HDD, but if it’s on another hard drive then it can get compressed.
So, what can we do about the error “bootmgr is compressed”?

Repair your computer


Press F8 during boot up to get a list of all start-up options. Choose “Repair your computer”:

A list of your installed OS’s will appear:


Method 1: Repair bootmgr via Command Prompt
Open the command prompt.

Next, simply enter the following command to fix your boot record:
/fixboot

In case your master boot record has been damaged as well, I would also run
/fixmbr

If that doesn’t solve the problem, you can also try to run the following commands to re-create your
bootmgr file. You are basically creating a temporary bootmgr file and then replacing it with the original
one:
Each command has to be on a separate line:
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h

I would also recommend to uncheck the option “compress to save disk space” for each hard drive and
partition. Mainly, because it can cause problems like this one and it is slowing down your PC
eventually.

Method 2: Repair bootmgr via “Startup Repair”


Theoretically, Windows 7 should be able to find and fix this error. If you click on “Startup Repair”
instead of Command Prompt, then Windows will scan your system for common errors and will
hopefully figure out that your bootmgr is broken.

Check disk for errors


Another error why you are receiving the “bootmgr is missing” error after installing Windows 7, might
be that your hard drive has disk errors. It is always a good idea to also run the command
chkdsk C:\ /f /r

This might take some time, depending on the size of your hard drive, but it is necessary to verify that
there are no corrupted files on your disk.

I received the Bootmgr is compressed error on my hp laptop. I recently upgraded to Windows 7
and I was compressing my C: and this is when all this chaos happened. I am trying to boot my
laptop up with my installation disk but for some reason my computer won’t take me to the boot
menu and shoots me back to that same error again. Any suggestions on what I’m doing wrong?

Hit DEL to get into the BIOS and change your boot order so that the PC will boot from DVD
FIRST. Please look into your motherboard manual to learn more about this.
Then your PC will boot from DVD and you can repair the bootmgr.

Dark Angels, please read this How to get into safe mode without F8.. please read your
motherboard manual too. Then when you know the key to get the list of startup options, select
Repair your computer and follow the rest above.

Thank you sOliver :D
The computer’s DVD Drive doesn’t open and the DVD RW drive didn’t read discs, but after
changing the boot order, it allowed to format the computer and re-install Windows XP.
