I attempted to do a recovery on my gateway laptop (as I have done a few times before), when i went to restart like required i got an error message that said "NTLDR is compressed, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart. Once doing that I keep getting the same message.

After going through the posts on here I tried entering the commands listed and now I am getting a message that "invalid switch - -c" I am not sure where to go from here. Please help.

If you're running the attrib -c ntldr command, it looks like you have 1 too many dashes in there. Make sure you're running the bold command.

I only put in one dash in the command line. exactly what is the "bold" command?

The "invalid switch - -c" is the response I got.

The 'bold' command, is the command that I put in bold letter.

Are you running that command? Pay attention to the spaces.

I tried the steps in that other post and I am still getting the same message. I am paying close attention to make sure that I am typing the commands exactly as they are in the instructions.

Not sure what else I can do to resolve my issue.
