  1. Is your Windows Partition different than your boot partition? Did you compress your Windows partition? Please give more background about how you got here.
  2. I compressed my windows partition, I know it has a separate recovery partition.

    All I get when I turn it on is a black screen with the message BOOTMGR is compressed press CTR+ALT+DEL, all that does is go into the bios settings which does not help as I do not have a CD drive to load a recovery disk not that I have one anyway.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  3. You cannot fix it without a bootable XP CD.
  4. Can I copy XP to a memory stick & use that if so do I need the lot or can I just load the BOOTMGR.

    Please excuse my ignorance.

  5. That might work, but you must make the USB flash drive bootable.
