So my laptop has been having problems lately and so my best friend sent my the file to his Windows 7. So i could run it on mine and restart my comp since he lost my vista disc. Well i ran the setup and while it was restarting it came to a window saying BOOTMGR is compressed and for me to press CRT + ALT + DEL. So i did that and it starts to restart and comes back to that. It wont let me start it in safe mode or anything what do i do? I dont have the disk so im at a lose. I looked around on here and saw everyone saying use the disk. =(
BOOTMGR is compressed(19 posts)
BIOS (Basic Input Output System) Before windows starts, the first splash screen. BIOS setup program is entered with a key, usually F2, DEL, or ESC, hit as the first screen comes up.
No it just pops up with Ctrl + alt +del. The onlything the comp will let me go to is the Boot menu (i believe thats what it is). When i press F2 if gives me the menu and then F12 gives me the mode thing but pops up with the C drive or toshiba and Lan i have tried all three and they all come up with the compressed message.
Ok so when i go into the setup which is PhoenixBIOS untility, The options it gives me are Main, Advanced, Security, Others, Boot and exit. In main the only thing that i think would be of any use is BIOS is version V1.50, Advanced only gives me the option of enabling or disabling and then there is the Dynamic cpu mode. Security is just passwords, Other is just alarms and then there is boot which i can enable or disable the devices. There is the built in one, A FDD, A LAN and then the CD/DVD matshitadvd-ram. I hope this helps.
I dont know but i got a xp disk from a friend and installed that but now im stuck at the product key thinking they sent me that to but the didn't and dont know where it is. =( From one problem to another. LOL
