(oftopic) An broken bug in Windows 7.
« on: October 16, 2014, 17:33:07 »
Have you heard about the infamous data compression in Windows 7, that basicaly ruins you're computer after you reboot it and find youreself seeing the message:

Quote
BOOTMGR is compressed.
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

Curse you,Microsoft! In Windows XP, data cmpression works fine without this acursed bug.

Is there any hope in fixing this problem, since i don't have an Recovery disk for this (i do have one for XP, but it woudn't work)?

Sorry if i have to post m troubles in this forum, but there is no other way.

Because the OpenMPT forum is the only forum on the entire internet where you could find the solution?

Just copying that error message into your favourite search engine will give you plenty of hints to choose from, e.g. this one that shows how can create a recovery CD e.g. on a friend's PC which also runs Windows 7.

Other suggestions include running a Linux live CD with gparted on it, since it can remove the drive compression.

How do I all know this? Well, I used a search engine. You should try it too. ;)

Well,...no. But it is if i search for an alternative that is nowhere to be found.

And i do have searched awhile, and almost all of the requires the Windows 7 Recovery disk (or te Vista one), with me having neither. It just sucks :(.

You can download various Windows versions for free and legally:

You can't activate them without a valid licence, of course. But one of them should be useful to solve your problem.

Uhm...yep. Me too. ;D

To Saga Musix:
Saga, do you mind posting an link to that wepside where you found that suggestion about gparted?
There is an little issue im having (that is that there is no option for removing the disk compression, even when i booted it and with everything set).

To Mr. Eagle:
Nice find Mr. Eagle.
And even legal and free, i might add :D.
I'll look up on WinRE :).
