    bootmgr is compressed


    Hello,
    I am really hoping that someone can help me with this 'bootmgr is compressed' problem that I am having. Windows did some automatic updates on my HP laptop about 2-3 weeks ago and now my PC will not boot. It just reads 'bootmgr is compressed' press cntrl alt delete to reboot. I have read online that this is a common problem but I cannot find how to fix it on windows 8. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello szim, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You might see if the tutorial below may be able to help, but boot from your Windows 8 installation DVD/USB instead.
