Like a moron I compressed my hard drive, I've done this before with Windows XP and nothing bad happened but now I'm on Vista and something has. I get the "BOOTMGR IS COMPRESSED", "Press CTRL, ALT, DELETE". And well it goes around in circles doing the same damn thing. I didn't get any disks at all with my PC, I just bought it off this guy and Vista was already on it. So yeah I googled and that for help. Tried pressing F8 at the start up but I get the same messages. I've downloaded these "Windows Vista x86 Recovery Disc" & "Windows Vista x64 Recovery Disc". One runs but tells me that my PC is too lame for it. The other does the "Windows is loading files" and then just hangs on a black screen for 10 or so minutes. So what should this moron do? Obtain Vista? Any other Windows? I also really don't want to lose any info on my hard drive either, I'd rather buy a new PC than do that.
