Here's my problem:
While choosing to compress certain folders from within Windows 7, I marked the boot manager as 'compressed'. Now, when I try to boot, I'm not able to boot into Windows 7, or any other OS (I get an error:
bootmgr is compressed, press Ctrl+Alt+Del
to continue, which restarts the system and the same cycle continues.
I have a Windows 7 + open SUSE + Ubuntu 10.04 LTS wubi install boot setup. To complicate things, its a laptop, and the DVD drive is conked. Is there any way I can boot into any of my OS's? If not using a live boot, can I, perhaps make a bootable USB flash drive, boot into it and uncompress the boot manager ?
Note: I'm typing this from another desktop, and I do not have Windows installed on this.
