Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

NTLDR is compressed

\015 I have an e-machine and did a non-destructive recovery. On restart I got the following:\015\012\015\012Press F11 to start recovery\015\012NTLDR is compressed\015\012Press Ctr/Alt/Del to restart\015\012\015\012My OS is WinXP Home SP2. I was told I could enter a command prompt to "decompress" the NTLDR file but I can't get to a screen where I can enter anything. I have some very important files on this pc and don't want to do a destructive recovery.\015\012\015\012The day I set up the computer (2 years ago)\302\240a recovery disk was made according to the instructions that came with the PC. I have this disk and have tried to restart from the disk and from the hard drive but I keep getting the same message.\015\012\015\012Any suggestions short of shotgun therapy for the thing would be appreciated.\015\012\015\012Lorie\015

Try this:
Insert\015\012the Windows CD (the oryginal one) into the CDrom drive, and restart tyour PC. When the compter bootsagain select an option that are\015\012required to start the computer from the CD if you are asked to do so. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. When\015\012prompted type "1" or if you have a multiple-boot computer,\015\012select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER. Now you should be at the comman prompt and ready to repair the ntldr file. Now all you need to do is enter the following commands (in order) and each command on a new line just like you see them here:
cd \\
attrib -c ntldr
The PC should reboot now and everything should work just fine.
The best way to solve this.. if yo operating system is xp home edition.. insert an windows xp professional cd and install xp professional on c drive.. do not format c drive.. install xp pro in<windows****> **** meaning type anything. eg windowskasafya?..which means you will have two operting systems on your harddrive.. you are good 2 go.. when done reboot.. and choose boot with xp home edition.. backup yo data and then format yo harddrive if needed?.. works 100% for me..
