Windows 7: BOOTMGR is compressed?!? HELP!

BOOTMGR is compressed?!? HELP!

Hey guys just registered on this forum to see if I could find some help. You've probably heard of this error message "BootMGR is compressed." I know what this means, but here is the thing, I don't have my Windows 7 CD. So I have no idea what to do to fix it. I know I need to make a boot CD or something like that, but I'm not sure how.

Any help? I would so so so much appreciate it considering I have all of my school work on there and I have to have it by tomorrow.. ahhhh

Hello Dylan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition, this may be able to help. Just use your Windows 7 installation DVD or Windows 7 system repair disc at step one instead.
