BOOTMGR is compressed

Hey awhile ago i tested a Activator program on my temporary OS (im planing to install a genuine version next week) but when i reboot my screen displayed 'BOOTMGR is compressed Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart'. So i follow the instruction but my laptop will always display the same message over and over again. I found at the net that i need to repair install but my iso was on the OS and i cant even get them (no disk drive so im using usb).How can i fix this cuz i need to use my pc on Friday?

Do you have another OS (so other win7 instance or VISTA) on that laptop as well? Or do you have a win7 system repair disk or win7 install dvd?

Only thing you have to do is:
boot into recovery environment and select right win7 instance. Then enter "command prompt" and do:

bootrec/fixboot

Do bootrec/fixmbr
as well... not sure if it's really neccesary

What do you mean by "system image"?

What is your question exactly? You wanna install using usb drive?
