BOOTMGR is Compressed Windows 7

Hello guys,

I have a trouble I have never ever faced it!!
The laptop I'm going to install Windows 7 X86 on it is MSI CX41. But the very strange problem is this that it's second time I install Win 7 on it. Each time this message is appearing:
BOOTMGR is compressed.
Press ctrl+alt+del for restart
I don't know what the problem is.
I have done the works of here (BOOTMGR is Compressed fix - YouTube).

And also tried below way:

insert your OS CD
go to DOS window and type in your OS drive (usualy C:\) (here mine was F:\)
type in bootrec /FixMbr
then type in bootrec /fixboot
(In this step I got this message "The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted."

then type in bootrec /rebuildbcd
then type in exit
restart your computer

But couldn't fix the problem.
Please help.

Thank you for your reply. But because I don't have any credit card needed for purchasing the easy recovery essentials tool (because of my locale), I can't download it. And also I tried all the three Fixes (1,2,3) but no success unfortunately.

Can you boot to "recovery environment"->command prompt?
Code:
diskpart
list vol
exit
Which volume is marked system?
Code:
attrib c:\bootmgr
attrib d:\bootmgr
attrib e:\bootmgr
attrib f:\bootmgr
Which disk letter has file bootmgr?

The problem had to do with one specific (locale) software which I would install just after installing the OS. after installing OS it would work for first time but since I would install that app just after finishing the OS installation, the problem would occur for next times of starting the OS, so I simply reinstalled Win 7 and didn't install that app and problem became solved!

Thank you for your assistance. I appreciate it.

That would have nothing to do with Bootmgr is Compressed which happens when a box is ticked to Compress the files on C drive as shown in BootMGR Compressed Message at Boot Fix

But for programs that can't function correctly after Windows 7 install/reinstall: This is why it's important immediately after Windows 7 install to run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates - after enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) - because there are patches and Net Frameworks that may be required for a program to function correctly.

Remember that Windows 7 does not have SP2 which means it must be patched via Windows Updates before it is fully able to function correctly. You can update your Windows 7 installation media using Update 7 installation media - Windows 7 Help Forums however it takes about as long as running the Windows Updates so you may only want to do it if you regularly reinstall or install Windows 7.
