BOOTMGR is compressed !!!!

I booted my computter last night only to find that a message appeared " BOOTMGR is compressed, press CTRL+ALT+DLT to reboot"
I haven't used my computer for a while as I was at a relatives.
I do not have a installation disc, As I bought it online and was given an .iso file.
I thought things through and decided to come t the public library with my mothers laptop to download a system repair disc x86.
I can't make one using my mothers computer as it is a x64-bit OS.
Will tis work if I use poweriso to burn the repair disc to an empty Cd/DVD?
Pleaswwae help me I have a lot of work to catch up with. Thanks a bunch

Hi Sheesey,

I think you need to read the walk through, if you use a startup repair disk properly it will analyze and fix any boot problems.
Not following the instructions will take you to the new install screen in which you can only format and install, if that's the case you've gone too far and not folloed the guide.
