This should fix things - you selected the compress hard drive option

# change BIOS to boot from the DVD
# Insert the installation DVD in your system and start the pc above.
# Click Repair your computer.
# Then click on Load Driver.
# Go to Computer.
# Right click on the partition your installation previously compressed> Properties.
# Then uncheck "Compress drive to increase space available".
# Then close all windows to restart the computer.

Good Luck
