first i had the "diskette drive 0 seek failure" so i put my first boot device to harddisk and disabled onboard FDC controller, as suggested on this site.. now i have the error message "BOOTMGR is compressed press ctrl+alt+del to restart" and it just keeps saying that over and over.. what do i do???
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.
