NTLDR is compressed
The partition boot record found the critical system file NTLDR, located in the root directory, but the file is compressed and can't be used. Windows cannot begin without loading the uncompressed version of this file.
NTLDR is stored in the C: root directory as a hidden system file.
You can use Windows Recovery Console to fix a missing or damaged NTLDR file. First boot from your Windows boot CD/DVD. We recommend you use a version that matches the OS service pack installed on your system (i.e. if you have Vista SP2, use a Vista SP2 DVD).
For Windows 7/Vista/2008, go to the page 7/Vista Recovery Console . Using the option "Startup Repair" should take care of it.
