    I am running a dual-boot of Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2, and Windows 7 Ultimate. It is an AcerPower S285 and has 1GB of RAM, and an Intel Pentium 4 dual-core 3.06GHz processor.

    Just after installing Windows 7, I checked for updates (which there were) so I installed them with no issues. Then I'm asked to restart to complete the updating. But when it tries booting Windows XP (the master drive) it says "BOOTMGR is compressed, press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart."

    So I restarted it and put in my Windows XP disk to repair it, and its saying "BOOT DISK FAILURE, PLEASE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER."

    Now my disk is already inserted, so why would it be telling me this?

    I've also tried setting each hard drive as the highest priority, and the same with my DVD drive. But none of which are working.

    (Also if you were probably wondering, how am I posting this then? Well I'm on my laptop, but still highily dependent on my desktop as well.

    Please help if possible!
