I have an hp pavillion 724c..using XP home...the system has internal locked
recovery tools. The system crashed and I ran the system recovery..now it will
not reboot..i get the error message "NTLDR is compressed..Press cntrl+alt+del
to restart"...all that happens is I get the same message again and again and
again. I purchased the system thru private parties and there was no software
included with it. I have been searching for help with this for over a week+
and have found no solutions. Is there anyone out there that can help
me..PLEASE!!!!

Handling the "NTLDR is compressed" and "NTLDR is missing" error messages
with the BootMaster Windows XP & 2000 Rescue Disk
http://bootmaster.filerecovery.biz/appnote6.html

HP Pavilions that ship with Microsoft Windows XP do
not come with Recovery CDs. Instead, they use a hidden
space (partition) on the hard drive to store the recovery
information.

Read the following article thoroughly, then follow
the steps outlined to perform a "non-destructive"
recovery operation.

If a "non-destructive" recovery will not work, then you'll have
to resort to a "destructive recovery" which will reformat the
drive, thus wiping it clean of all files before Windows XP is
reinstalled.
