1. First of all, boot from your retail Vista or Windows 7 installation DVD, or from you bootable Vista USB or Windows 7 USB installation thumb key.
NOTE: If you do not have a retail installation disc/image, then use google to find one or look here for W7 or Vista ISO images

2. Now you use disc or usb drive of OS to boot..
NOTE: If it says BootMGR is compressed while booting Windows CD, then go to BIOS and change the Boot Priority, so that the disc Drive or USB is checked to load before HDD
3. When you boot on Windows CD has completed to menu choose language etc then select Repair your computer.

4. Select your OS, and click on LOAD DRIVES.

5. A box should now appear. Click on Yes.

6. After that, navigate back to the local drive C: , and right click on it and click on Properties and the Advanced tab.

7. UNCHECK the Compress this Drive To Save Space option, then repeat this again to see settings have changed.

Don't compress harddrive same way in future, really about time MS made this issue a bugfix report ...

That Roxio utility is darn near impossible to get from Roxio. Jumped through hoops for days to get it from them.
