    @goldie1: you have a kernel problem, this is a serious issue, and you may have other damaged system files. If I were you, I would fix the system files this way: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuReinstallation

    @all: some users reported problems (infinite loop at startup, strange windows..) after updating Boot-Repair yesterday. I think this is due to the fact that the PPA took several hours to build some packages. Now the PPA is ok, so you can solve the problem by updating the "boot-sav" and "boot-repair" packages:
    - connect internet, then type the following command in a terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair boot-sav
    Altenatively, you can use a Boot-Repair-Disk or Ubuntu-Secure disk.

    "BOOTMGR is Compressed"
    press Alt+Ctrl+Del to restart.

    @alokmandloi
    Yann knows Boot-Repair, but I see several issues, to get you started on fixes.

    Extended partition linking to another extended partition.

    sda3: _________________________________________

    File system: ntfs
    Boot sector type: Windows Vista/7: NTFS
    Boot sector info: No errors found in the Boot Parameter Block.
    Operating System: Windows 7
    Boot files: /grldr /bootmgr /Boot/BCD
    /Windows/System32/winload.exe /grldr

    /dev/sda3 fuseblk 75G 73G 1.9G 98% /mnt/boot-sav/sda3

    The sda3 (Windows 7) partition is still full. This can prevent to start it (e.g. you may get a Power Manager error).

    An error occurred during the repair.
    Any partition error will prevent a lot of system utilities from working. I think you may need to fix that first. I do not see the issue but it may just be the internal partition table linking of extended & logical partitions. Download this and see what it says about your table if it looks ok let it write the updates. Be sure to have the backup of the table first.

    First backup partition table, use your drive for sdX or sda, sdb etc.
    sudo sfdisk -d /dev/sda > parts_sda.txt

    You have either two files or folders /grldr which I think is from grub4dos. Are they there for any reason? Windows normally should not have those files.

    Windows NTFS partitions really need 30% free to work well. At 20% free they slow down and at 10% just about stop working. You only have 2%. Did you shrink Windows too much. I thought most utilities did not allow that???

    Hello
    @alokmandloi: please run Boot-Repair, click "Advanced options", tick the "Restore MBR" option, apply. Indicate the new URL. Reboot.
    - If the PC boots directly into Windows with no error, then that means that the "BOOTMGR is Compressed" error is due to a problem in GRUB (grub.cfg file), and we need to create a bug report for GRUB devs.
    - If you get the "BOOTMGR is Compressed" error, then the problem is located inside Windows partition, and I would recommend to follow Oldfred's suggestion to freed some space on the Windows partition. Also try fixing bootmgr via a Windows repair CD ("fixboot" command).

    In both cases, tell us what you observe, then use the "Recommended repair" to get back access to Ubuntu.

    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    Good morning all, I have a problem after using Boot Repair.

    I run and old version of Ubuntu 7.04 on a single disk machine. I also set up a USB drive to run the latest Versions to avoid messing up the original.

    However after running Boot Repair to repair the USB version 12.04 the original drive reports missing OS, Insert disk.

    So the question is can I Undo what I did using boot repair?

    King regards
    Greame

    @Greame: hello. B-R keeps backups of everything so yes you should be able to undo anything. But without more information I can't tell more. Please run B-R, click "Advanced options", then the "Backup partition tables.." button, save the ZIP file somewhere, then attach it to your reply, so that we know exactly what you did.

    Also, for information 7.04 is obsolete since 2008...

    A BIG THANKS to gdell, who helped improving the RAID function of Boot-Repair:

    @all RAID users: from now, Boot-Repair-Disk won't work for you, it will ask you to run Boot-Repair from a Ubuntu or Ubuntu-Secure disk.

    Exclamation Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    @all: sorry I uploaded a broken package 10h ago (boot-sav3.193ppa7 package) in the PPA. Consequence: text won't appear in some windows.
    Please wait for all new packages to be ready in the PPA (all packages should be green in this page), then update Boot-Repair.

    Thanks for the heads up, and for the priceless and utterly fantastic package. I can't tell you how many times this package has been the ultimate tool in troubleshooting and fixing problems. Outstanding!!!
