Everytime when trying to boot this notebook (Compaq), this message comes up and it stops. A friend in college had another friend who updated Vista Basic to Windows 7, and then this started. I've Googled 'LCEPF' and nada.

Anyone have ideas? BTW, I've used AV boot discs, and it comes up clean, also, I've hooked it to my machine and run chkds /r, and now it scans good. Still no change when trying to boot though.

At what point do you see that message? Can you boot to safe mode?

Immediately after the Compaq screen. No booting into safe mode.

After the upgrade were you ever able to get into W7? If so, what is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

Also, do you have a W7 dvd?

He brought it to me after a friend at school, "helped" him with it. No, there is no W7 disc. As near as I can tell, if it worked after the Windows 7 install, it didn't for long. While installing Windows 7, his friend wiped out the Restore Partition that had Vista Basic.

Have you ever seen the error message "LCEPF is compressed, before?

No, I sure haven't. If you can get hold of a W7 dvd you might want to try to boot to it and try the startup repair options. But to be honest I'm just guessing here.

ANYONE got any ideas? The message comes up prior to booting into Windows, after POST. Surely someone has seen this before? It won't boot to safe mode, last known good config., etc.

Someone? ANYONE?????
