    Please help me !!!

    Yesterday I installed Suse Linux 10 and Grub on MBR. Everything went ok. I rebooted the system, selected Windows, Windows runs, but at the end, it shows a light blue screen saying this message:

    autochk program not found - skipping AUTOCHECK

    then he reboots itself.

    I put the Windows XP CD, gone to the Recovery section and discovered that the file autochk.exe exists in foulder Windows\system32. I can't understand why he can't read it anymore.

    Meanwhile, with comand map I saw the partitions table and there was no C:\ anymore. Why did GRUB do this ???

    Please help me. Otherwise I will lose everything :( :(

    I solved the problem. I was using Boot Magic from Partition Magic has my primary dual booter from Windows before installing Linux and Grub. I had an old recovery disk from Boot Magic and everything got to normal again. I'm so relieved. :)

    I hope administrator won't forget this problem, because it could happen to many more people.
