  1. I have installed Xandros onto a unit running windows XP Pro , the linux appears to work ok but when I try to boot into Windows the following happens :-
    I get a message "Autochk not found - skipping autocheck. It then tries to reboot with the same result and continues to going through this cycle.
    I used Partition Magic and that told me that the first partition was hidden.
    I do not want to re format the whole 8gb H/D if possible, so would be grateful to get some advice on what actions i can take to correct the fault.
    Thanks Roy. Melbourne Australia
