Well i've read around the net about the problem with booting windows xp because of an autochk program not found problem. the same problem has occured to my hard disk after i installed suse linux 9.1 personal, after having partitioned my hard disk using partition magic 8.0 now, all the solutions that i have found direct me to use the xp bootable cd--which i don't have. all i have is an hp recovery cd that has windows me on it, apart from other progs that would help recovery. i can access all the data on the windows xp partition by mounting it to /windows/C in suse linux but i cannot boot it. is there anyway to boot xp successfully....a solution that does not require an xp bootable cd? it is possible for me to download required programs and put them onto a floppy/cd but i'm not sure how to make it bootable. thanks in advance for help. i'm getting really desperate.
