When trying to restart Windows I get to the XP opening screen, then a popup
box appears. It says "Autochk not found." then it restarts to the boot
No matter how I configure the settings, the CD drive, and the floppy drive
will not start either the XP disc, or the setup discs. I am also not able to

Pro, and the other has Ubuntu 9.10. I can start Ubuntu, but am not able to
get the PC to connect through the NIC to the modem. The program otherwise
In the selection screen in the boot process I can select either the Ubuntu
(the slave drive), or the Windows XP drive (the primary drive).
I do not wish to format the drive and lose my files, but I do need a method
to restore the boot process for Windows. I have a borrowed PC for one more
day. Afterwards, I may not be online.
I need the method to get Ubuntu to connect online, and/or the method to
get Windows to boot.

Thanks much for the quick info.

if the message "autochk not found" is displayed but your computer otherwise
completes the boot process normally, you need to remove Windows XP HotFix
KB824105 in "add/remove programs".
