Unhappy HELP !! Can't go back to Windows XP !

Hi !!

I've installed Linux and Grub into Master Boot Record and now I can't go back to Windows XP. In the menu, I choose Windows, Windows runs, but then there's a message saying that can't find autochk. I don't know what to do. Please, help !!!!

I once had the same problem but can't remember the solution. Anyway, search in the windoze forums, you are more likely to find the solution there...

Do you know any Windows forums ??

I think this is a Linux/Grub problem, but I saw in the Recovery section after running the Windows XP CD with command map, that Grub halted the partitions table. There was no C:\ partition where Windows was... Why did he do this ??

Maybe you messed up the partitioning when you installed linux and wrote over your C:

I solved the problem by a boot disk...
