I had WinXP installed and I wanted to dual-boot to Slack - I've never used XP but we had it so I figured it was time. My roommate's even more computer illiterate than I am, so I have to run some sort of Windows for her. Anyway, I created my partition, installed Slack into it and everything seemed to be working fine. . .
But Lilo recognized the Windows without my telling it to, which I thought was cool, except now it won't boot into Windows. It errors out saying that it can't find the autocheck and another file, whose name I seem to have misplaced at this moment...
I am having a similiar issue only my boot loader is grub. I edited grub.conf to see windows. But when I chose to boot to wondows it of course crashed as yours did, AND it screwed my mbr all up so that Linux greub was no longer there or being used upon a reboot...aka no option to boot to linux. So I reinstalled grub and now I have linux again, but no windows...on top of that my usb(and only mouse) stopped working altogether.
