Cooperative Linux/Arch disk check


I just installed Cooperative Linux (WIN32 port of the linux kernel) with an arch linux image.
Heres the anoyance :
I get
Code:
:: Checking Filesystems                              [BUSY]
/dev/hda1:
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a corr
ect ext2
filesystem.  If the device is valid and it really contains a
n ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the
 superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alterna
te superblock:
    e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

                                                     [FAIL]

*****************  FILESYSTEM CHECK FAILED  ****************
*                                                          *
*  Please repair manually and reboot. Note that the root   *
*  file system is currently mounted read-only. To remount  *
*  it read-write type: mount -n -o remount,rw /            *
*  When you exit the maintenance shell the system will     *
*  reboot automatically.                                   *
*                                                          *

Just a few suggestions:

(1) Try running the debian image to see if the problem is isolated to the arch linux image.
(2) Download the arch image and uncompress it again (you did uncompress it, right?) to rule out file corruption.

Hope that helps

I already did it the first time because the file was corrupted.
