"1-Create a Rescue disk set from partition magic
2-boot up from those disks and enable the windows partiton
PS: if you didnīt create the rescue disks, then you must install partion magic on a diff comp. to create those disks..."
I had the same problem as you ("autochk not found") after I tried to boot RedHat, Mandrake and Windows from Grub (or Lilo). My computer got all mixed up. I was unable to start Windows. I tried every possible fix before I saw Drogoīs post. Everything was fixed by following his advice. Partion Magic is a wonderful program!!! Saved me from formatting. Thanks Drogo!
