Boot your Windows Disk - (assuming XP) load up into the Recovery Console, choose which Windows version to fix (should only be one), and from the CLI it gives you, type:


Follow the instructions.

Then do:


Exit, and reboot.

That should now boot into windows, but with no option to boot into Slax - simply reformat the Slax partition under Knoppix or the Slax LiveCD, and try again.
