Hi, I've been running Windows XP on my MacbookPro's bootcamp. I just got the "Autochk not found...Skipping Autocheck" problem where it goes to that screen, then reboots, then goes to that screen again, reboots...in an endless cycle. I can't use PTEDIT because the only other partition on my harddrive is running OSX. What should I do?

Hi adm.cheezit, I'm in no way a Mac expert. While researching your problem I came across this fix. Now it talks about items that I'm not sure about since it is a mac. The one item it does say is this is for users using Mac OSX
Please if you are not sure then don't try this. I'm sure there will be a tech more familiar with your issue to look at this.

Boot into Parallels and uninstall SP3
Boot into native Windows via BootCamp
Downloaded and installed Bootcamp 2.1 Update, reboot
Install Windows SP3 Update, reboot
Install a few other patches/updates via Windows Update, shutdown.
Boot into OSX and start Parallels
Try booting the Bootcamp partition and if you get the autochk error.
Clear the Parallels info from the bootcamp partition via the Parallels Configuration Editor.
Started Windows in Parallels, hopefully this will give you no errors now

Just to be sure, reboot into native Windows again. to see if there are no errors.
Just to be more sure, reboot into OSX, run Parallels, launch Windows.

Again please don't do this if this does not make sense to you
