Dual boot problems resulated "invalid boot sector checksum" something.
Short story: I installed Debian yesterday, latest version on my laptop. I had previously tried Slackware 12.1 which worked perfectly, but I never got internet to work. I also Vista on the same hardrive as dualboot. I have earlier installed Debian, but removed it for slack again. I also tried arch which I also removed.
So... Debian yesterday. Grub bootloader. I always use lilo for slack though. I can see vista in the menu options. choose it... computer thinks and ponders a while and i see the normal "microsoft... something..." before i can log on to vista. but i cant log on. instead i get some acer rescue menu. it cant find the reason for me not being able to start vista. and there is no rescue point available according to it.
so... i try to install slack, hoping lilo will fix it ;) hehe. i am not good with linux, you know. anyway... lilo works and everything... but i still cant log on to vista.
after trying to mount my win partition through linux to see if all is wasted or if the files are still there... it says it cant be mounted, check syslog. i am not good with reading syslog, but i see this:
invalid boot secot checksum
looks like a big problem! is there anyway for me to fix this so i can log on to vista again? really depressed because i have a lot of important stuff on my win partition (and about 50 hours playtime on oblivion :( )
thankful for help...
