autochk.exe is in the i386 folder on your XP CD

or in the same folder on your hard drive

when you have booted to recovery consul at the c:\windows prompt type cd D: (assuming dis your CD drive)

at d:\ type cd d:\i386 at the d:\i386 prompt
type "chkdsk /p" without the quotes and hit enter
When that is done type "fixboot" and hit enter
"Y" and enter at the prompt
Then type "exit" and hit enter
The system will now reboot into Windows
