What does this error indicate? It happens immediately on trying to boot (before the logo).
I had a nasty crash which caused a lengthy CHKDSK to occur. After reboot, the entire \OS2 tree was under 'lost+found'. After renaming ALL the files and directories (ugh - booted from CD) I was able to reboot after rewriting the MBR. BUT... next time I booted, it ran chkdsdk again and I had to rename everything again - it appears to remain dirty even after chkdsk (even though it is marked clean). This time I zipped the OS2 tree for the next time...
Next boot, sure enough chkdsk ran again and the OS2 tree was put into lost+found again. This time I unzipped the saved OS2 tree into a new \OS2 directory (while booted from a CD) and rewrote the MBR. After rebooting I get the above error. The file system appears to be clean and all files are available.
Boot has't this error. This has:
