Okay, so I'm in my Recovery Console. When I try to run "chkdsk", it gives me an error saying that it can't find "AUTOCHK.EXE"

Does anyone have any clues as to what this means, or how to fix it?

Either the file is missing or corrupt. If I remember right you don't have an XP CD so sfc /scannow probably won't work for you.

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

Read the second part about the i386 folder, when you don't have the CD
