Maybe someone can offer a copy of the relevant directories? I'd double check the value to make sure you don't have a type... I have first partition NTFS with installed Win XP, but after short message Installing Express gate, computer continue with booting up regular OS. When I make the same on SATA harddrive, Express Gate works properly. I didn't get that error - did you remember to set the UUID?The easiest way to do this is by booting into Ubuntu Live CD then using a partition manager such as GParted which you may need to install first. It will create a file named 'splash.idx' and two folders named 'ASUS.000' and 'ASUS.Be very careful not to make a mess of your existing partitions. Reboot into your Ubuntu installation and obtain the Express Gate installer from Asus website which will usually have the latest update. SYS' in the pseudo C:\ drive of your Wine installation. Mount the NTFS or FAT32 partition that you created earlier if you need to (usually you don't - it should appear in your file manager by default).
