or older of the Rescue and Recovery software and running Microsoft
Windows 2000 or Windows XP:
Mine: ThinkPad R52
I have a newer version of the Rescue and Recovery software on my Windows
XP SR-3, 2.02.0178, but have exatly that problem
anyway after installing latest CYGWIN 1.7.4-1 while postinstall.
Is there any idea, what I alternativly can do ?

Aren't there any risks, doing that?
How to start the postinstall scripts manually ?
