It would be helpful to developers if you could post the X server log
(/var/log/Xorg.0.log) created after the failure.
For example, use w3m to log into your webmail account and send a message
with /var/log/Xorg.0.old attached (works with gmail :).

Your windows partition should be recognized at install time and the proper
entry should be already present in /etc/fstab. You can add it yourself,
using something like this:
/dev/hda1 /media/windows ntfs uid=YOU,nls=utf8 0 0
(substitute YOU with your user name create the mount directory with "sudo
mkdir /media/windows" if it does not exist).
