Default Re: chkdsk

Well being a little more specific would be nice.

What kind of error did chkdsk find?

A bad sector? It couldn't complete? It couldn't start?

Run it with the /f parameter then.

Start -> type 'cmd' (without quotes) -> right click -> run as admin -> in the console window that pops up type:
chkdsk C: /f /r
Press Enter and it will say it cannot lock the current drive and to run on next reboot. Type Y and hit Enter -> Reboot your computer and let it run through the check (it may take some time, depending on how big your HDD is).

Default Re: chkdsk

So no problem I'm guessing then, lol.

The "failed to transfer" message is fine.

I assume you're running chkdsk from recovery/repair rather than from within Windows. Just means it was unable to copy the logfile to Event Log.

Default Re: chkdsk

So you're having issues booting into Windows, not just with chkdsk?

You need to give us more details so we can help you if that's what you're after.
