in windows recovery environment (boot from dvd)
list disk (how many do you see?)
Which volumes do you see and what is the purpose of each (not interested in DVD drives)?
Volume 1: is Ltr C: labeled as Recovery, Fs: NTFS, Type: Partition, Status: Healthy
Volume 2: Lrt: D, Label: OS, Fs: NTFS, Type: Partition, Status: Healthy
For the different disk checks I don't believe I found any errors.
