Corrupt Disk!!! Help!

i dont understand what i manage to do wrong. i installed W7 on my laptop and everything went good (off flash drive) and after like 3 days of use i got a corrupt disk error from like 3 programs at once when i started up. okay, so i reformat and install this time from a mounted iso from vista that i wanted to dual boot with. went great and its working so far. i thought it was just a fluke thing and didnt think about it again. i then went and installed it on my desktop which is comlpetely unrelated to my laptop (amdvsintel idevssata asusvshp). went good, i installed off iso like before and after like 3-4 days it started doing the same thing!! i even avoided programs that i thought caused the problem. unless it was the iso i am using (how could it be, everything else downloads ok except for random corrupt disk problem?!?) i dont know wtf to do. i cant even uninstall programs without going into safe mode because they cant write to the temp folders for uninstall because its "corrupt". i thought maybe the original os might be a problem but the laptop had vista preinstalled and the desktop had xp.

Please post a screen shot of the exact error message. We'll then direct you to the event viewer to search for possible causes.

i tried to get as many errors at once to show the problem and i also included what programs i currently have installed. also i was thinking that if it were certain programs i was using then wouldn't more people be having this problem? i have only seen one other person on this forum with the problem.

go into safe mode and there

do a chkdsk /r /f

it should tell you that in order to scan the disk you need to restart

restart and it should bootup saying it will scan the disk for errors leave it there

it will take a few hours.....

just leave there

if you cant even load up to that point then follow here....

Startup Repair

follow this until you get to the system recovery options

go to command prompt then do a chdsk there....

i dont get it, i restart into safe mode and do the chkdsk and when it restarts to do it it says volume clean immediately and starts back into windows... and i dont have any errors! but i dont think its over, windows is trying to trick me into thinking everything is fine and dandy and next time i restart... BAM it hits me with its stupid friggin errors again. thats what happened to my laptop before i reinstalled! but thanks darkassain for the help!

hmmm

the best thing i can say is that is to wait until the public beta...
then we can see for sure if it is the disc or that your HDD's might be failing...

i had similar problems with disc corruption when i first installed the beta last week. i ended up deleting the partition, defragging, then remaking it again. after i installed 7 again, the problems stopped.

Sounds like the HDD is failing yes... Check the MD5 hash of the iso and then you will know if its the iso or not, the md5 for x86 build 7000 is: F9DCE6EBD0A63930B44D8AE802B63825

If you have no way of finding the hash, google hastab.. nice freeware app

most likely mft corruption caused by not allowing the windows 7 installer to create it's own partition. i do not trust third party partition managers to create partitions and format them for use with unreleased versions of windows. always let the windows installer partition the empty unpartitioned disc space you give it the way it wants to and then use the shrink volume feature in disc manager to go from there.
