A bit more information is most helpful to those of us who try to 'troubleshoot' your problems.
no problems--per se. as my post indicated, i ran chkdsk and saw the ram usage peak at 7.25 gb, then level off at 7.06 gb. i had another computer on and googled "how much ram does chkdsk use" to see what was up with that high usage. the articles i found stated that the 'bug' caused the users computer to use all ram until the point that the computer crashed. i stopped the check when i read that. i then ran the check by way of my installation disc.
as for the rest of your questions, clean install with vista home premium x64 installed prior, but the drive in question has never for its life had an operating system installed on it--it has always been used for storing media.
so to reiterate, i never used chkdsk to the point to even see if it would crash--i stopped about 5 minutes into the check when i saw the articles, then re-ran chkdsk from my install disc. i was just curious to know if there is this 'bug' as the article speak of. if not, then i can run (if needed) chkdsk from windows instead of from my install disc.
