I can't perform disk check even scheduling the task fails

Hello,

I'm trying to install Ubunut at the same Windows OS partition (i.e. C However, it seems that using "wubi" caused some problems to my partition.

I try to perform a check disk on my C: drive but it fails. It gives me the error "windows can't check the disk while its in use". So, I tired to schedule the check until after the reboot. Surprisingly, it fails too. after the reboot, when the timer runs out, it fails and gives me an error that reads "cannot open volumes for direct access...Autochk cannot run due to an error caused by a recently installed software package".

I also read few of the similar problems over here and tried some solutions, but non has worked for me.
for example, I tried running the "sfc /scannow" hoping it can do some fixing, but no hopes. I tried to perform the check disk again but the main problem still persist.

Now I want to be able to fix the problem, run the disk check, and get rid of any errors caused to my HD by the linux installation works I done.

Now depending on how you set it up depends on how it runs I always use the command prompt (Option 2) method see these I do them in that order as matter of routine

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html< if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

Done the system file checker and I got "no integrity violations" then ran check disk at reboot- as I can not run it due to the msg "drive being used by another user" and again the check disk fails

Here I attached my sfc scan result if that could help

Assuming you don't have an SSD, try running SeaTools.
Prefered first the SMART, short generic and long generic tests.

I have been trying to make windows repair since even system restore fails as shown in the attached image.
so I created a system repair CD- this is because my Asus comes with the Asus preload wizard that takes over the repair process whenever you choose the system repair option form the windows recovery menu- from within the windows and then booted into the CD but again I was faced with the Asus Prelaod wizard.

So after a some researches here and there I found the only way to get around that wizard is to go with windows ISO image- in DVD or USB- and boot into it just as if I'm going to install fresh windows.

After creating my bootable usb with the same windows version that I have (i.e win 7 HP 64) using rufus, and booted into the usb- thanx God this time I could escape the-freaking- Asus preload wizard. But unfortunately, I received the error "This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of windows"

I tried the UEFI solution but it didn't work too.

I don't know what to do next.

Sounds simplistic but did you run chkdsk in safe mode??

Now I know usually one doesn't run tests on a SSD but Seagate have this http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/005706en

While we are testing the drive assuming as axe said you do not have a SSD but a spinner you could test the physical state of the platters and to some extent the read/write actuated arms you can use Partition Wizard see pics MiniTool Partition Wizard | Best partition magic alternative for Windows PC and Server

Oh the specs please mate

System Specs. is done
I hope it can help

I tired going into safe mode but it fails, stuck at the screen where drivers and other stuff being listed-uploading. It then just go back to windows and start it normally.

I didn't run the Seagate tool as I don't have enough space on my ex. HD for the system Image-but it seems enough for the other things to be backed up. I do not know this system image how significant is it? any suggestions on this is much appreciated

Now I am assuming you can actually gets into Windows because you say it goes back to it and starts it normally.

Now if that is the case then if it were me I would be using this to a new and separate external drive Imaging with free Macrium because you may be looking at a reinstall This will image the system as it says and one can get back the data from it (see the little links at the bottom of that tutorial - more tutorials)

I am no expert and it seems to me you have corrupted the drive with the attempt at getting Ubuntu on board.

Now one ting yu can doo if you can boot into Windows is run these

http://www.superantispyware.com/

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/

delete any rubbish found with the malware scans

(NBIf one is running Kaspersky security it may rant about ADW - just ignore it ordisable Kaspersky while the ADW is being used)
If these do not find anything much then it might be worth a try with this Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 it takes a while but will scan for malware without involving Windows. Now I use a disk but you can use a USB stick it is a matter of preference.

If you are at all concerned you can use this to retrieve important data.

BOOTABLE UBUNTU

Make a bootable Ubuntu disk Download Ubuntu Desktop | Download | Ubuntu

Set the BIOS to boot from the optical when themachine boots it will show you a screen with TRY or INSTALL >select TRY not INSTALL

When it is finished - it takes very little time youwill get a screen like in the pic .

Open the drive you want > User and dig downuntil you get to the data / settings you may be able to copy / paste thematerial you want to an external source or other installed drive doing this.

I am not sure if it will but I have recovered tonsof data etc using this method both on "dead" or just plain drivesthat you cannot get data from using Windows.
