Windows 7: CHKDSK Occuring in Win 7 boot for Dual Boot win7/win10 computer

Hello, I attempted restarts after disabling hibernation in Win 10, chkdsk still occurs with win 7 boot afterwards. Is there something I'm doing wrong still?

Hi,
Yea sounds like you're still sharing data drives with both os's

So how are you selecting each OS ?

I've built W7/W10 dual boot systems where each OS was on a separate HDD, selected using F key one time boot menu. I got the chkdsk problem, which was solved by disabling W10 fast start.

AFAIK, if the OS's are installed oldest first in the standard fashion, you are presented with the W10 'select OS' screen, and there is no need for fast start disabling. It seems the OP is not using the W10 OS selector - 'wastes time' . . .

Hello, Yes. I'm still sharing data in the data partition between the two OSes, but not between OS partitions. Is that such a problem?

As for wasnotwas's question. I disabled the metro bootloader using easybcd, so that I get os selection at the windows boot manager (black screen with white words) like shown here: Dual Boot - Change OS Name in Windows Boot Manager

Like I said in the initial post, I disabled the metro bootloader as the OS selection seems to be taken after windows 10 is mostly loaded, and selecting win 7 causes the computer to shut down and restart itself afterwards before going into loading win 7. In addition, with the metro bootloader enabled, and win 7 being the default (which is how I'd like), the computer boots straight into win 7 without showing OS selection screen at all. However, with OS selection settings at default with the metro bootloader on, I noticed that chkdsk does not occur win each win 7 boot.

Is the metro bootloader selection doing something different in comparison to the windows boot manager so that chkdsk doesn't occur?

I think you've answered your own question.

If it takes a few seconds more to boot via the W10 selector - what's the problem, if the chkdsk business goes away ? This will be compensated when you use W10 - with fast start enabled, W10 will boot faster than with it off.

My preferred dual boot method is to install each OS on its own HDD (with all other HDD disconnected during install). Each OS then has its own boot sector. There is no W10 selector screen - OS is selected by choosing HDD at boot with F key, and any OS can be the default. W10 fast start has to be off in this scenario. The 'official' way uses the W10 selection screen with fast start on. Take your pick.

While it would be nice to use the method with two hard drives as you stated above, the computer I'm using is a SFF optiplex 760. There is only one hard drive slot available.
While the metro bootloader as you say doesn't cause the chkdsk to occur, it also does not allow me to use win 7 as the default. Doing so cause win 7 to boot automatically.

Is ticking off the fast start in win 10 power options useless? Is that why chkdsk still occurs on win 7 with metro bootloader disabled?

Hi,
As far as I've noticed sharing disks or partitions triggers check disk.
I'd just look into one of these and get 2.5 hdd's or ssd's for it,
Amazon.com: Vantec 2.5-Inch Dual Bay Trayless SATA III - 6G Mobile Rack (MRK-225S6-BK): Computers & Accessories

Sooner or later you'll loose data.
Last I shared the data turned into Raw
It was transferable data but what if it wasn't

From what you are saying, there is no point in doing dual boots since any data on partition shared will be damaged sooner or later. Might as well have two comps with different OSes. There's no point in getting such a tray for the comp since there are only two sata ports, of which one is being used by the disc drive, and only one normal sata power supply.

sigh... looks like there's really no way to have the dual boot configured as i would like.

I ran into that after installing Win 10 and not disabling fast startup.
Then Win 7 ran a chkdsk every time i booted it.

I disabled fast startup in Win 10.
I restored a Win 7 image from before installing Win 10.
So basically i never booted Win 7 with Win 10 fast startup enabled.
Win 7 doesn't run a chkdsk.

This is a triple boot PC with all OS's on a single SSD.
The only primary partition is the Win 8.1 partition with the bootloader.

I use a front installed hard drive tray (SATA) to boot my system from multiple Windows operating systems (Windows 7, 8.1, 10) on different SSDs. They all use the other data disks installed in the computer.
Once Fast startup was turned off in Windows 8.1 and 10, I have never had the system run Chkdsk.
