Windows 7: Check disk will not run

Check disk will not run

Hi guys
Im still unable to get chkdsk to run on reboot.Tried from cmd and from disk options.I just get the countdown screen on reboot then at 1 it loads windows as usual.Have tried to run from recovery console but chkdsk c: comes up as volume label is SYSTEM RESERVED !! which i dont understand at all because the only labelled partition is the main acer c: drive.Anyone else suffering from this problem.
The laptop was shop bought and pre installed with the OS.
Any help i would be grateful
thankyou

From recovery console? You mean you booted into WinRe and ran it from there?

Drive letters are different from WinRe. Probably find your main windows partition is D from there.

Check it out.

Boot to command prompt, type:

diskpart

lis vol

( see what the drive letter allocation is )

Hi Danny,

It is the other way round. Why would it "know" what is inside your installed version? The drive letters assignment for your installed o/s is listed in it's registry.

The mini version of windows you booted up doesn't automatically know what is in your installed o/s. They are separate.

You appear to have a problem with chkdsk, this may help: Check Disk - Reset

Had a look at reg entries and mine are correct downloaded file anyway and merged.Tried chkdsk again and same result countdown to 1 and windows starts arggghhhh so frustrating.I only have the one drive am i right in thinking it has to be done on reboot because the drive would always be in use.Any other ideas thanx mate

You should be able to run it by booting the recovery cd to command prompt.

like this:

Check disk will not run-chkdsk-pe-1-.jpg

Check disk will not run-chkdskpe-2-.jpg

Type y , then press enter
Check disk will not run-chkdskpe-3.jpg

off she goes
