But i am unsure how to boot up from the system repair disk.
so i tried to follow the directions given from the link in your post first.

I cannot even access the advanced boot options when i tried.

Ask your system administrator for further help.

For what it's worth, I contacted HP, concerning my issue. They walked me through removing the second Scan Disc program that was appearing. After it ran, they had me reboot and as it started, they had me tap F11 during rebooting, until I got a screen with several mode choices. I believe one was command prompt. when there, I entered chkntfs /x c: and Enter. Then rebooted. My computer no longer tries Scan Disc on booting.
Hope this helps someone. FYI: I am running Windows 7, 64 bit, Home Premium.

Hello, I have a bit of a problem. My laptop is strongly recommending i run disk check, but says it cannot run because of recently installed software and advises that i restore to an earlier point. When I try to restore it says the drive I'm trying to restore has errors and cant be restored. I have no idea what software is to blame because i haven't intentionally installed anything recently. Is there anything i can do?

Hello Nsbjsn, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use OPTION TWO in the tutorial to run chkdsk from a command prompt at startup to see if it may be able to repair the drive errors. If you do not have a retail Windows 7 installation disc that you can use to boot from to do this with, then you can create a system repair disc to use instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Rose,

"scandisk" goes by "chkdsk" now, so you can do either option in the tutorial on the first page of this thread to run it manually. Please let me know if you have more question about this.

Hope this helps,

Okay, I tried to post here but accidentally started a new thread by accident. New to the forum, sorry about that.

Anyway, I'm having significant problems running chkdsk. When I restart to try and run chkdsk, it doesn't run at all and the machine boots normally.

I attempted to repair it, using the methods outlined here. I was not able to replace the autochk.exe file as I was denied permission, despite being in the Admin account. I also attempted to use the SFC to repair, but it did not work. I don't know where my W7 install disk is right now.

Hello YoullNeverCatch, and welcome to Seven Forums.

That tutorial from Vista would never work with Windows 7 anyway since the autochk.exe files in it are Vista versions and not Windows 7 versions.

You could try running chkdsk from a command prompt at startup using a created Windows 7 System Repair Disc to see if it will run for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
