I had same problem an hour or so ago , Only thing i did was do a hard reboot ( then a quick remount of the ISO via my Vista partition.)

Sorry for being no help.

Yes, I did a disk check at reboot both yesterday and today. I had both of the boxes ticked both times, scheduled the disk check to run at start up, and then restarted my machine.

The steps I took were identical both days... I cannot understand why the run times were so wildly divergent, but I am getting used to it.

I've noticed that if you select to run Disk Check on a drive that Windows 7 is not installed on it runs faster depending on drive size of course. If you select the Windows 7 drive, then Disk Check will need to restart the computer to run the check at boot. This would take longer to run depending on drive size.
