Windows 7: Chkdsk: endless boot loop

Chkdsk: endless boot loop

When I start the PC i see the windows logo like normal. then chkdsk is activated and runs through. However at the end it goes too fast that I can't read the result if it was successful or not. The screen turns black and then the computer reboots and the process repeat. No blue screen.

Boot disk is recognized properly incl size (checked in BIOS). I tried safe mode but there it just gets stuck while loading and the boot disk (intel g2 80 gb ssd) makes some noise, coil whine.

What are my options to be able to actually read the result from chkdsk?

I get following error (translated so english wording might be different):

Indexentry .nbattrs in index $130 of the file 274341 will be deleted

Then just on the next line:

Unknown error <696e647863686b2e e0b>.
The protocoled messages could not be transferred to the event protocol. Status: 50


starting safe mode allows block when \Windows\system32\DRIVERS\CLASSPNP.sys was loaded

FYI: Was not able to solve this. It clearly was an issue with a broken Windows install and not defective hardware. My OS ran on an Intel G2 SSD and it is somewhat known that unexpected power loss can lead to drive corruption. Combing this with the fact that at there currently are renewing "utilites" (natural gas, power,...) to on the whole street this seem the most believable interpretation of what happened. I re-imaged to an old backup from last November. Note that this is only the OS, so that is not that much of an issue expect for having to install some updates.

Chkdsk endless loop/bad HD
My laptops' HD has bad clusters which CHKDSK cannot repair. Can I clone the disc to a new one. The bad bit will of course be set in the new HD as well. Chkdsk will run at boot but as the disc is new CHKDSK will complete successfully. Right?? Håkan
