Check of Win 7 partition with chkdsk from WinXP-BootCD possible?

Assume I want to check the partition NTFS integrity of a Win 7 system from a BootCD with WinXP.

Is this possible?

Or is the WinXP chkdsk utility outdated and NOT usable for Win 7 NTFS systems?

Use command prompt and type chkdsk as administrator. It's been around for a while. :)

Ok, I know how to use chkdsk.

The question is if WinXPs chkdsk is compatible with Win7 NTFS
