Windows 7: Bug in Windows 7 RTM

Windows 7 Build 7600|16384- 64bit
 
 

Nothing a patch wont fix. Hell people shouldn't even be worrying about this since the OS doesnt come out till Oct 22, unless you are technet/msdn which i doubt you will rarely be caring about chkdsk once you get Win 7.


Just read an update.

After emailing back and forth with the VP Sinofsky, it was found that the chkdsk /r tool is not at fault here. It was simply a chipset controller issue. Please update you chipset drivers to the current driver from your motherboard manufacturer. I did mine, and this fixed the issue. Yes it still uses alot of physical memory, because your checking for physical damage, and errors on the Harddrive your testing. I’m currently completed the chkdsk scan with no BSOD’s or computer sluggishness. Feel free to do this and try it for yourselves. Again, there is no Bug.
Thanks all.


This is not an OS bug, but rather a fault in the generic controller driver specifically since MS can’t include all motherboard manufacturers controller drivers on the install disc. Simply update the chipset drivers, including your controller drivers and your chkdsk /r will complete without BSOD’s or system slowdowns. Hopefully, all motherboard manufacturers have the current drivers avaiable on there respective websites.

Not doubting your input, and I do have an update available for my chipset - but for an issue of this prevalence and web-wide lack of resolve, professionalism demands a source citation.

C'mon give it up - where did you find the reference?

Guess this bug doesn't affect me. My 2nd HD is an external that's formatted with FAT32.

A more direct link here.

I can only accept this at face value. I can't update my chipset for another hour or so - my beautiful wife is watching the virtual HTPC.

Anyone tested this yet?

If the problem is chipset specific, then why is it appearing across multiple, unrelated chipsets? As I mentioned before, I've tested this on two different systems - albeit both Intel based - as well as under VMware. The first two *might* be related, however, the VMware instance most certainly is not. It uses its own, virtualized chipset drivers which, AFAIK, have nothing in common with the one used by the host OS.

Note: I'm not succeeding in generating the blue screen as others have noted. However, I am seeing massive memory consumption - up to 1.7GB on a 2GB VMware session. Given that this same command consumes under 10MB on Vista w/SP2, I'd say it's a pretty big problem, BSOD or not.

Sorry, but I think this is a genuine Microsoft bug and not something they can just pawn off to an OEM as a driver issue.

chkdsk.exe has been a show stopper since the DOS days, rendering so called recovered files totally useless.

I don't understand why this is suddenly an item now.


I think the Graphics, Audio, Network and Gaming issues I've been seeing lately are of much greater concern.

I just ran it on both my drives and they both used the same amount of memory (500MB) and completed normally, using build 7600.16384 x64.

I have the latest chipset, so maybe that's why mine stopped at 89% and didn't crash.
