Windows 7: I can't perform disk check even scheduling the task fails

05 Nov 2015   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Personally, based on my humble knowledge and knowing what I have been installing on my PC as well as the on going issue, I see no reason of running the malware detection tools, I do appreciate all the help given I thank you so much ,so I just decided to reinstall my windows after making image using Macrium,its very helpful piece of software thanx.

But before I progress I have something to ask regarding the partitions I have currently on my system as from the attachment you can see that I have :

  1. C drive that's my windows partition
  2. D drive is my non-system partition I use it to store my data.
  3. U & K drives are created by me when I wanted to install Ubuntu & kali-linux as well as the 2mb partition-I guess I made it to be the /swap for linux.
  4. The 200 & 24.41 mb drives are what exactly I want to ask about. Now that I want to reinstall win. what would happen to these two drives.So far, I know recovery partition is meant to be used by windows, but what about the other 200mb drive. bottom line I want to know which of these to keep and not tamper and which one I can claim its space and use it, instead of just sitting there unusable.
  5. there also one drive that makes a space of 128mb, which only macrium shows it but not seen at the disk management, macrium says its "system reserved partition"

P.S I found that my HDD is SSD so running seatools is invalid, therefore I didn't run it

Ok well it is up to you re the malware scans and the U and K are partitions not drives - I stand to be corrected of course. In that case then I am just assuming that as the drive is just one drive with different artitions Windows is chasing it's tails as to what it is supposed to be checking. If those othr partitons have nothing in them then yes it should run a chkdsk on the drive.

Now the Seatools test is available for SSD's I thought I linked that but if you don't want to use it it is your choice of course.

So maybe I shall refer it to more help as I am just chasing my own tail here.

Hello here goes what I have been working on to solve the problem.

1. I tired burning Win7 hp 64 on my USB and boot from there but in this case the setup wizard after clicking the (install now) I get the error "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. if you have driver floppy disk....ect" I found some people have tried some solutions such as killing the installation here and goes back to the previous step and change the USB port.However, this did not work for me.
2. I changed the my pendrive and also changed the software to makes the bootable USB but no luck yet, still getting the same error.
3. I have guessed it could be my pendrive causing the problem. So, I get myself a DVD and burnt win7 into it and boot from there but this time it is the missing drive error has gone, sighhhhh. Wait, not party time yet buddy, I have a problem in proceeding with the installation after the step where I select the drive to be used. the "where do you want to install Windwos" wizard shows me for every partition that I can not use that specific-highlighted-drive partition to install Windows. The reason-as it show- is that partition is of GPT partition style. This is even with the "C:" partition where Windows originally is installed.
4. So my last resort was to submit to "Asus Preload Wizard" which I thought it wouldn't help me in the first place by only factory resetting my laptop.
But I try the first option from the wizard list of options and now my laptop is back to normal state

I would like to thank you for the help and suggested solution-though non worked and some not been tried- but I learnt a lot.

I hope this "lengthy" reply in particular and my post in general would be of benefits of other users.

Well mate at least it got fixed and I often wonder at soem of the fixes because at times the fix seems to have no relationship with the problem.

A good example is my main desktop suddenly lost the use of the USB ports and it turned out to be the Samsung Magician software for the SSD that needed to be uninstalled and bingo it worked. Now it just so happened that another member had seen this problem before and as soon as I sent details of my hard drive he picked it straight away. But as I say the problem would still be in situ because I would never have thought a hard drive software would take out the USB ports!!

Yeah man I'm so happy- though I have to start again installing all my applications that were gone and the frustration I had over the past weeks.

And yeah I totally agree with you. An unexpected problem hits you, basically for simple thing you did, that you are pretty sure in the worst case, if a problem happened it wouldn't be as catastrophic as what hits you. and an unprompted try simply does better than all professional tries.

On Startup Windows 7 wants to perform a disk check on 'C Drive'
