Hello !!

If the Chkdsk is not running the download the Hard Driver Diagnostic Tools from the manufactures website. Burn it to a bootable disk then run the Diagnostic. Follow this link for more information on it HD Diagnostic. Hard Driver Diagnostic Tools it more efficient that check disk.

Regarding the Error "due to recent software installation" check this article from Microsoft The Chkdsk.exe program does not start correctly on a Windows 7-based computer

Hope this helps,
Captain

I could not find anywhere in this thread that you said what version of Windows 7 you upgraded to (add that and hardware info to your My System Specs) but unless it's Pro then you will not be able to use the key you currently have with With a Win 7 Pro DVD.

Thx, I'll check out HD Diagnostic, seems like my Chkdsk mystery wont be solved.
I read the link you provided. I dont think that is my issue. The hotfix is for:
- A countdown timer is displayed and you are prompted to press any key if you want to skip the disk check. However, after you press a key, the countdown timer continues. Eventually, the system may stop responding at the count of 1, or start without performing the disk check.
- The countdown timer is not displayed and the disk check starts immediately.
- The countdown timer is displayed. However, the disk check starts before the countdown timer reaches zero.

My chkdsk doesn't work at all.

You can always try assigning drive letters to the two non-boot partitions, similar to what was done here:

https://www.sevenforums.com/performance-maintenance/87971-chkdsk-will-not-run-error-766f6c756d652e63-3f1.html#post761539

I know I said before not to do this but since nothing else is working, give it a try to see what happens. If it does work, unassign the drive letter when done.

You said you upgraded from Vista to Win 7. This is becoming a long thread, so I'll ask, do you still have the upgrade DVD or file you downloaded? If so, you can do a clean install using an upgrade DVD/downloaded file. Just back up your data first.

Since you do have a way to run chkdsk if needed, is it important enough to you to fix this at all costs, including a clean install?

.
Right click "Computer" and select "manage". Select Disk Management and right click on the partitions that you wish to assign drive letters to. Select "Change Drive Letter and Paths".
