CHKDSK Information is missing...

Hi to everyone who reads this.

When I want do a CHKDSK on C, I get prompt to schedule this task the next time my pc boots, no problems here though.
But after booting up I don't see the CHKDSK-information displayed as it should in normal circumstances. My screen stays black during the CHKDSK Scan, whilst I believe the scan runs as it should be. I derive that thought from the fact that I had a disk surface issue, and after doing the CHKDSK scan the problem was gone.
So the only thing I'm lacking is the information while in progress.

Does anyone have a clue on how to fix that?

Thanks for your time and advice.

Best regards Carlo

Hello Carlo,

Did you change your boot screen by chance? Doing so results in a blank screen while chkdsk runs as boot. The information at the top of the tutorial at this link above can give more details about how you can use the sfc/ scannow command to restore the default boot screen to see chkdsk afterwards.

For now though, the tutorial below can show you how to read the chkdsk log to see what it said.

Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log - Windows 7 Forums

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Brink.

Yep, that's it, I use an thirth party boot screen.

Before I preform a chkdsk in the future, I'll do a sfc/scannow on beforehand.

No speaking of which, I noticed items that couldn't be repaired by the sfc/scannow app (with elevated privileges).
Even when I do a clean fresh install of the OS and imediately thereafter I run the sfc tool I see in the report that there are files that couldn't be repaired.
Any ideas on that, Brink?

Your help is appreciated, thanks for your advice, grtz Carlo.

Carlo,

Not sure why you would have a problem like that with a clean install of Vista. Are you using a retail Vista installation DVD, or some sort of slipstreamed or custom made DVD?

Normally, you could extract the files that SFC cannot fix from your retail Vista installation DVD to replace them with. You may need to take ownership and "Allow" your account "Full Control" of the file in your current installation before you will be allowed to replace it with the extacted copy.

Hi Brink.

I'm using a legal version that came with my HP machine, as you may know, or not, HP doesn't give a retail DVD of Vista with the purchase, instead we have to make Recovery Disks.
I don't think that I can extract files from that, can I?

Can you clarify on this?

I'm not certain if you would be able to (probably not), but you could give it a try to see if you may be able to. It will not hurt anything to try.

However, if you are not having any issues with the files that SFC cannot fix, then you do not need to worry about it.
