chkdsk does not run at startup

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Performance' started by Windward Tech, Jan 14, 2008.

  1. I have tried run chkdsk /f and chkdsk /f /v as an administrator. I have
    also tried through the tabs in My computer. I select the option to run
    chkdsk at startup but it bypasses an goes right into windows. Is there
    something I am missing. I really need to fix this because I am getting
    errors in the Log saying I need to run chkdsk.

    Thanks,

    I have the same problem. I have had it 4 times before actually. (On a new
    Sony VAIO CR none the less).

    I have just faced this problem with a complete reformat. The problem has
    been debilitating before. Sorry I am of no help, just in the same boat!

    Hi Sanctus,

    See if one of these methods will work for you.

    I have the same problem on a Lenovo 3000 N100 notebook preloaded with Vista
    Home Premium. None of the suggestions from the mentioned link work.
    IBM/Lenovo says it is a Vista problem with no solution. There is no Vista
    disk as they only use recovery partitions now that only restore an image of
    the initial system. I need help if anyone has suggestions.

    Hi John,

    Do you have a friend that you can borrow their retail Vista
    installation DVD from to perform this? (METHOD TWO, OPTION THREE)
