sfc /scannow not working!! server 2012

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by winservergeneral, Feb 18, 2013.

  1. Hello,
    server 2012 not booting. Power went out and battery didn't hold. Server got shutdown incorrectly.
    Was able to run chkdsk successfully, nothing concerning.

    Problem is sfc /scannow never works!
    sfc / scannow /offboot dir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows

    accessing from command prompt via booting from DVD.
    always get :
    "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service"

    what else can I try?

    Thank you,
    Ed
