    check disk problem

    I have an HP P7-1010 pc on which I installed a 2nd HDD to run Windows 10 beta. Installation went fine and I am using the boot manager to boot between the new drive with windows 10 and my old drive with windows 7. On the 2nd boot to windows 7 I get the message that windows has detected discrepancies on 1 of my drives and strongly suggests running check disk. It runs and turns up no problem and then boots to windows 7 hard drive and I get the BSOD. I try to restart windows 7 but it won't. I try several recovery methods and finally have success with restoring from a system image. I then reboot to use windows 10 and it works with no known problems. Later that same day I boot to windows 7 and windows runs check disk again. It finishes with no problems found and restarts and wants to run another check disk. At this point I shut down the pc and disconnect the new HDD with windows 10 beta and restart to see if windows 7 will start which it does with no message to run check disk. I have started windows 7 three times without a problem and now wonder what has the new HDD with windows 10 beta got to do with this problem. I would appreciate it if anyone has a suggestion.

    Could you try running it from the recovery environment?

    Power on and off your computer three times

    On the third time, your computer will boot into the Advanced Recovery environment

    Click Advanced Options

    Click Troubleshoot

    Click Advanced Options

    Click Command Prompt

    At the same command prompt, type the following then hit Enter:

    C:\> chkdsk /F /R /X C:

    This issue might have occurred when you do not have permissions to access the folder/ drive.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    How exactly are you trying to run chkdsk command?

    On which drive are you deploying chkdsk command?

    Step 1: Try the following steps to take the ownership of the respective folder/ drive and check if it helps:

    Right-click the C: Drive that you want to take ownership of, and then click Properties.

    Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message, if one appears.

    Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.

    In the Name list, click your user name, Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group.

    If you want to take ownership of the contents of that folder, click to select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.

    Click OK.

    You may receive the following error message, where Folder is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of: You do not have permission to read the co1ntents of directory Folder. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting
    you Full Control? All permissions will be replaced if you press Yes.

    7. Click Yes.

    8. Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and the folder contents.

    For reference go through the below article:

    "Access Denied" or other errors when you access or work with files and folders in Windows

    Step 2: I suggest you to follow the below steps to perform check disk:

    Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard, click Command Prompt (Admin).

    In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    chkdsk /f

    You may be asked whether to schedule this volume to be checked next time when you restarts (Y/N).

    Press Y key on the keyboard and press Enter key.

    Restart the computer and check.

    Chkdsk disclaimer: The Chkdsk (Check Disc) scan will try to identify and repair bad sectors found on the hard drive. Any data present on these sectors might be lost in the process. The computer can also go into a no boot state. Proceed at your own risk.

    Let me know if that helps.

    Kind Regards,

    A huge thanks to Charlie who gave me the fix for windows 7 going into check disk on every boot. I followed the directions in the link and it performed exactly as the link stated. At least 6-7 boots to 7 now and working great. Now I can experiment with windows 10!
