  1. Chkdsk Logs Partition?

    Recently I've decided to clean out my Lenovo hard drive from 4 years ago. I noticed Several OEM partitions taking up lots of space( 75GB in total.) So after I deleted a few, there remained one which was only 350 MB which I was not able to do anything with( when I right-clicked on the partition in disk manager, the only option which came up was "Help",) and was in between this 75 GB of unallocated space and my primary boot partition. What this means is,(to my knowledge,)you can only extend your primary boot partition into unallocated space if the unallocated space is represented immediately to the right of the boot partition in Windows Disk Manager.

    So, I changed the partition (in cmd) to a "Basic Data Partition"(using the GUID code/label). Inside of this partition, I found the logs(results) of chkdsk (checkdisk) commands I had run 4 years ago. I figured I would move this to my boot partition temporarily, delete the partition with cmd, assimilate the 75 GB into my boot partition, and then recreate the OEM partition which this was stored on( I figured it was important that it be there.) However, I was not sure what GUID(partition type code) to use to switch it back to the proper type of OEM partition so that windows would know to put the chkdsk logs there. Does anyone know what it is? P.S. If you read this, please just post in the replies that you read it, even if you don't have the answer.

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

  3. How do I run CHKDSK on EFI System Partition?

    On Windows, I used DISKPART to assign the EFI System partition a letter. Fired up DISKPART, and typed LIST DISK to find the disk, followed by SELECT DISK <N> (where is the drive number). Followed the same steps to find the proper partition (i.e. LIST PARTITION followed by SELECT PARTITION <N>), and then simply typed ASSIGN LETTER = X to have Windows mount the partition to letter X.

    Then opened CMD with administrative access. Ran CHKDSK X: /f /r

    Then, I tried installing Ubuntu once again, and it installed successfully!

    • Open an elevated CMD type sfc /scannow and hit Enter to run the System File Checker.
