    Event Viewer to include the HDD SN in event logging


    Hi!

    Ima use event viewer as a logsource, but sometimes it will happen that I will need to switch the HDD with other laptops (drivers will be included so I can run the HDD on every laptop). But the goal is that even though i switch laptop i want to see the HDD SN in the event logs.

    How can i make a view in event viewer to also show the HDD SN in every log? creating a XML or is it not possible at all and need to have a 3rd party software?

    Thx a lot

    :)
     

  2. there are no chkdsk logs in event viewer

    i have run a few chkdsk commands on my hdd and on a few usb sticks, however i can't find any log in the event viewer regarding the chkdsk output.

    the commands complete successfully (as i see in the CMD window), it's only the logs that never appear in the event viewer.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    As you have mentioned, you have performed a repair installation on the computer and you see Event 508, 510 and 533 in Event Viewer.



    I would like to inform that if you see any critical error in Event Viewer, please share the event logs with us to help you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps. Please follow the steps mentioned below to share the event logs:



    1. Press Windows + X from the keyboard, select
      Event Viewer.
    2. Expand Windows Logs from the left pane and select
      Applications.
    3. Click Filter Current Log from extreme right pane. Then in the new windows check the box beside
      Error and click OK.
    4. Now, look for a critical Error in the list and note down the message/information from the
      General Tab in the lower section.
