I need to check my system disk C: for errors. This action is impossible when in Win XP so this is usually performed before the PC boots to OS. Unfortunately I can't force my PC to do it although I type Y (Yes) when checkdisk is asking me whether I want to allow the check before booting to OS.
I'm searching for some solution how to force the system to do it because it obviously for unknown reason doesn't work.
Entering regedit key for forcing checkdisk haven't changed anything.
Is there someone who can help?

PS: I'm suspicious for some problems / errors - wrong calculation of free space.

Apparently you can try this: "What works for me is to: Start>Run>msconfig>OK, click on the BOOT.INI tab and check /SAFEBOOT, click Apply>OK and Restart. After CHKDSK runs, your computer will come up in Safe Mode. You need to repeat the above again, but this time uncheck /SAFEBOOT. "
OK, I'll write you my story... laugh.gif

I've tried CiTay's suggestion. Unfortunately it forced checkdisk but posted that the file system is RAW and that it is not able to check it. Then it booted to Windows XP safe mode. Unfortunately there was just a black screen, cursor and safe mode noticements in the corners of the screen and nothing else. No keyboard shortcuts worked, no icons on the desktop, no main bar and Start button...

After couple of tries I've known that this is the end of that Windows XP installation.

I brought the HD to my friend's try to run check disk, it checked and possibly recovered any errors, but Partition Magic still reported errors and booting led to the same situation.

So I went to another friends and made backup of the data from my system disk C: although not everything was possible to copy, either for some problems with this NTFS partition or user rights (??? blink.gif).

So now I have Ubuntu Linux 8.04 LTS for more than week. I have couple of issues with the graphic drivers and settings, but I still haven't given up... wink.gif

@ Andavari: Anyway thanks for your PM > letting me know about new posts in this thread. smile.gif
