I'm sorry to answer a question with a question -- but what problem
are you trying to solve by making this CD? There may be easier
ways to solve it...

Hi Donato--

Why in the world would you ned a boot CD to execute a chkdsk /R? It's a
piece of cake. What am I missing.

In Vista the only diff is that you have to do it from an elevated cmd
prompt>run as admin. In XP, you could get it done from the run box I
believe (I'm not on my XP boot and I rarely go there since I can shortcut to
the desktop anytime and reach any file.

Click Start>in search box type cmd>rt. click it when it comes up at top of
Start>run as admin>type in chkdsk /R which is the best chkdsk to use in
general. It will ask you if you want to run next boot Y/N and you type Y and
then if you like restart.

Why is it that you wanted a boot CD?

If you thought chkdsk could some how help you boot in a no boot situation,
you'd want to run Startup Repair or do a system restore or use one of the
many other ways I've posted countless times to fix a No Boot Vista anyway.

Forgive me if I missed something here.

Good luck,

CH

Obvious. Windows won't load fully. If he runs CHKDSK from a CD (with XP it could be
done with the Restore Console (Console de récupération, on my computer)

Basic clue:

1) ChkDsk /R implies suspected failing HD
2) HD-booted Windows ALWAYS writes to the HD
3) Most systems store all HD data in one doomed NTFS C:

It appears as if the original poster is aware of these issues, and
therefore wants to exclude HD errors BEFORE allowing Windows to
scribble all over the at-risk disk (think AutoChk, SR, etc.).

But ChkDsk /R is not a suitable tool for the job, because:
- it may test file system before checking disk surface
- it tries to "fix" things, without prompting you first

So you have a tool that tries to write file structure logic changes to
a disk that has not yet been tested to see if it is safe to write to.

It's better to test first the hardware, and only once you know that is
OK, the file system. If NTFS or > 137G, you're chained to ChkDsk for
the latter, but you can use HD Tune (free from www.hdtune.com) to
check the HD at the hardware level (ignoring file systems, and without
trying to "fix" things).

There's still the risk that the HD's firmware will try to "fix", but
you can check SMART details to assess whether this is already
happening before you do the "slow" surface test.

HD Tune needs admin rights to operate, which is a problem when run
from the Vista DVD's mOS mode. But it will work perfectly from a Bart
bootable CDR, so you could beg an XP user to build one of those.
