Is it normal for the computer to auto-reboot after Check Disk runs during booting?
And is this instance native to NTFS file systems? I recently moved to a new hard drive. My old one ran on FAT32, and wouldn't need to restart after chkdsk finished running during boot-up.

If the system doesn't reboot after chkdsk...how do you propose to get into Windows?

If I misunderstand the question, pardon my ignorance...but please explain what you mean.

Well, running on a FAT32 system my Windows XP Pro would boot up like this.

+ initial screens
+ XP boot screen
+ chkdsk screen
+ Log-on screen

But on the NTFS system my XP Pro boots up like this,

+ initial screens
+ XP boot screen
+ chkdsk screen
+ reboot
+ initial screen
+ XP boot screen
+ Log-on screen

I want to know if XP normally reboots itself after chkdsk has run, on an NTFS system, since it always went directly to the log-on window in my older system, or if there's something wrong making my computer reboot itself after chkdsk has run~

OK :thumbsup:.

With NTFS and XP, the procedure is normal. I've never known XP to do other than what you outlined in the second scenario.

I thought my computer was being problematic again. Yay.
