ChkDsk got interrupter during an unplanned scan. I left it continue but knocked the power cord. I remember it saying deleting ****** and now i cant boot. Safe mode is a no go. Half loads. My wireless keyboard does not like Fkeys and only got into safe mode once. Got a CD here that can gain access to recovery console but i know nothing about using. Any ideas before i reformat?

I assume i can create a new partition next to an existing windows and then move all my files across before deleting that partition?

I noticed ChkDsk can be found in the console. Ran it in the console and rebooted. Let the normal windows scan complete this time away from my power cord :D seems to be working fine again. Might be worth reading up on the console. Never needed it before.

Try running chkdsk /r from the Recovery Console, please.

1.Insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive (after changing the boot order in the BIOS to reflect the opical drive as the first boot device.) Reboot.

2.When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts. Select the repair option by pressing R.

3.Tyoe 1 to reflect the O/S that you want to work with, hit Enter.

4.When you are prompted for password, just hit Enter.

5.Type chkdsk /r (exactly sa I have typed) and hit Enter. The check will start, do not interrupt it. Upon completion, a summary screen will appear and no further action will be noted.

Type EXIT to reboot into Windows.

Did you run chkdsk /r from the recovery consoles (NOTE THE /r switch)? If not, please follow hamluis' suggestion and do so now.
