I updated some of my machines, but one just will not do it. Someone recommended to run chkdsk.
So my machine initially said that there are no errors; that I don't need to run chk dsk. When I ran it anyway, "Windows found errors on the drive that need to be repaired. Close this dialog box and then repair the drive."
Typical MS completely unhelpful information. It's like being stranded in the desert - no useful info whatsoever after this.
Any clues?

Did you run chkdsk without switches? You need to run chkdsk /f to make corrections to the file system. That will require a reboot.

Have you tried DISM

Click start scroll down to the bottom click windows system right click command prompt and choose run as administrator once open type DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

You will need to restart and run again to make sure if it does find anything it is fixed


Also how to run a sfc scan as they say above

 Click start scroll down to the bottom click windows system right click command prompt and choose run as administrator once open type sfc/scannow and press enter it may take a few mins and once done will tell you if it has found any corrupt files. If any problems are found you'll need to restart for any repairs to be made and once restarted you'll have to run sfc/scannow again to see if it has fixed the files sometimes it may take a few goes to fix anything.
