It doesn't say /f. I'm assuming it's just chkdsk.

I'm thinking it is an /f chkdsk. I ran it through the C: disk drive, properties, then tools and error-checking.

ok cool it would have said at the bottom of the chkdsk screen, and it times out then boots to windows- no worries the sfc will take some time as well

Tried to run sfc /scannow and it says files that are required for windows to run properly must be copied to the DLL Cache.
Insert your windows XP Professional CD-ROM now.......which I don't have.
