My xp pro os wont boot after running chkdisk at startup.. It checks the disk says ''clean'' then acts like it is going to boot up windows but just hangs there indefinitely .. tried safe mode and it hands...


Open XP in safe mode with command prompt.

Open a command window (start/run type cmd in the box then enter) and you will get the following.

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

You will then have a flasihg curser after

C:\Documents and Settings\PC name>

Type

CHKDSK /f /r

You will then get

C:\Documents and Settings\PC name>chkdsk /f /r
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.



Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N) y

This volume will be checked the next time the system restarts.

C:\Documents and Settings\PC name>

Type exit and restart.

make sure there is a space between each / and the previos word/command

The /f and /r do the following

/f: Fixes errors on the disk. The disk must be locked. If chkdsk cannot lock the drive, a message appears that asks you if you want to check the drive the next time you restart the computer.

/r: Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information. Again the disk must be locked.

Install XP, it hangs up with the message at the bottom ''Searching for previous versions of Microsoft Windows'' please help


Windows installer always formats the disk after checking the previous installation. There are two ways to overcome this problem. One, if windows still boots, then insert the installation disk in the drive and let it Auto Run, and ask you whether you want to upgrade the OS or install new. If you upgrade then the formatting will not take place as windows knows that there is already a window on the disk. But should you want a new installation then it will do all the checking and may hang again. So, upgrade. Two, dl you have a DOS bootup disk. If yes then boot up with DOS boot up disk and format the HDD with it. once it had formatted and windows checks up, let it. It will not hang now. as there in a very clean HDD.
