Chkdsk on SATA-winxp
I cannot run chkdsk from winxp-recovery-console using winxp-cd. sata-drive is not recongnized.
how do i get to dos-prompt? within windows: no chance
I must repair a data-partition. thanks
I could finally run chkdsk in save mode. partition c was scanned at startup afterwards.
If you want to scan a special drive (SATA, SCSI) with the CD, you must load the drivers for it while loading the command prompt. You do that the same way that you load Windows - press F6 to load 3rd-party storage drives.
during installation-after F6 i had to press Z and then driver was asked on Afloppyfrive). my sata-files SI 3112...are 1.63mb. what now?
Main question is: How do i prevent my system starting chdsk at startup?
will redo the steps here:
I'm sorry, but I don't understand the question perfectly. If you don't have a floppy *or* there is no option for using a floppy (this may be the case for Vista and 7), then use the appropriate drive to load the drivers.

Look for extra languages and delete those - like Spanish (SP) and French (FR), etc. Also look for extra operating systems that you do not need like Win2000 (W2K), Vista, etc.
To prevent CHKDSK from running, click Start > Run > CMD > Ok.
At the prompt, type CHKNTFS /X C: > Enter. You can substitute any drive letter for C:.

I'm running XP SP3 Pro on an SATA HD, usually the way I run chkdsk is:
chkdsk c: /f /r
You have to reboot the system to get chkdsk to check drive c:.
so, imperion1, you have used the winxp-cd-method-sata-driver-installation?
As far as I know, you must use a floppy drive to install storage drivers in XP.
