disk check consistency

kauau
During preliminary boot before the sign in window a disk check for consistency error comes up saying one of your disk needs to be checked for consistency. Volume number 2e7c-17e6 you have 10 seconds to cancel.

when that command stops it normally starts checking the drive files, but does not and freezes.

how do you end the freeze, or delete that window

    I had the same (or very similar, I'm not 100% sure of the message) problem a couple years ago. I never was able to figure it out. I wound up scrapping the drive. Any clues?

    Click Start, Run and type cmd and press Enter. Type the following commands and press Enter after each one.

    Fsutil dirty query C:

    If C: is not the drive you're checking, then you'll need to change that value in the command. When you execute this command, the result should tell you if the drive is dirty. Which it most likely is if Check Disk is running every time you start Windows.

    At this point, you'll use the Chkntfs command to disable the Check Disk operation for the next startup. Type:

    Chkntfs /x C:


    Again, if you're not troubleshooting the C: drive, change the value in the command. When you execute the command, the result should tell you that the file system is NTFS.

    Now, close the Command Prompt and restart Windows. Hopefully, Check Disk won't run and you'll boot directly into Windows.

    However, Check Disk does run, don't despair. Let Windows boot and then open a Command Prompt window. Now, run Check Disk in full repair mode by entering:

    Chkdsk /f /r C:

    If you're not troubleshooting the C: drive, change the value in the command.
