I see there are many posts here and elsewhere in which people put in their windows CD, and run SFC /SCANNOW, but the process keeps repeating a menu which asks you to insert the windows CD and hit Retry, More Info, or Cancel.
I tried one of the solutions at the very bottom here...
...which was simply to keep hitting "retry" over and over. And it worked. As the poster wrote, when you keep hitting retry, the progress bar eventually starts to move, either a little or a lot, until you have to use another series of "retries". But you'll get to the end eventually.
What I want to know is -- what's going on here? Is the "sfc /scannow" process just "giving up" on a file, or eventaully skipping a file, and moving on? Or is the optical disc data just barely being read -- sometines correctly, other times not?
This whole thing doesn't make a lot of sense to me...
thx for any info
