Got a Sony Vaio that will not boot into normal mode. Booted into the repair disk and ran chkdsk /F from the cmd prompt. It ran for a while, didn't really seem to come up with anything then stopped with:
"Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status of 50."
Generic stop message from what I gather from MS. I'm about to reload this laptop having tried a startup repair which found nothing but the chkdsk thing bothers me. I found a bunch of others who have had the problem but none who really found anything wrong with the disk.
I did run Malwarebytes and Superantispyware in safemode. Nothing but cookies. Event viewer shows no fdisk errors and only sidebyside app events for MS Works update error. Nothing else significant I can see.
So, advice? Just reload? Any other way to run chkdisk that might be useful?
