How do I create a boot disk that goes straight into Chkdsk?

I have a computer that wont boot into windows. I'd like to run a chkdsk, so I was wondering if there's a way to boot up from a CD and have it check the disk on startup.

Hey,

You could try BartPE and add Chkdsk as a startup item?

Might work

Best if you do that from Windows installation CD\DVD.
Bart PE or WinPE or other boot CDs will require you detect the hardware first and include drivers for your hardware into CD. Also, CHKDSK often causes negative effects you do not expect. For example if the file system is partially corrupt (mostly FAT32) you risk to loose the data completely after running CHKDSK /f.
Beware of this problem.
So my recommendation is to boot from Windows CD - Recovery Console - run CHKDSK without /f there.
Also most non booting Windows problems are hardly caused by FS errors.

Running CHKDSK is a bad idea,  if you have errors from a  damaged hard disk drive.
I have had good results from hdd regenerator.
