Repair (non bootable) Corrupt W7 files using UBCD
Posted on 2011-09-05
I am working on a Dell Vostro 320 with a W7 Home Premium OS.
It was infected but has been cleaned via my Bitdefender's boot cd.
Via amother cleaning program I used I found out several files are corrupt.
The PC goes thru post but freezes at the windows symbol (when the stars start to revolve) from BOTH a regular boot and booting from W7 DVD's. Non Windows based (Linux) boot disks seem to work fine.
Safe mode starts but ALL options (including the C prompt and disable file signature) freeze. Therefore I connot use any of the dos based commands on the pc.
I have taken the computer apart and put it back together again once and this model it takes about 1.5 hours, so I don't want to do that again .
I would like to run chkdsk on the HDD. I have a UBCD boot disk.
Can I run chkdsk on the HDD using my UBCD boot disk and if so how do I go about doing that?
