Windows Server 2008 r2 repaired using Windows Server 2012 r2 check disk from recovery console

Hello Experts

I was having an issue where I had corrupted files on my Windows Server 2008 r2 which is a hyper v VM. The problem was I was running a check disk from the recovery console and the check disk would not work.

I decided to boot again to the recovery console but this time using a server 2012 r2 recovery console. I ran check disk and it ran and fixed the errors and I was able to boot fine and all corruption is gone

My question is if fixing a server 2008 r2 from the recovery console is server 2012 r2 is going to cause other issues

Thank you

If all you did is run CHKDSK, there is no issue. But otherwise, I would not try to mix the systems.

Thank you. I agree. I read that the 2012 check disk was much more effective so I thought I would give it a try. Thank you

You are very welcome. Thank you for the added information. We only have Server 2012 at our clients but still good to know.
