chkdsk issue

This is for a Dell Latitude 6440. The HD is a Liteonit lcs-128m6 2.5 7mm 128GB

I don’t think this is a big deal, but I try to take the better safe than sorry approach. Plus, I am curious to see what this could be.

I’ve finished setting up the laptop w/ Windows 10 Enterprise 21H2. I run chkdsk /f as an administrator, but for some reason the chkdsk get at %100 and stays there, never reboots to Windows.

If I turn the laptop off and reboot the laptop, chkdsk finished and boots to Windows.

There are no physical problems to the disk. I’ve updated the laptop to the latest BIOS. All drivers are installed; no question marks for unknown device(s). I’ve downloaded all drivers from Windows update, and I’d think all the drivers are up to date as they will get. However, don’t see how this would be a driver issue when the chkdsk run before Windows fully boots. The same issue for antivirus. Windows hasn’t fully booted.

I think I could redo the laptop and run chkdsk more often before finishing the laptop all the way to get rid of this issue, but again, I’m curious if there’s a way to fix this. Redoing the laptop takes are an hour.

I’ve included the log from the event viewer in the txt file.

I've surfed the Internet but haven't found much about this.

I doubt this is an issue. Maybe your SSD can be upgraded with new Firmware. But chkdsk shouldn't have to be run on a regular basis. It is there to fix filesystem problems, but if there are no problems, there is nothing to fix. Filesystem problems can be caused by hardware problems of the disk itself (run the Disk Manufacturer's diagnostics for that, if liteon has such a tool), or for example if the PC powered off without doing a proper shutdown, or if there are other hardware problems of the PC, like bad RAM etc. A PC that works normally & that is also used normally shouldn't get filesystem problems.

Surfing the internet seems to be firmware for the drive, but I'm having a hard time getting the firmware
