    How to run chkdsk when I cant even boot into windows?
    No need to run chkdsk at all. You just need to install image. Macrium formats drive for you.

    If you get issues, then do this :-

    If you boot from the Macrium usb, in the bottom lefthand corner is a command prompt.

    Click on it and run these command:

    Warning - this will wipe hdd completely. If you have other data partitions, back them up with Macrium first.

    diskpart

    list disk

    select disk n (n=number of hdd, normally zero)

    clean (warning wipes everything on hdd)

    create partition primary

    select partition 1

    format fs=ntfs quick

    assign

    exit

    exit

    Now restore your Macrium image.

    I am trying to make the bootable drive using rufus but not sure of the selections to choose:
    a)Which of the 3 partition scheme to choose
    b) File System Fat 32? If fat32 then what cluster size.

    Tks
    Actually you can make that disk without using rufus, just mount the ISO by right clicking from your hard drive, and then copy the files over to your USB drive. Make sure USB stick is fat32 and partition is set to active.
    But....if you want to use Rufus I took a screen shot for you..... Do NOT check mark "create a bootable disk" in my pic it is check marked. As the boot files are already their in the ISO Best way is option of just mounting the iso and copying to the usb stick.

    Dont understand about making the thumb drive partition active. Isnt this the normal mode?

    Re Rufus :
    Should I use the Partition scheme for BIOS and UEFI or the GTP scheme ? Clicking on my C drive shows the partitions are GTP . Safer to use the default scheme?

    If the empty usb is fat32, its active. Really don't need to use rufus. Just mount, than copy all files to USB.

    But.....try those settings I showed in rufus. BUT do not check the create bootable disk!!!! Mine is also GPT and I have no problems. You could try it either way if you want. Bottom line if you make a mistake, its easy to fix.

    Now I am confused. When I unchecked the Create bootable disk button , all it did was create 2 files... icon and auto run but no image files.
    Do I now mount and copy ? I thought Rufus does it all in one pass?

    When I tried it previously with the create bootable disk button checked the winpE files were also created but I did not see the autorun folder.

    The boot files are already in the Recovery PE that you downloaded, that's why I said don't check that box. But, if rufus didn't copy those files correctly, then try checking the box. You got options, so don't worry about it just yet.
    Easiest way still is to MOUNT the ISO image by right clicking on the ISO and choose the Mount option. Then tag all the files, and just copy them unto your USB stick, then Try booting the USB stick, to make sure it works ok. For my computer I have to hit my F9 key to see my choices for boot option, after I choose to restart computer.

    I used the copy method to prepare the bootable USB drive.

    I tested it by rebooting from within windows 10 choosing the USB drive and I was able to get to log in page , signed in and every works. I assume this is the same as booting from start .

    What screen will I expect to see if I had a corrupted C drive ?
