    CHKDSK problem


    I have a two hard disk computer, with Win7 as my primary OS and Win10 installed on the secondary, totally separate HDD. When I boot into Win10 everything works fine except... that I have to run CHKDSK on all HDD (including partitions) when I want to boot again into Win7.

    Why?

    Today I found this on the HDD that has Win7.

    Is this the cause for having to run CHKDSK after I boot Win10?
    Is there a fix?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hopefully you backed up, because having to run CHKDSK means that the partition is getting damaged somehow (not trying to worry you).

    Fast boot/ fast startup causes this. Disable it and see if the chkdsk prompting is gone or not.

    Follow Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Also boot into the BIOS and search there. If there is such an option, disable it.

    Now, boot into windows 10. Restart and boot into windows 7. Let us know if it is still asking for chkdsk.

    Oh yeah forgot. Fast Start is a bane for anyone dual booting.

    Win 10 Pro

    I have only recently upgraded to Windows 10 Pro and I was getting frequent chkdsk runs when I went back into my dual boot Windows 7. Last night windows 7 did a chkdsk again and seemed to "fix" a lot of files. Since then I cannot get back into windows 10 other than the boot options. Is there a way / a program to fix this from within windows 7 or the windows 10 boot????
    I did have fast boot activated by default in windows 10.

    I had the same problem, and after many moons R+R Win10. Again both 7+10 worked until one day 7 was hosed. So I gave in and upgraded to Win10 as my ONLY OS and have been very happy since then. All my programs work with Win10, it is very stable (not one crash) and manages RAM very well. I recommend ditching 7 and going with 10.
