System is Win7x64 Pro on Core i7-920, 12GB
I'm experiencing some system flakiness and am trying to pin down the cause.
SMART shows zero bad sectors, zero pending reallocations on all drives
Memory tests show no problems.
Chkdsk fails in various different ways:
- When run from a normal command line (no /f option) it gets to 63% and then hangs
- When run on boot (autocheck) it hangs immediately on starting. Actually, the countdown timer (Press any key to skip chkdsk) gets to 1 second and the system hangs.
- When run from the F8 "Repair System" option (the Win7 "recovery console"), with /f, it runs to about 63% (end of stage 2) and then fails as follows:
Volume label is OS. CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)... 5068288 file records processed. File verification completed. 308 large file records processed. 0 bad file records processed. 2 EA records processed. 77 reparse records processed. CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2 of 3)... 63 percent complete. (6078872 of 7562028 index entries processed) An unspecified error occurred (696e647863686b2e e19). Unable to obtain a handle to the event log.
Googling and searching on Technet for the error code and "Unable to obtain a handle to the event log" both turn up nothing useful.
Anybody have any info on what the problem is?
