Here is my problem:
I have issued Windows 7 to check my drive C: for bad sectors. (Right click on C: -> Properties -> Tools -> Check now... -> Both checkboxed checked -> Start)
It told me that this command cannot be issued at the moment and thus has to be scheduled.
I issued a shutdown for the process to start, but it is stuck in the "Shutting down..." screen. I assume that this means Windows is checking my hard drive and this takes a few hours.
Now to my question: Can I check what Windows is doing in the "Shutting down..." screen? I want to know if there is actual progress and perhaps how long it will take.
Is there some way to switch to some kind of console mode with more information like in Ubuntu. I think the F2 key switched from the startup screen to a console with a log.
