comment How is the blue screen called when scandisk runs before login?
OK, I found also technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897447.aspx, they say applications running there are "native" and use only the NT API (ntdll.dll) and not Win32.

I found this question mentioning BootExecute, in it they call it Native Mode. Is this how it's called?

@Bob Keep in mind an awful lot of people search Google for scandisk instead of chkdsk, because the name stuck in popular culture. They will not find my question now. So I put "scandisk/chkdsk" in the title.

Thanks, but it was winlogon, not wininit. It seems that @Wessel's answer is more relevant to Windows XP (my OS), while yours is more relevant to future versions.

comment Service Pack 1Ð? What does Ð stand for?
Oh, ok, I had missed that. Btw, why does it have a 7600.win7_gdr.100618? Does it stand for GDR?

All the other symbols are english characters. The latin alphabet is written the same way in UTF-8 and all the code pages. That's the beauty of UTF-8, even the wrong encoding will display latin characters correctly. I think the first 128 chars are the same for all encodings.

comment Service Pack 1Ð? What does Ð stand for?
Looks like a wrong code-page. Likely it's some Unicode text that's shown in the wrong encoding. In particular, I've seen the Ð sign before in subtitles that had the wrong encoding, but not sure which one. See stackoverflow.com/questions/3195237/…
