Presently we get to step 7 number 12
Which gives two options, either to run step 6 to see if using recovery console will let you use check disk, or to run step 8
If you need help with any of it post in

I suggest to use the recovery console and run chkdsk /f and after that chkdsk /r (you can't run both under a single command in recovery console). If this doesnt help then I would run the fixboot and fixmbr commands.

Would it be possible to walk me through the process of getting to the chkdsk / * prompt(s) in the recovery console? Am I correct that it will be via the install disk again?
