Ok as with my earler posts today. I did a schedule on reboot for check and fix errors. It gets to 59% amd freezes. Now what? How do I get out of this or fix it? Stage 4 of 5.

Bad sign -- often means disk is failing. Some faults are 'fixable' if you run the disk manufacturer's diagnostic software, just depends how serious the fault or wear and tear is. I suggest you run the diagnostic software to ascertain what condition the disk is in. It's free to download and use, but you'll need to know the disk maker's name to get the correct software from their website. It runs from a bootable floppy or cd containing it's own basic version of DOS so it will work even if the disk is really messed up and Windows won't start.

Ya got it last night. So I was able to run check disk under windows and it finished fine. Still i'm going to run it in dos mode and see. I ran seagate tools under windows and it fails on s.m.a.r.t. check, long drive self test, drive info and long generic. Passed short generic. Does it matter if the drive is partitioned and I have it hooked up to my other cpu as a secondary drive?? other wise I will hook it back up to the other cpu and run it in that system under dos.
