i have xp and windows 7 on separate partitions on my laptop and whenever i go into windows 7 it runs a disc check, i let it check it but why would it need to do it everytime i boot it up?
(Solved) - windows 7 partition(3 posts)
My guess would be that XP is writing to the Windows 7 partition and leaving it in a state that causes the check disk to run. What I like to do on dual boot systems is remove the volume letter assigned to all other boot partitions. For example, when booted into XP, use Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) to remove the volume letter from the Windows 7 partition. When booted to Win7 remove the volume letter of the XP partition. My preference is to keep common data on a separate partition that all the operating systems can access.
