Trying to install vista, but it's running chkdsk? URGENT

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just bought a new mobo and need to reinstall vista. Got it Installed and booted it up. Got into the bios and the keyboard works. Switched boot devices to cd-rom first. I save and exit with the vista cd inserted. Windows shows up on the black screen with the green loading bar. Then it says something about NTFS and to press any key or it will schedule a chkdsk. I try to press any key and none of the keys work. It starts running chkdsk.

Is it suppossed to run chkdsk before installing? I didn't remember this before using xp

No, it's not supposed to.. That's wierd, if the keyb works in BIOS. It's a USB keyboard, I suppose? Shouldn't matter though.
What Vista is this? Is it a genuine CD? (just wink )

Its not a genuine cd and i suppose that is likely the issue. I have a legit code, but lost my disk. Had a member send me a copy, but looks like i need to find a new oem disc

i haven't used an authentic disc in years. I do PC repair and the owners never have the discs so i *find them*, but i use their COA.

Only thing you would have to worry about is if the CD was modified.

Try swapping the Hdd and see if it still wants to run check disc maybe it detected something. I normally do a full format of the harddrive to do a basic test of it during install.
