    In Windows Server 2008 (not R2), I can't find the expected CHKDSK summary record in any Event Log from a CHKDSK C: /F command run at boot time. Does everything now get written to C:\bootex.log (which is present)?

    In Windows 7 it is found in the Application log, event ID 1001, source WinInit, but there seems (surprisingly) to be no equivalent that I can find in WS2008.

    Googling using likely search terms has produced nothing of value...

    As far as I am aware it should appear in your Application Log as you say under event ID 1001 source Wininit. I just tested this on a Windows 2008 R2 (sorry don't have access to plain 2008 at the moment).

    While having a quick look around I did find this interesting PowerShell script (run as administrator)

    Code:
    get-winevent -FilterHashTable @{logname="Application"; id="1001"}| ?{$_.providername –match "wininit"} | fl timecreated, message
