    Inaccessible boot device - chkdsk /r/p

    Upon a recent reboot of my Windows 2000 OS machine, a blue screen appeared with the Stop Message, Inaccessible Boot Device. Using the recovery console from the Windows 2000 Installation CD, I am able to run chkdsk /r/p from the dos prompt. After 7 hours, it completed telling me that it found and fixed one error. However, the next time I rebooted my machine, I got the same error. I followed the same chkdsk process and it worked, but I don't want to do this every time. Is there a way to fix whatever this error is permanently? Thanks.

    Does chkdsk tell you anything about the error that it fixed?
    Have you looked in the event log to see if there are any helpful error messages?

    Stuart,
    Thanks for your reply. The chkdsk program doesn't specify which error, just that one error was found and fixed. Where would I go to find an event log?

    You can find the Event Viewer from Start > Run > Eventvwr.msc

    Look in the System log to see if there are any errors or warnings.
