    Hello Balubeto,

    It's not suppose to have a drive letter to prevent folks from messing with it since it's a system partition require by Windows.

    Hello Balubeto,

    It's not suppose to have a drive letter to prevent folks from messing with it since it's a system partition require by Windows.
    So, how should I assign a letter to this partition with diskpart command to perform your procedure?

    When I will end perform this procedure, how I will do to remove this letter?

    When I display a list of the disk partitions, three partitions are displayed: two NTFS and one FAT32 partitions. The FAT32 partition is the "System Reserved". Right?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Are you not able to run SFC from within Windows?

    You can use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below with the "assign" command to do so.

    When I display a list of the disk partitions, three partitions are displayed: two NTFS and one FAT32 partitions. The FAT32 partition (100 MB) is the "System Reserved". Right?

    Thanks

    Bye

    It should be, but you should also have a label to help ID it.

    I used 'sfc /scannow' from the bootable usb recovery and it found and repaired corrupt files the 3 times I ran it. Is this command suppose to find and repair corrupt files each time it's ran? I should of scan the drive for errors first before I made an image with macrium reflect, thats why the automatic repair boot loop that couldn't be repaired on my new SSD?

    Hello computernoop407,

    Check to see if running SFC while in Windows 8 finds any errors. If it does, then please post back with a sfcdetails.txt file to see what it's reporting.

    Thank you for replying, here is the attach log after the scan was finish. It says 'windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.' When I preview my post, the attached .txt log shows, but when I post it, it doesn't show? Not sure why? The 'enhanced attachment uploading is off'.
