    Hi

    In Windows 7 after you run chkdsk, open the Event Viewer and navigate to Windows Logs / Application.

    In the right side section, look for:

    Source: wininit
    Event ID: 1001

    Double click this event and select the Copy button on the lower left corner of that dialog.

    Open Notepad and Paste the results.

    For Windows XP information, go to the following forum.

    Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) Forum

    Hope this helps.

    Thank You for using Windows 7

  • Where is the real log file on disk at? The Event viewer does not show the full log file if it is large!

  • There is no log on the disk - as far as I am aware, the only log is in the Wininit event in the Application Event View.
