  • 1. CHKDSK needs offline checking, when your target is system/boot partition. Use alternative

    2. In spite of the fact that you found nothing wrong by HP diagnostics, I recommend to solve the problem with HP support. Here is online reference

    3. My guess is that there is AV security software. In this case, please, use the Symantec support and/or Symantec Forum.

    2.  I did use HP support to check my hardware on the server

    3.  Symantec antivirus support did not find it related to them

    Thank you
