MS is a bunch of liers if i can reproduce it then that means that they can.

This is why MS pisses me off instead of admitting they were wrong and fixing the problem they tell the public that "Oh its no big deal we couldnt reproduce it so it doesnt exist." doesn't exist my ass FIX IT MS.

QUOTE - DailyTech says the bug has been confirmed on a variety of hardware
configurations, including netbooks and Core 2 Duo notebooks, and it
affects both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

 

Netbooks use Intel Atoms, and Core whatever is an Intel chip. See any connection? Intel is all high and mighty saying that Win7 will be optimized for their processors, if by optimized you mean leaking memory... AMD FTW.

Suck it Intel.

Another baseless argument brought to you by a fanboy, cheers!

 In hindsight, I never actually meant to come off as a fanboy for AMD, but I do appreciate them.

Seems like I have foot-in-mouth disease.

For starters, you have to be in the command-prompt in Win7 (only geeks do this), with a secondary drive - that you want to run chkdsk in a local CMD window (instead of at boot time).  Not a showstopper.

But then, they finally discovered it was a driver issue of the Op's machine - so effectively a non-issue for all but the silly.

Next up: If you turn your machine upside down while running triple SLI with a Physix card, dual booted with Linux on alternate Tuesdays it'll crash Win7.  SHOWSTOPPER!

So now it's looking like it's not a bug after all from what I'm reading... that the program uses as much of your system resources as it can (in a non-disruptive way) to finish as quickly as possible.

It's odd with so many news sources blogging others, it seems to add credence to stories that maybe weren't researched very thoroughly... if I see it repeated 10 places it seems to have more validity.

 that's how i read it. MS count find the memory leak "bug" because from their perspection chkdsk -r is designed to uses maximum ram (minus 50MB) to complete the process as quickly as posible.

It's only just begun. There will be thousands of these kind of story's to come as more PC use Win 7. History alway's repeats it self.

DailyTech did not find the bug, it was a user on Windows 7 Center (http://windows7center.com/) who found the bug, and DailyTech is taking the glory to finding it.  Typical!
