Because caching disk controllers can delay and/or change the order in which data is written to the disk, independent of the filesystem's intentions, a filesystem's data or structure can become corrupted if the writes are interrupted Filesystem corruption by this means can occur with any filesystem on any operating system, When the files are corrupted and the Startup files cannot be found in the MBR It is going to automatically shut dowm and scan your drive repair the damage sector.
