Lost access to disk after reboot of a VM running Windows Server 2012-R2 on OpenStack.

I have access to the command prompt of the VM.

Running chkdsk gives me the error:

'Errors detected in the uppercase file. Windows has checked the filesystem and found problems. Failed to transfer logged message to the event log with status 50.'

Running chkdsk /f C: gives me the error that it cannot open volume for direct access.

Can somebody please help me to troubleshoot. Not very familiar with Windows CLI.

Thanks. Sana

chkdsk /r C: gives me the error:

The Type of the file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive. Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected.
