To disable automatic disk checking at Windows startup through registry, go to the following registry key:

HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

In the right hand pane, double click BootExecute.

The default value of the key is autocheck autochk *

  • means every drive is checked for consistency. Just add /K:C at the end before *. /K switch will disable autocheck on C: drive at Windows startup. So the final value should look like this:

autocheck autochk /k:C *

If you want to add more drives, the key should look like this: (disabling C and D drives)

autocheck autochk /k:C /k:D *

If you want to restore everything to default, just replace the key with the default one i.e.,

autocheck autochk *

Fruit Bat /\0/\ - How does he get to the registry if the system isn't starting?

yes the boot is the real problem

I am assuming the check disk process

is disabling the boot

the start up repair lets me back in

but this is very confusing

and makes me nervous to boot this way

also when the check disk does not run boot is normal
