Disable check disk on start up

by Ken Deyell / March 7, 2010 10:03 PM PST

I had a bad "driver install" and windows tried to do a fix/repair and in doing so it has "check disk" running at start up.I would like the "registry fix" to disable this.Upon checking the registry hkey local machine\system it lists "controlset001" and "controlset003" which appear to list the exact same keys.Is this normal? My OS Vista Home Premium

Registry Modification...
by John.Wilkinson / March 8, 2010 2:51 AM PST

Right-click this link and save it as a REG file. Once saved, double-click it and allow the import of the changes to your system registry. Windows may reset the Chkdsk flag again in the future, but those changes will eliminate this instance of Chkdsk fever.

-> Having duplicate registry entries between ControlSets is normal.

Disable Check Disk

John as you can tell this is not my day.I was unable to open the URL that you listed.I did note in the description it referenced to XP I'm assuming the fix also applies to Vista.Thx for answering my question regarding the "double controlset" listed.

Let's try that again, shall we?

Right-click this link and save it as a REG file. Once saved, double-click it and allow the import of the changes to your system registry. Windows may reset the Chkdsk flag again in the future, but those changes will eliminate this instance of Chkdsk fever.

-> Yes, the same fix applies to both Windows XP and Windows Vista.

Disable check disk at start up
by Ken Deyell / March 9, 2010 3:34 AM PST

John thx for correcting the broken link and the reg fix did disable the chkdsk at start up.I always try to dig up a solution before I come crying for help and this solution leaves me somewhat puzzled.The value that is now shown for "bootexecute" ..autocheck autochk * was described to me that the "asterisk *" in this value designated that "all disks" would be checked upon start up.Obviously they are not well informed.
