How to disable CHKDSK completely on startup

Hi, anyone knows how to disable CHKDSK completely on startup? it's driving me nuts, trying to scan all of my drives, even the system reserved partition! I don't know why this is happening.

You could try using the /x "kill" command from an elevated command prompt.

Elevated Command Prompt

If you have drive C: as your hard drive, then the command to disable chkdsk from scanning C: drive would be:

chkntfs /x c:

If you have 2 drives, let's say C and D, you can disable chkdsk like so:

chkntfs /x c: d:

then go ahead and reboot.

thanks for the reply, i can disable those drives with letters, but chkdsk is requesting to check system reserved partition too. what the hell is wrong with windows? why isn't there a way to fully disable that chkdsk program?

Here's an MS article I found that may help you.
It seems update KB2823324 causes this for some Win 7 x64 systems.

"Claude1777" has a suggested fix in this Microsoft thread (second post) that seems to have worked for several people:

System File Checker wants to run every time I boot Windows but it - Microsoft Community

And "keggers" found one in this Microsoft thread (near the bottom):

chkdsk error (766f6c756d652e63 3f1) on windows 7 system reserved partition

Just a reminder, it might be advisable to make a System Restore Point just in case.

Be real careful. I would, now that you've solved the issue, go back and unassign the drive letter to prevent losing any files in that reserved partition.

Glad to hear assigning a drive letter solved the problem. And that's excellent advice by Pea.
