Windows 7: AUTOCHK Initiation Countdown Time - Change

27 Aug 2015   #10

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I f*****g love you Brink.. seriously you have not only helped me but amazed me and sent me on a journey with the desire to understand the inner workings of the windows system.. I've been living in the registry and trying to dismantle the OS and the whole windows GUI / UI having a blast customizing at fine tuning and maybe a little exploiting. Anyway on a crash, my alienware has some funky shit where the keyboard takes a while to initialize during booting.. I think the keyboard lights are the culprits. I have a split second to catch the F12 if I'm loading a alternative OS, but the disaster of a problem has been the CHKDSK.. sometimes the keyboard will turn on RIGHT after the 10 seconds has expired and I have 5 drives. I would just turn of my PC a few times (so baddd -__-) and usually after a few tries I can catch CHKDSK at the last second. All your info on killing the DIRTY and ESPECIA ALL the time increase.. THANK YOU... lol I'll come back and bitch (ask for help) if the extended time just forces my keyboard to turn on even later lol.. Hope that's not the case. Do you know, is there boot priority in start up? I unplugged the lights and that seemed to have helped but I'm still messing around with everything.
