Hi BC,

 

I have a Dell Latitude E5510 laptop that came with Windows 7 Pro.  Many months ago, I upgraded to windows 10 when Microsoft kept asking me to, but after installing windows 10, I could never get any windows update to install properly.  I finally decided to reinstall 10 again yesterday, and the windows updates seem to work fine.

 

The issue I have now is on every reboot, the computer wants to run a disk check:

 

"To skip disk checking, press any key..."

 

I can press a key and avoid the disk check and go to desktop, but I would like to stop this disk check.

 

If I don't press a key, I see the following message:

 

"Scanning and repairing drive (\\?\Volume{96434c70-0000-0000-0000-701c3a000000}): 0% Complete"

 

If I let it go, it will stop at 9% complete, and then boot to desktop, but the issue happens again upon next reboot.

 

I have researched this issue and tried several things from the link below using an admin command prompt and also making a change to the registry, but the issue remains.

What can I do to resolve this issue?

 

Thanks!

 

Jeff

http://www.thewindowsclub.com/check-disk-runs-at-every-startup-windows

 

Per the instructions, I let my computer go through disk check after reboot, and then I changed the registry BootExecute to autocheck autochk *    I rebooted, and the disk check remains on startup.

 

Then, I opened an admin command prompt and typed:  fsutil dirty query c: and the message said "Volume - c: is NOT dirty" 

 

I also typed fsutil dirty query g: and the message said "Error: The parameter is incorrect"

 

Lastly, I typed CHKNTFS /X G: and CHKNTFS /X C:   I rebooted, and the disk check remains on startup.

 

What should I try next?

I looked in Task Manager, but I don't see any Scheduled Tasks.  I was able to open the Task Scheduler App, and there are many tasks listed there.  What am I supposed to do?

Hi, I typed Chkdsk C: /r

 

Message said:  "The type of file system is NTFS.  Cannot lock current drive.  Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process.  Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the enxt time the system restartes?"

 

I entered "Y" and rebooted. 

 

The "skip disk checking" message came up on restart, but I didn't skip and let it do it's normal thing...the "scanning and repairing drive" message gets stuck at 9% and then goes to desktop.

 

I rebooted a second time, and the disk check came up again.

 

What should I try next?

"To skip disk checking, press any key..."

It is not the issue or problem or whatever, it has been so always, but You must not see the scanning text on desktop. This is issue which says, that something is wrong.
But You can always disable disk checking on every reboot. The simplest way is to use Windows 10 manager, but if You really do not want to use it, You should change registry key, what was already recommended.
It is perfectly normal to disable to check on every reboot, especially recommended to disable, if you have an SSD drive or very large drive. It is not simply necessary and takes also long time.
 
This key is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager => BootExecute and its value must be 
---------------
autocheck autochk * 
PDBoot.exe
---------------  

If You need full correct key, ask me, because I cannot add its content as text, then cannot post, it is too long.

On a slightly different track.... how did you reinstall Win 10?

 

Do you have a screenshot of your partitions?

Because Creators Update 1703 may have resized the Windows partition

Also all info on an issue can be valuable :)

Hi, I already changed the registry for BootExecute to autocheck autochk * and the disk check still happens on reboot.

 

What is PDBoot.exe and the full correct key?  What should I try next?

 

 

 

 

On a slightly different track.... how did you reinstall Win 10?

 

Do you have a screenshot of your partitions?

 

First, I used the media creation tool on a thumb drive.  Then, I did a full reset using advanced options on the computer.

 

See attached screenshot of partition and let me know if you need anything else.  Thanks!

That's not a normal partition structure for Windows 7. There is usually a 100MB System Reserved Partition before the Windows partitions but that's not to mean your partition structure would not work. 

 

When you used CHKNTFS /X C:  did you use an elevated command prompt? CMD in the search box > Right click run as Administrator.

One of my two laptops doesn't have System Reserved partition either -- I'll be listening in and learning alongside the thread starter. jmbtexas, one program that might or might not come in handy is Neosoft's EasyBCD, if others here determine you need a System Reserved partition, they can walk you through using EasyBCD (and I will follow their advice also).

The System Reserved partition holds the Boot Manager code and the Boot Configuration Database.  Without this there would be serious problems booting into Windows.  There is the possibility that this partition is hidden.  To see if it is in fact hidden use the instruction found here.

A really nice write up about the system reserved partition here.

 

https://discuss.howtogeek.com/t/what-is-the-system-reserved-partition-and-can-you-delete-it/17395/11

 

The reason I asked how Win 10 was installed is sometimes an operating system will not install correctly no matter what is tried unless the drive is wiped first.

 

It's as if it 'retains' a memory of how it was before.
