    Windows 10 Check Disk at every startup since creators update


    Hi everyone.

    Ever since I updated Windows 10 to the creators update a few weeks ago, my HP Spectre laptop at startup has a message that pops up asking to perform a chkdsk or press space bar within 8 seconds.

    Any suggestions/recommendations on how to stop/get rid of this from appearing at startup?

    Cheers!

    Press the Windows key+X choose Command Prompt (Admin)
    Here type chkntfs /X C: This tells Windows not to check the C: drive on bootup.

    Thanks for the response @spunk.

    I followed your instructions but unfortunately I get the same message at startup.

    Just some additional info... my HP has an SSD.

    Any other suggestions/recommendations would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    First, unplug any external HDD's you may have connected so that only the HDD in the laptop is affected.
    If you read the link provided in post #2 you would see you first have to clear the Dirty Bit by typing
    fsutil dirty query C: and pressing Enter. It should say the disk is Dirty or Not Dirty (Clean)
    Now set the drive to not check the C: drive by typing
    chkntfs /X C: and pressing Enter. Now do a manual check of the drive, Type
    chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y for Yes. And restart the computer.
    Check Disk will run one more time and it will take a long time. When it's done, it should no longer have the problem

    So that we're clear, my laptop does not have an HDD... it only has an SSD. Does this make a difference in your instructions above?

    Cheers!

    No, SSD or HDD either way they are relatively the same as far as Windows is concerned.

    When I enter fsutil dirty query C: into the cmd prompt I get an "access is denied" message.

    @spunk... I figured out that I needed to run those commands in an elevated cmd mode.

    I ran the following in the elevated cmd mode...

    chkntfs
    chkntfs /x c:

    Which both gave me the same results as described on that link. After which I restarted my laptop to find the same "To stop chkdsk, press any key within 8 seconds" message at the HP startup/boot screen.

    I had a similar problem after the last cumulative update. Let the chkdsk continue and complete at startup. Then, from the admin prompt, enter chkdsk /r and press enter. You will be prompted to restart to run the command because your C drive is allocated. Restart your PC and let chkdsk run. This will take a while, but your problem should be corrected.
