I just wanted to express my thanks to all those who posted the proposed solutions on this thread. I'd been unable to run chkdsk for some months until I followed the steps outlined here. The information is very thorough and well presented. I am very grateful that people like you are making these contributions and letting others access them freely.

Hi Shawn,

I need some help with the following problem:
When I start my PC a File System Check is done and that takes much longer than usual. To describe what I mean, this check happens after CMOS --> BIOS --> Processor --> RAM --> HD + CD + USB Drives and then my Drivers are loaded. This is the point where that file system scan is performed. (where the Windows loading bar appears)

I have 4 partitions on my internal drive (C D E & G) and these are OK. Then I have an external data disk (L), and this one is fine too, but I also have 4 Changeable Disk of which the File System cannot be determined. I said "Changeable" because this is literally translated from Dutch, "Verwisselbare schijf" = "Changeable" but can also mean "Exchangeable" or "Removeable". See those 4 highlighted disks (H, I, M, N) at the bottom in the following screenshot:

My PC.png

Is it possible to disable the file system scan on those 4 disks during startup?
I never use those disks, nor do I know which program controls them.
When I need a virtual disk I use Daemon Tools, so those 4 disks are of no use to me.

Can you help me out with this one? (anyone else knowledgeable enough can chime in too of course)

Regards Carlo

Hello Carlo,

Those removable drives look like they may from a media card reader. One drive letter per slot. Do you have a media card reader?

Is this just the normal system check at boot, or a scan by Disk Check?

If it's not Disk Check, then you might see if troubleshooting with a clean startup may help ID the issue if it's something causing startup to hang some.

Hope this helps for now, :)

Hi Shawn, thanks for your swift reply!

Yes I have card reader drivers installed, don't use 'm very often though, and these drives can/could be disabled if I choose too.
Would that solve my issue if I just disabled those drives in Computer Management --> Device Manager & then reboot my PC?

Hmm I might as well try while 'm asking. Gonna do that, restart my PC & if that didn't help I'll try your options out, & report back...

PS To answer your question, yes this happens during the normal startup phase, about 25 secs into the PC boot process.
Just wondering but isn't that an nfts-scan during the normal startup process?

So chckdsk works fine as it should be, no problems with that.

Stay tuned ;)

Shawn, I disabled those Card Drivers in Device Manager, which caused them to be listed in the set of Volumes/Drives that are going to be scanned during the boot process, and by doing so that fixed my problem... somewhat LOL During the boot up process, (with "start without UI interface" unchecked in msconfig) I can see what Drives are checked when the results of the scan pop up, and those 4 Virtual Drives are gone from view, so that is fixed. The Pc can't scan those Drives anymore and that speeds up my boot time, but it still takes a long time IMO to scan 5 Volumes (C D E G L). I have to say that 2 Volumes were recently added, so that will probably attribute to a longer overall scan/boot process...

I don't know if there is a tool that can scan for such a problems, and actually fixes them,... does this exist Shawn?

I tried several cleaners & tweaking program to fix my slow boot, (Ccleaner & Advanced SystemCare), tweaked my Services, sfc/scannow etc and I have many problems resolved already by doing other tricks as well, so all I have to do to be done with my spring-optimizing of the PC is fixing that slow phase during boot. Nearly there. And I guess that I can speed that up if I knew how to make the PC scan only one Drive (C), because all those Drives are scanned for error regularly anyway with Advanced SystemCare, so that won't be needed to scan those other Drives during boot.

Do you know how to disable those other Drives/Volumes from being scanned during boot up?

Or, do you know how to make just the C Partition as only Volume to be set to be scanned during boot up?
(There must be a registry key that has [ Drives* or Drives\* ] as command (or something similar). Perhaps that can be set with just the C drive to be scanned? That would shave off at least 30 secs, if not more if you can help me out with this one...

PS hopefully I didn't make it sound more complicated than it is ;)
Just tried to be as accurate as I could with my description to depict my problem... or better yet to resolve my problem.

But I think that you know what I mean?

Regards Carlo

Carlo,

What's you actual restart time? You can use this below in Vista as well to time it.
You could also check your BIOS settings for a "Quick boot" or "Fast Boot" type option to help some by disabling the "startup diagnostic". In addition, have only your Windows hard drive listed first in the boot priority order list in BIOS to eliminate checking for other drives to boot from. :)

Shawn, my BIOS doesn't have these options: "Quick boot" or "Fast Boot".
Instead I found the Diagnostic boot & disabled it, that saved me some secs, but my restart time is still 136 seconds.
For a Vista Home Premium 64 bit this is too much IMO. Something must be holding it up, or several processes, i don't know.

I don't see those 4 Virtual Drives anymore, so thats an improvement, yet not perfect though.
With XP I managed to boot in 30 secs, not expecting the same with Vista but around a minute should be doable...

However, my first boot device should be the CD Drive, no?! Just in case I have to boot from CD?
"only your Windows hard drive listed first in the boot priority order list in BIOS to eliminate checking for other drives to boot from."

Whether I have my CD Drive boot first, second or not that will only save a handful of seconds, besides the 'hangup' seems to happen during the NFTS Scan, approximately +30 secs in the boot process.

In one of the tips found in another thread registry key is mentioned:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

& then in BootExecute on right hand side pane I have:
autocheck autochk *sasnative64

Is this the right registry key to change that to C only?

Yeah, that's a bit long, but not to terrible with Vista.

Check using step 6 in the tutorial below to make sure that the Time to Display the List of Operating Systems at Boot box is unchecked. This will save you 30 seconds if it is currently checked.

Operating System to Start - Change Display List Time - Windows 7 Help Forums

autocheck autochk * is the default entry for BootExecute.

Hi Shawn, I was able to get a faster boot time with the tips so far.

Then late yesterday I found a program called DLL Suite & that repairs all broken .dll files on my PC.
Thought that would help but now its even worse, Windows Update doesn't work anymore. I think that DLL Suite registered the wrong dll's. I've tried Microsoft Fixit, to an avail. Also some Drivers seem not to work anymore, and the Removable Storage Service, although I had issues prior to installing that DLL Suite. Looks like I might be better replacing an Image of C, instead of trying and find fixes manually...

Just out curiosity Shawn, but if I were to change the default BootExecute autocheck autochk * into:

autocheck autochk\C

You think that would help? (Or perhaps this above command needs some tweaking)
I can take a risk as the chances are high that I'll have to restore an Image with Acronis anyway.

Since it's not chkdsk that is running at startup, I would recommend to leave the "BootExecute" data value at it's default autocheck autochk *.

Yeah, those fix it all type programs usually tend to cause more problems. At this point, you might consider backing up anything not already included in your image, then restore the image to start fresh again. :(

Yes, I'll have no other choice than to replace an Image.
Good thing is I just made one before doing so many changes :)

That DDL Suite I tried has the appearance to be malware, because very strategic settings are changed.
For instance System Restore doesn't work anymore, and on top of that the restore points of my C partition have been removed!
That program 'allegedly' found 199 dll's to repair, with a second scan another 40-something, but each dll was located in core folders like System32, Assembly, Drivers etc... The site where I found that program looks OK though, so maybe it ain't malware because it could also be that it changed dll's to the Vista Home Premium 64 SP2 state, and since then many Microsoft updates & patches have been released, so maybe the version numbers don't match. I tried to rectify it with sfc/scannow & also via ERD Commander I replaced bad drivers but in the end it didn't help much...

PS I was able to boot, prior to installing DDL Suite, in 116 seconds. That was pretty good actually.
I better never tried that program, but its too late for that, another $20 wasted and a valuable lesson learned I guess.

I'm going to restore my C now and see how that goes. Thanks for your help Shawn, as always ;)

Yeah, that program sounds a bit suspicious. I hope it goes smoothly with the restore.
