You can disable this disk check by following the instructions below on the computer:
- Hold down both the Windows key and the letter R at the same time.- In the box that pops up, type: regedit- Click the OK button
- Navigate to the following key in the left pane: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
- In the right hand pane, double click BootExecute.
- The default value of the key is autocheck autochk *
- Add: /K:C at the end before *. /K
It should look like the following: autocheck autochk /k:C *
- Click Ok after you make the changes and you will be all set.

I have to leave for the day but I will try this when I get home tonight.
So this means that it won't come up with that option anymore? does this mean that my computer is fine and doesn't need checking?
I always thought it didn't ask you to do that unless it needed it?
It says drives need checking for stability (not the right word but can't remember - maybe consistency?.
Just want to be sure I'm not disabling something that I need. But then again, it's obviously not working if it only goes through process 1 of 3, and 53%!
Being that it fails at 53%, you may wish to backup any data on the drive as that may be an indication that it has faulted sectors on the drive.
You can disable it without danger.
