  1. Stop ckdsk - 2 choices?

    I "imaged" my Win2k partition w/DrvImage and know when I bootup CkDisk runs.

    I have been told to go to a DOS prompt and enter chkdisk C: /F (F is the partition that I have Win2k on)


    I have read to:

    Run the Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe). You must use Regedt32.exe and not Regedit.exe
    Goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
    Change the BootExecute value from:
    autocheck autochk *
    autocheck autochk /k:x *

    Are the commands doing different things and which one should I use?

    ChdDsk no longer coming up?

    For whatever reason ChkDsk evidently repaired the problem. I restarted to read the results of the ChkDsk and it booted up with no ChkDsk.
